Dunno - I'll have a look tomorrow when I demount it to hole drill the
ceiling... Must be a manufacturing scratch though, because it is
absolutely regular and perfectly straight. Although this is my "stock"
that have been lying around for years, they have been stored nicely in a
box in the corner of a cupboard so I'm pretty sure I didn't cause it...
Better check it in case it might impact the seal on a compression
fitting as there's one going on the bottom end). Got several lenghts -
could relegate this to an all soldered section.
As I say, pretty sure BES supplied so it should not be some dodgey crap
from some dodgey manufacturer. Although another pipe did have some
noticeable pitting, but that could have been really old stuff left over
from the previous stock.
Not that I can see - there are various "pencil lines" running
longtitudinally - must be just die marks I guess.
The long mark turns out to be 2' long - so yes, must be a manufacturing
scratch. It should miss the compression joint so I'll use that as is...

We had a three inch copper drain line fail. It just started leaking and it took
opening up the base of the wall structure to remove it. It looked exactly ad if
a deal had failed lengthwise along the bottom. It was under the floor for more
than forty years, but I thought it was good for the life of the structure. I've
also heard that the past few years here on L. I., Copper fittings and pipes a re
pinholing since our water got hard.
