The link was originally posted by derekmt, but I thought it deserved greater prominence

Excellent document.

Asan aside, you can get copper corrosion in systems containing ultra pure water brought on by changes in oxygen level. Dealt with by getting rid of the copper water interface and using St/Steel.
