Re: [APD] Copper
Copper pipes should be mighty crusty also after 60 years. I'd buy some upgrades personally.
You can run a metal removal filter/carbon etc or change the lines or run the line for a few minutes before doing the water change.

Subject: [APD] Removing Copper
To: aquatic plants digest
I'm moving to a house that has a 200' long, 60-year-old copper water line
running from another building. I think the water is picking up copper while
sitting in the line, and I've had trouble with both fish and plants there.
We're not using much water there now, and I hate to leave the water run for
20 min before doing a water change.
Will any of the commercial water conditioners remove, precipitate, or
otherwise render copper harmless?
