:212 Sacrificial Anode

Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

1:5:10:212 EcoTip: Metal water heaters have a sacrificial anode that helps maintain your water heater by reducing the electrolysis of the metal tank. Checking it and replacing it when needed will save money by keeping you from having to replace your water heater as often, and saves landfill space.

***********************************

 Additional Information:

For more information about replacing sacrificial anodes take a look at the home energy article by Larry and Suzanne Weingarten

To learn almost everything there is to know about water heater’s – I recommend Larry and Suzanne’s book “The Water Heater Workbook” published by Elemental Enterprises, PO Box 928, Monterey, CA, 93942, 408-394-7077
