Corrosion

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
