Strange Corrosion on Copper Pipe

Recommended Posts

So in the same house as the water main contraption there were just a couple sections of copper pipe that had this weird looking corrosion over the entire length. A couple sections look to have been replaced, others were original and just fine. Looks like maybe a pipe from a bad batch with contamination in the Copper or something acidic/caustic condensing on the cold pipe, but then again the next section in line right next to it looked original and spotless, so... I figured I'd throw it in the pit and see what comes back.

I live in the same lake community just a few blocks away, nothing like this in mine or any of the other houses I've looked at around here. Its public water (from Twp. wells) so I don't think its acidic water.

Ok, have at it.
