I think you are are referring to what is called a sacrificial anode rod.
If you have the Suburban brand water heater with it's steel tank, then yes you need to use an "anode" rod if you want it to last.
If you have an Atwood brand water heater with it's aluminum tank, then no, you don't use an anode rod.
