    Default Copper and Green Stains

    I have copper pipes, which leaves blueish-green stains around the drains and in the shower. Would this help with my problem? p3 international chemical free water conditioner.

    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.
