Abstract

Reduction of water constructions and installations problems, improvement of construction life, provision, transference, distribution, purification and reservation of water are of the most important matters in urban culture due to the importance of drinkable water supply for cities and villages of the country, considering the increase of need in consumption of water supply. One of the basic troubles of industries and consumers in the whole country is the maintenance of water infrastructure and constructions which cost a fortune to construct and utilize. Through the stage of utilization, preservation of the facility is very important. Through this presentation, we take a look at the subject of corrosion in Water cylinders made of metal, concrete or mixed materials considering past experience. Corrosion is mostly due to an unsuitable environment. Such soluble compounds as sulfur, hydrogen, carbon dioxide etc. in the water accelerates the process of corrosion greatly.
