In the clean seawater without chlorination, the protective film of copper alloy tube is biofilm. The biofilm is damaged by low chlorination, therefore the biofilm is necessary to reinforce by Fe2+ injection. The protective film can be evaluated by measuring polarization resistance. According to the polarization resistance value, we regulated the concentration of Fe2+. Here we report a result for about four years. With this method, good corrosion control and good cleanliness have been maintained.
