    Anybody know the best way to neutralise acid well water that is attacking copper pipes and causing blue staining?

    seen many of installs with various solutions tried on well water . but in the end going plastic replacing the copper is a better option. also look at gledhill stainless steel vented cylinders. for future reference. think city plumbing do them around the same price as copper ones now.

    Its actually in a rented property... tenants want to pay to have it sorted, but I dont think that they would want to pay to replumb the whole house.... Any neutralisation systems available?
