Staying with a friend in a rental apartment in Loma Linda, CA for a few days. We noticed a slow drip of water coming from the ceiling, and called the maintenance department. They responded pretty quickly, while we were out touring museums and airports. Came back to find a 4' x 2' (or so) hole in the ceiling, exposing a length of 1" copper, where they had used worm clamps to hold small rubber patches over 2 small leaks in the pipe. They did a nice clean job, but as we inspected it closely, we found several more spots along the pipe that were leaking. All those spots were at places on the pipe with small spots of corrosion on them. Has anybody seen anything like this? There are corrosion spots along the pipe in about a 4' section, but no obvious source of the corroding agent -- subfloor above shows no signs of leaks, etc.
