Sure there is, or at least you should get it close. If it is an unplated pipe then take some sand paper or steel wool (I find sand paper makes the job shorter) and go over the pipe. This is to get rid of the discoloration, it will look all scratched up and silver when you are done. Then take some fine sand paper or rubbing compound on a rag (I prefer the rubbing compound) and buff the scratches out. The rubbing compound should polish it back to the shine it originally had.

This also works for plated pipes, but not quite as well. The spot will not be quite as shiny as the rest of the plating, especially if the pipe is new and the plating hasn't faded at all.
