Re: Diesel fuel and bottoms water pH
True. By reducing suspended water and also reducing biomass growth.
But unless your draw is DEAD bottom that won't eliminate a thin layer of water on the bottom and the possibility of pitting through. Sloshing underway will also help, if there are some effective corrosion inhibitors on board. But not at the lowest point.
It's not so much how much water, but whether it is sour, and that doesn't seem to take many bacteria.
