    Rust & Corrosion

    To Bring It right to Its Basic Form Rust and Corrosion are Both Electrical Processes. Every Hot Water Heater Has A Sacrificial Anode Inside and If Changed Regularly Your Tank Could almost Last Forever. Large Ships And Submarines Have Them All Over Also. On Large Navy Ships They Have Two Dedicated Generators One Forward and One In The Rear Whose Job Is To Induce Current Into The Hull Thereby Thwarting Rust And Its Cousin Corrosion. The Device you Show Is Based On Solid Science As To The Products Function I Cant Tell. You Should Buy One and Give Us An Update In A Few Years:laughing::laughing:

    I install them on vehicles, I can say that the anodes do something. After the first yearly inspection of one of my first units, I noticed the paint is bubbling around the anode. After installing that one, I leant to scrape the paint under the anode to avoid this.
