MITT Magnesium Anode Rod
Magnesium anode rods are the most common type of anode rod. The magnesium anode rod protects the tank by corroding in place of the steel. Because the rod is designed to corrode, it will eventually wear away. It ideally used for water heaters, boilers and stainless steel containers where corrosion is common.

The first property to consider is their electrical potential. All metals generate a negative voltage when immersed in water.

The three most active metals used for sacrificial anodes are Zinc, Aluminum and Magnesium. The more negative the voltage, the more active the metal is considered, and magnesium generates negative 1.6 Volts compared to Zinc and Aluminum which generates negative 1.05 volts and 1.1 volts respectively. Hence, magnesium is highly preferred to give water heaters, solar heaters, boilers etc., a longer life.
How anode works:
When two metals are connected, water reacts with lower noble metal first. Anode rod is made from lower noble metal compared to the metal used in water heater, boilers etc. Water dissolves anode rod instead of rusting water heater, boilers etc. Thus, it increases efficiency, increases the life span and gives the optimum results. It greatly reduces maintenance cost and saves you time as well.

What to look for:
Replace anode rod when inspection shows exposed core is visible at top or bottom, or more than 6" of exposed core along length.

Rod that is covered with white calcium must be replaced.
It can help the equipment of the solar heater system such as the water tank and the evacuated tubes preventing water incrustation, melting silt and preventing erosion by lower cost.

The principle of cathodic protection is in connecting an external anode to the material to be protected from corrosion and passing of an electrical DC current. So that all area of the metal surface become cathodic and therefore do not corrode.
Replacement of the anode rod is recommended when consumption or weight loss is greater than 75%. The sacrificial anode equalizes aggressive water action providing cathodic protection for the water tank. The anode is a very important factor in tank life and should only be removed for inspection or draining.
