ABSTRACT
The article identifies the forms of copper-tube corrosion and ways of mitigating them in domestic water systems. It details soldering-flux-induced pitting attack. Hydrogen-sulfide-induced pitting attack is also explored. It discusses erosion corrosion and cuprosolvency. Chemistry-related cold-water pitting and concentration-cell corrosion are also discussed.
