Bought this Aluminum rod after checking AO Smith web site for details. This is the second rod to replace existing rod which is 3 to 4 years old. Disappointing feature of these rods is that they erode more quickly at the top near the nut so that they can drop off if not inspected and replaced periodically. This rod is supposed to help remedy Sulphur-rotten egg smell in well water which does not disappear even if both iron remover and water softener are used as is my set-up. The Standard AO Smith rod in my 7 year old tank was Zinc, which in my experience, eroded after the first 2 years, leaving a significant amount of green and white "gravel" in the bottom of the HW tank. The material eroded from the rod has to go somewhere, so becomes a gravel deposit in the bottom of the tank, interfering with the heating of my natural gas fired tank. This gravel came out when I did my twice a year power drain and flush of the tank. The AO Smith hot line technician suggested use of the Aluminum Rod. The green gravel is gone with use of the Aluminum rod as is the dark green water that was at the bottom of the tank when flushed. The Sulphur smell (Iron Bacteria) still exists to some extent with the Aluminum rod and is also a function of the water temperature. The hotter the water near the faucet, the less smell with my gravity based recirc system. Also, the smell disappears for a few days after a tank flush. Look for water tanks like Bradford White that advertise a dip tube with special turbulators to keep the stagnant water from collecting at the bottom. As far as using an anode rod at all, I keep using one because it is a sacrifical item to prevent any other metal items in the tank from eroding. The lining might be glass but the fittings to the tank are metal. They wouldn't put those rods in the tank for no reason as they do cost money. My hope is to make this AO Smith water tank last another 10 years.

I installed this aluminum/ zinc anode rod in a 5 yr old 40 gallon water heater. I used bleach in the tank while I had the old anode rod removed. Once the new rod was installed, the smell was gone but only for a few days. My water system includes a well, whole house 3 stage water filter, water boss water softener and 40 gallon water heater. For the extra money spent, more than the magnesium anode rod, the aluminum/zinc rod was not worth it since I still have the rotten egg smell.

Comments about 3/4" KA-90 Aluminum / Zinc Anode Rod:
Smelly rotten egg odor every time we showered or opened any hot water valves in our home. We thought it was our hot water tank, but were told to replace the anode rod first before replacing the tank. We drained and cleaned the hot water tank with bleach as recommended before inserting the new rod,flushing it out a few times before inserting the new rod, rotten egg odor was immediately gone. Not sure how long the rod will hold up because of the high iron content in our well water, but we know to replace the rod when this occurs in the future. (We also have an iron cleansing and softening water system which prevents the iron water from filling into our hot water tank)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just what I wanted
I Had smelly hot water, for the $35 more than an alum. anode it is worth a try, no smell now but I also shocked the system, it fit my tank and installed easy, only time will tell how well it works.
Smell is gone
from Baltimore md
I bought this to get ride of the sulfur smell( rotten eggs) from my hot water. This can be a common problem for those on well water. The smell disappeared in about a day and after a week is still gone. Hopefully it stays gone.
Fit perfect and a better price

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
So far so good
Using these rods eliminated the rotten egg smell caused by the magnesium anodes. Highly recommend.
Accomplished its purpose.

It got rid of the sulphur smell and black specks in the water.
On advice from AO Smith we replaced the original anode with this one which is designed to discourage growth of things like iron bacteria that give the water a musty smell. So far so good!
