      We have electricity coming into our house on the main copper water line. The current is creating high EMF readings inside the house. It has been suggested that installing a dielectic union will stop the flow of current. Will this work? Other sugestions have included an anode bag or use of an insulating coupler.Thanks, Rick

      Are you sure it is coming in, and not going out? The copper line being buried in the ground should be draining the electricity off before it gets there. Also, in many areas the water line is the house ground, and the codes require a jumper around dielectric unions to maintain the electrical path. Di-electric unions are mostly comsmetic. The water itself gives the electrolysis path, and would probably also conduct the subject electricity. The best way to test the situation, would be to install a section of PVC pipe in the house connection and see if the problem goes away, and also check if the system is still grounded, unless you already have a visible ground rod. : We have electricity coming into our house on the main copper water line.

      Rick:—-High milivolt readings, and differences within your copper water piping system, is a good indication that copper pipe problems are not far away. Copper piping if laid in an acidic or alkaline soil of differing Ph, can actually generate a measurable amount of electrical energy. The problem with this copper dynamo scenario is that the EMF is the fuel it needs to destroy the copper by creating pin holes in the copper piping. The water traveling inside the piping is the electrolyte, and with that little bit EMF, the copper in the pipe gets wander lust, and takes a trip right down the drain pipes. Unless some measure is put in place to guard the copper piping against attack from this voltage from hell, it is only a matter of time before copper pipe failures begin to occur.Bud Hardman Suncoast Plumbing Inc.
