The corrosion of pipes and plumbing fixtures can cause a number of problems with your water. Corrosion is the gradual decomposition of a material by oxidation or chemical actions, often due to an electrochemical reaction.
Corrosion starts at the surface or a material and moves inward. Corrosion of iron or steel is commonly called rusting.
Some factors that accelerate corrosion:
- Acidity (low pH)
- High mineral concentrations
- Stray current electrolysis
- Galvanic corrosion caused by dissimilar metals
- Dissolved oxygen content
- Water temperatures
