OK, How about pouring used motor oil onto the steel where it comes out of
either the concrete or out of the dirt ?
I've never seen steel rust/corrode/galvanize if it's coated with oil.
And you can also consider BOILED LINSEED OIL.
After all, BOILED LINSEED OIL is THE main ingredient in ZIEBART !

Absolutely not. Increasing the pH could make the problem worse. The issue is
that while there is sufficient galvanizing applied to tower components to
protect them in air, this amount of zinc can be uickly used up when buried
I would direct you to review an article in the current issue of QST, "Is Your
Tower Still Safe", by yours truly. It will explain the problem; how to do an
inspection, and what to do to control corrosion fter the zinc is gone.
