Surely waterparks and chemical processing plants couldn’t have anything in common, right? Not so fast. Waterparks and chemical plants are more similar than you might think. So, what do waterparks and chemical processing plants have in common? Corrosion Issues!
What Causes Corrosion?
Waterparks attract millions of visitors each summer. In fact, over one million people visited Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels alone in the summer of 2016. Think about it, the reason that waterparks are so attractive is that the water provides an escape from the unbearable heat.
So, with millions of people visiting waterparks each year, the water needs to be purified with large amounts of chlorine. This is where the corrosion comes in to play. Lots of chlorine equals lots of corrosion. Now, what’s the solution? We’re glad you asked.
