Our Installation Process Avoids Electrolysis Issues
Boaters have problems with electrolysis eating up their metal parts because of electricity and water.
So they add very costly zincs on to their boats to protect the metal parts.
We encase the wire in schedule 40 PVC from the fixture back to the electrical source. The wire is dry at all times and the water is never allowed to purge the PVC preventing even magnetic electric current in the water.
