Eliminating corrosion in carbon steel wood fired water heater

Reply Mon 2 Nov, 2009 08:12 pm
I am building a wood fired hot water heater using carbon steel and am concerned with corrosion. I have considered galvanizing but find it not cost effective. I considered sodium silicate (water glass) but don’t know about longevity. Any suggestions?

Is this for year round use, ie. for domestic hot water or just for heating, Dockman?

If you use dielectric unions, I don't think that corrosion would be a major problem.

What about a sacrificial anode? Didn't H2o heaters used to have those?
