I have just about completed the install of a full Thermal Store & underfloor
heating system - the primaries to the thermal store and the secondary feeds
are in 28mm copper ... as is all pipework in Thermal store 'cupboard'
All the joints have now serious green discoloration presumably initiated by
the flux ... what is the best way of cleaning this off ?
I don't intend varnishing the pipes (remember my parents used to use brasso
to make heating pipes shine) but would like to clean off the crud.

I think you really need something to neutralise the acid from the
flux, the Ajax will help to do that as a lot of those sort of cleaners
Got to admit I tend to give each joint a good wipe around with a damp
cloth whilst still warm and thus the flux residue still very soft.
None of my joints have gone green...
