    Any water conditioning first requires testing the water to see what you're starting with. If your water is acidic, it can eat the copper and leave greenish deposits; there are probably other things that can, too. Regardless, don't arbitrarily just try to add something without first getting it tested first as it is unlikely to solve your problem.
