Anti-Electrolysis Skimmer Basket Weight

The Anti-Electrolysis Skimmer Basket Weight was designed to stop metal erosion, and plaster discoloration due to Electrolysis. Keeps skimmer basket in place.  Mounts to the inside or outside any skimmer basket. The Anti-electrolysis Weight Acts as a sacrificial anode – A sacrificial anode can be defined as a metal that is more easily oxidized than the protected metal. Electrons are stripped from the anode and conducted to the protected metal, which becomes the cathode. The cathode is protected from corroding, i.e., oxidizing because reduction rather than oxidation takes place on its surface.
