Summary At present water treatment and distribution is of high priority to ensure that communities have access to safe and affordable drinking water. Current information states that in the United States a total annual cost of $36 billion (US) is spent replacing aging infrastructure, lost water from unaccounted-for leaks, corrosion inhibitors, internal mortar linings, external coatings, and cathodic protection as a result of corrosion. In order to reduce the cost incurred as a result of corrosion in the water distribution industry, it is essential that better corrosion management and preventative strategies are implemented. However through investigation of research previously undertaken by others, it was found that there was a lack of study of corrosion within distribution systems in the tropics taking into account the related seasonal temperature variations. To assist in the development of management strategies to improve the outcomes of drinking water distribution systems, the authors propose to implement a pilot study involving the installation of a corrosion reactor based on standard corrosion assessment technologies in a water distribution system located in the tropics.
