Copper Pipes – Aggressive Water Conditions


Corrosion of water pipes was observed and the water had a metallic taste

Water Supply

Bore water


The pH of the bore water was checked and found to be low (acidic).  The corrosion was exacerbated by the bore water going through a water softener.  Soft acidic water can cause corrosion.


The water was buffered to reduce the aggressiveness of the water and corrosion of the copper pipes.
