Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). Experts aren't employees / agents of Just Answer. We are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers. I strive to provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service, let me know what's needed from me so your pleased.

If the fitting can be tightened a little to stop the leak then try that. If it continues to leak then check and see if the pipe has been rubbed through, kinked, bent or impacted. If the leak is at the fitting remove it to see if the seal has failed. If it to is fine then its the flare on the pipe meaning a new pipe is needed.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.

I'm only paid from the deposit you've made when you rate 3,4, or 5 stars.

There has to be a flare on the end of the line or the line would be able to pull out of the fitting.
