What is corrosion and how to stop it?

Published and updated

Our response

Corrosion is a natural process that happens when two metals or alloys come into contact with each other.

Electrochemical reactions take place at the surface of the metals, and this can cause them to deteriorate and even break down over time. In some cases, corrosion can lead to dangerous situations if not addressed in a timely manner.

There are several ways to prevent corrosion from happening. In your water heater, Corro-Protec’s powered anode rod stops the corrosion process permanently.
