Standard replacement magnesium anode rods for city water applications.


We carry a variety of anode styles and lengths, including standard hex plug and hot water outlet (nipple-style). Simple step-by-step instructions are included.


Magnesium is the metal of choice for sacrificial water heater anodes, ensuring proper cathodic protection of water heater internals and slowing down corrosion.


Internal rust is the #1 killer of hot water heater tanks. Replacing your sacrificial anode rod every 4-5 years prevents internal rust and corrosion.


Magnesium Anode Rods – Ensuring Your Water Heater’s Longevity 

Welcome to Water Connection, your go-to provider for a wide selection of magnesium anode rods. These rods are integral to maintaining your water heater’s efficiency, longevity, and overall performance.

Understanding Magnesium Anode Rods 

Magnesium anode rods are indispensable elements of any water heater system. Often referred to as sacrificial anode rods, they are designed to protect your water heater tank from the detrimental effects of corrosion. The anode rods achieve this by drawing corrosive elements present in the water towards themselves, thereby sparing the tank and heating elements from damage.

Why Choose Magnesium Anode Rods? 

Opting for a magnesium anode rod as your water heater anode can significantly enhance the lifespan and functionality of your water heater. At Water Connection, we offer an extensive array of magnesium anode rods, available in various lengths and sizes. We also provide both hex head and nipple type magnesium anodes to ensure a match for your specific water heater model and configuration.

Magnesium Vs Aluminum Anode Rods 

While aluminum anode rods are a common choice for many, magnesium anode rods offer certain advantages. Magnesium, as a more active metal, provides better protection against corrosion compared to aluminum. However, if you are dealing with extremely hard water conditions, aluminum zinc anode rods may serve you better due to their ability to resist the effects of highly mineralized water.

Replacing the Anode Rod

Periodically replacing the anode rod is crucial for maintaining your water heater’s longevity. An exhausted anode rod can no longer protect your water heater tank, potentially leading to costly damage. If you are unsure about when or how to replace your anode rod, our team at Water Connection is here to guide you.
