plumbing


I have a four year old Kenmore water heater. I cleaned up some corrosion on the connections, where the water lines connect to the heater. The water lines are copper; the corrosion is on the nipples of the water heater. The question is: is there anthing I can apply in this area to prevent this corrosion. The water lines above the connection is covered in pipe warp. Ol Timer

Add dielectric unions, this will prevent the corrosion.

Ol Timer,

Welcome to the forum. Great information here on many issues. I was just worried to see that Jack got to you first, he likes to get all the Plums out of the plumbers before any of the rest of us can get any. This is a really friendly group and you will get quite alot of good information on most anything you want to fix. Seriously, good info, Great Search, and some fun people who really want to help.

Glad to see you Here!!!!
