AIMS To investigate the influence of micro-organisms associated with copper corrosion on 'blue water' corrosion in drinking water. METHODS AND RESULTS Laboratory rigs comprising of polycarbonate containers attached to annealed copper plumbing tubes were filled with Melbourne drinking water and sterilized by autoclaving. The copper tubes were inoculated with sterile or nonsterile extracts obtained from corroding copper and allowed to stand for 7 days. The extracts were drained and the tubes… CONTINUE READING
