I just bought a 12yr 50 gal Whirlpool 47" water heater at Lowes. Of course, the instructions never mention a Dielectric union.

Are the rumours true about using a brass nipple to prevent the electrolysis. or is a Dielectric union or nipple the only solution? My copper flex tubing between the house and water heater do have rubber washers if that helps any.

waterheaterrescue.com didn't really answer my question when doing a search.

Thanks.
