How to use "Anode" in context?

When an electrician is installing and repairing electric wires, they must use a specific type of wire called an anode wire. The anode wire is used to connect the positive end of the electrician's wire to the metal part of the electrical box, outlet, or wall. The metal on the anode wire is susceptible to corrosion from the electricity, so the anode wire must be kept clean. If the anode wire becomes coated with soot, acid, or grease, it will not conduct electricity as well and will have to be replaced.
