Will different metals in water heater cause galvanic corrosion?

Published and updated

Our response

The Corro-Protec system prevents corrosion by making sure all materials in your water heater have the same electrical charge, eliminating the risk of galvanic corrosion which occurs from differences in material voltages.

Without Corro-Protec, different metals in your water heater can lead to galvanic corrosion, as the dissimilar metals interact with the electrolytes in water, accelerating corrosion.
