    Has anyone experienced green water because of improper grounding of appliances? Or whole house?

    I have a client/landlord and their tenant is complaining of green water.
    It looks like copper.

    I know copper pipes corrode green inside, but usually this coating is stable.

    He installed an electric tankless water heater himself along with the dishwasher and the fridge water.

    I read that improperly grounded appliances connected to the plumbing can cause excess corrosion through electrolysis.
    Any thoughts on this?
