    I am pretty sure i need a powered anode but thought i would describe my situation to be sure. I replaced my hot water heater with a Whirlpool electric hot water heater witch stop the smell for a short time i have two filters one under the sink and one under the house i am on a well i recently took my anode rod out witch stop the smell Should i put a electric anode or just run without one its only been one day without anode. I only paid 300 for the hot water heater but have spent about 1200 on filters and plumier labor so far . My girlfriend will not take a shower because of the smell Thank you

    If you’re not using a softener, there’s a pretty good chance that just putting in an aluminum/zinc anode will be enough. There have been one or two cases where people bought them and still had odor, one just recently, but I’ve sold hundreds of them where they did work.

    If you do have a softener, go with the powered anode.
