Copper isn't something you should have to worry about. Both hot and cold come through copper pipes. I use both in my tanks, I use fertilizers with copper in them. All my fish and shrimp do fine. I also use copper as my only medication for external parasites, all my new fish go through a treatment. Shrimp are the only thing that can't tolerate the copper meds very well.

Running the tap water for a short time before using will rinse out most of any sediment picked up from the pipes. Copper pipes are probably safer than most.
