Guys, thought I would ask this question, as I have always wondered why there was a magnesium rod in W/H's? Years ago, when my dads last house was built (~19 yrs ago) the plumber pulled the Magnesium rod, hacked it off and put the stub back in on day one (well water). I was 12, so I really didnt care, or know at the time what was going on, I just remember him doing it. I do recall my dad working on a house where they had complained of low hot water levels, and the plumber couldnt even get the rod out, and I swear he said it was due to mineral deposits building up on the rod. Its an old question that I had, so I am sure you guys know the answer.
No announcement yet.
