Pinholes in copper vent pipe
I'm remodeling my bathroom all the way down to the studs. I was about to hang another piece of sheetrock, when I discovered corrosion on a horizontal piece of vent pipe. I wiped the corrosion away and found holes, which range from 1/5 - 1/3" in diameter. :eek:
This is the top level of the house, and no water flows through this pipe. They are vents for a lower level toilet and sink.
What can I do to stop the corrosion, and keep them from getting worse?
As you can see in the picture, it would be difficult to replace this section. (Well, at least for me!)
