My copper water pipes show rust and corrosion.
Thats what the home inspector wrote about the house I have for sale. I am confused as to how to proceed. Dont copper water lines normally turn black and scaly after 50 years? COLD water rushes in on hot humid summer days and pipes sweat There are no leaks and although some lines have been replaced because of relocating appliances etc I really dont know what to do about this highlighted item?
Should I attempt to clean the lines somehow? Is there a good copper cleaner?
The buyer backed out and I just want the next home inspector to be happy with the condition of the house.
