In response to Re: Blue color on shower tile.
dean:--The pretty blue color is Copper Sulfate or Copper Chloride and it is coming from inside the copper piping. Copper leaching is the result of electrolytic corrosion and can be controlled by eliminating the DC electrical current that fuels the process. It is some times much easier to fight fire with fire by installing a device that overwhelms the corrosion process with an abundence of Magnesium ions.
See the site below for some information on pin hole leaks and copper leaching that you will find interesting and informative.

: Is this from the softener? If so anything i can do or adjust to eliminate this? Thanks
