When we have Copper and Aluminum we have corrosion - battery effect.
My question is:
Does Anodized Aluminum prevent corrosion?
How reliable is it?
Does it prevent it 100% or just slows it down?

Thanks

You can anodize yourself, just run some lye through the system. Get red devil lye at any large store as drain cleaner (becomming more and more rare). I am 99% sure that lye anodizes aluminum. . . but I want to be 100%, if anyone knows for sure. . .
