Isn't a cathodic protection system fairly expensive?  Is it hard to
I am not real knowledgeable in this area, but I would assume that you
would have to set up an array of electrodes thoughout the concrete
system.  I also read that there are some studies being done to find out
if cathodic protection has a long term effect on the bond between the
steel and concrete.

Do you just put a bunch of electrodes on the surface of the conrete and
run a low voltage current through them?

Sorry if these are stupid questions, but I really am in the dark when it
come to cathodic protection.
