      because of smelly water from my state water heater, two yrs old, i have been told that simply removing the anode rod will solve my problem. will this cause other problems in the future?

      It WILL cause premature tank failure.

      The anode is a “sacrificial anode”. The idea is that the anode is eaten away instead of the steel tank. Remove it and you risk your tank rusting out early in life
