Water feed tubing for the toilet bowl has green oxidation on connection fitting. Plumbing is only three years old, piping is brass finished tubing from brass shut off valve. Is this a concern, should I clean it and best way to proceed. Thanks.

The oxidation is a normal thing for copper. Once it forms the coating it will stop. There is no hazard from this and the pipe is not breaking down. If you clean off the oxidation, it will simply reform. The only way to stop this from happening is to clean it with green choregirl pad, then coat it with a clear finish that prevents oxygen from getting to the surface. It will still eventually get to the surface, but it will stay shiny longer.

Good Luck
