    grounding electrodes??

    I remember something about using lengths of zinc based wires along side regular piping so that the zinc would oxidize first saving the regular piping from oxiding due to ground currents.  It was weird bit of fact stuck in my mind, and what's weirder yet is someone else is asking... (LOL)
