“Pin-holes” in copper pipe or
tubing is an old problem…There is, however, a new way to deal with this
costly and bothersome problem…Copper Knight deals with
this “pin-hole dilemma” by using a very old, but very effective method
of protecting metals from corrosion. This tried-and-true method is known
as “cathodic protection”.
Cathodic Protection uses a “sacrificial anode” to control the corrosion
process in many kinds of metals.
In plumbing, the most common application of this method is the use of an
anode inside domestic and commercial water heaters. It works so well,
that virtually every water heater manufactured in this country has one.
Copper Knight applies this old technology in a
new and unique manner. Instead of protecting the internal surfaces of a
water heater, it protects the entire internal surface of the copper
