Store Your Equipment Properly

Unused equipment is still at risk for wintertime corrosion. You can prevent this, or at least postpone it by storing your equipment properly.



Provide a climate- and humidity-controlled indoor location to store your equipment during the off-season. This could be a barn or other enclosed building that is equipped with dehumidifiers or air conditioning that removes the humidity from the air. This dry, climate-controlled environment takes away the one thing that is necessary for salt corrosion — water.
