Hey Guys

Just made my own Copper piping cooler.

Placed it in white synthetic vinegar, it became nice and clean, but where it wasn`t submerged, it corroded with green-blue staining.



So I thought maybe it`s because of the conductivity differences between the stainless steel pot and the copper, so I placed it in a plastic container.



But the same happens, where it`s not submerged, it corrodes. I didn`t wash the pipe after submerging it in vinegar.

Any suggestions ?

Not sure about exactly what you're trying to do here, but that's just a mess of copper tubing in a bucket.
