Powered Anode Combo

For Water Heaters With Combo Anodes Such as Bradford White and Some States and A.O. Smiths
Corro-Protec powered anode for heaters with combo anodes



  • a powered anode
  • pipe-thread seal tape
  • instructions
  • a stainless steel tee
  • stainless steel pipe nipples and elbow

This replaces the combo anode that came with your tank that sits in the hot port, integral with the pipe nipple there. Fits all brands of all sizes of glass-lined steel residential heaters with 3/4-inch ports. This is for use with Bradford Whites, and some A.O. Smiths and States.


The anode will keep your tank from rusting and breaking, while alleviating odor problems because of anaerobic bacteria found in some water that react with regular magnesium or aluminum anodes to produce hydrogen sulfide gas and a rotten-egg odor.

In water heaters with softened water but no odor issues, it provides a permanent replacement for sacrificial anodes, which are often consumed rapidly in softened water and thus, require frequent replacement.

If you have a vacation cabin where the water heater sits idle, it may be that, no matter what anode you put in it, the water will still smell bad. We don't want you to buy a powered anode if it won't solve your problem. You might do better to replumb your water heater to allow hydrogen peroxide to easily be added. That WILL solve the problem.

The products offered here are designed to make water heaters last longer, or solve specific problems. Installation is potentially do-it-yourself, but if you have the least doubt about your abilities, we suggest that you obtain expert help.

Remember also that if you have difficulties with installation, odds are that a professional or handyman will know a way to do it.

We ship by UPS Ground to the Lower 48 states, and by Priority Mail to Alaska, Hawaii and Canada.


This anode must replace the one that came with the tank or the smell won't go away. If your tank has two anodes, the second one must also be removed.

If you install this device in a way significantly differently from the instructions and intended use, you may void the warranty. Contact us if you have an unusual installation problem, or any doubt at all, and we can probably help.

If you have read our resources and still have trouble figuring out what you need, you can buy a consultation for $40 and we'll scope out your situation and make recommendations.
