How to fix and prevent corrosion on water heater lines


Quote:
Galvanized pipe is much more corrosion resistant than black iron, but you absolutely need the dielectric union to prevent corrosion, you can get them at any plumbing store on a big box store.
Not sure about the cost difference, but dielectric nipples might be cheaper than dielectric unions.

Thanks for all the advice. Looks like I just need to set some time aside to tear into it and figure out exactly what I have to work with. Hopefully it will be simple enough to fix once I do take it apart so we aren't without hot water for days...
