Water Heater Question: What Is The Water Heater Anode Rod?

Monday, March 4th, 2013

We rely on our water heaters every day for hot showers and baths, and clean clothes and dishes. One of the most overlooked components of your water heater is a piece of equipment known as the anode rod, commonly referred to as the sacrificial anode. The anode rod may be the most single important factor affecting the lifespan of your water heater.

What Is An Anode Rod?

Anode rods are typically about 39” in length and ¾” in diameter. They are often made out of a steel core wire and wrapped in magnesium, aluminum or zinc. Often screwed to the top of your water heater, the anode rod “sacrifices” itself chemically to the water inside. All metallic elements are reactive on some scale. Because the metal used on the rod’s outside is less “noble” than the steel on the inside of your water heater, the electrolytic reaction with the water in your tank will eat away at the rod instead of damaging the tank itself.  It’s an age-old method to make sure your tank water heater doesn’t begin to rust.

Why Get Regular Water Heater Repair and Maintenance in Orlando, FL

The lifespan of your anode rod depends on the composition of the water, the quantity of water running through your water heater on a daily basis, water temperature as well as the quality of the tank itself. The inspection and replacement of your anode rod is an essential part of any homeowner’s maintenance. If you don’t catch a depleted anode rod before it’s too late, then the inside of your water heater’s tank may start to rust. Moreover, it can also break off and bounce around inside your tank, which can cause damage to the tank’s liner.

Knowing how your anode rod affects your hot water supply may help you to avoid water heater repair in Orlando, FL. For water heater repair, maintenance and installation services, call Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI) today.

The Future Home of Army Specialist B.J. Jackson

Friday, March 1st, 2013

Here is the future home of Army Specialist Robert Jackson and family in Orlando, FL! Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. has been involved in this build and is a proud supporter of Building Homes for Heroes. We are very excited for the upcoming date when B.J. and his family can move into this wonderful home and join the Orlando community.

Army Specialist B.J. Jackson of the 186th Military Police Company was selected to be part of a team whose mission was to set up camp and headquarters for the entire unit’s arrival in Iraq. On August 7, 2003, B.J. was driving a Humvee with other soldiers through Baghdad. The vehicle triggered a roadside bomb and was immediately hit by a rocket propelled grenade. A thick, black smoke cloud billowed and the soldiers were besieged by Iraqis firing AK-47s. B.J. was trapped in the burning wreckage.  Several hours lapsed as soldiers fought off the insurgents and worked to extract B.J. from his vehicle to transport him to safety. He was then airlifted to an Iraqi field hospital for immediate care, then to Kuwait and finally to Germany for additional treatment.

After being stabilized, he arrived at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas on August 12th.  Over the first five days, Jackson received 25 units of blood.  To help the healing process, he was placed in a medically-induced coma.  He remained in a coma for a month.  Jackson lost both legs below the knee and suffered severe burns on his arms, legs and back, and flash burns on his face and head.  He spent nearly 50 days in the post burn unit.

B.J. and his wife Abby currently reside in Iowa with daughters Brilynn and Hailey, and sons Conner, Nolan, Parker and Drake.  Building Homes for Heroes will build the Jackson family a home in Orlando (9901 Sweetleaf Street off Narcoossee Road / Lake Nona).  It will be their dream home in a wonderful neighborhood.  For more details and photos visit:
