Why is My Water Heater Delivering Rusty Water?
Poorly maintained water heaters also show several issues with the sacrificial anode system. This is the system that prevents the interior of the water heater from rusting. A sacrificial rod is placed in the center of the tank to collect all of the free radicals in the water. These are rough oxygen atom electrons released in the heating process. The released oxygen combines with the material in the anode instead of the steel tank. This causes the anode to wear down and drop a solid precipitate into the tank. This sediment builds up at the bottom of the tank and can cause everything from poor water heating efficiency to a sulfur smell coming from the tap. The best way to prevent this is to flush the system at least once a year.
