30 year old dry joint

This was found in a commercial premises, it must have been leaking for 30 years..... not only was the joint dry, (the solder hadnt run the whole way round) but the pipe hadnt been inserted fully in, it was in the joint about 4mm! could have been nasty if the pipe had got knocked out of place.......

This is what soot does to a pipe ......... and it wasnt even WET, it was completely dry...... This could have been bad. This is a closeup from the entry before.

I was called to a gas safety inspection........ massive leak on the gas..... no smell reported.... i found this pipe behind the DFE inset fire... corroded right through, it had been protected with gaffer tape, not Denzo....... be warned... even tiny mistakes can end up with huge issues after a few years...
