He gave me a plastic piece which was threaded on one end to go into the brass fitting and was a barb to insert into the poly supply line. It leaked.

Any suggestions on the proper way to fix?

Thanks for you help guys. I did end up calling a plumber because it was better than me taking a day off from work.

Here's what I did learn in the process:
- When you aren't sure about the pipe you are dealing with, try to take a piece with you if possible. It will save some back and forth trips.
- While Home Depot is great for most things, nothing can replace a well stocked plumbing store and the proper parts.

Final photo attached of the plumbers work. Cost $200 and it took him about an hour. I could have done it cheaper, but now I have a receipt and a warranty on the work for the home inspector who comes today, so all in all, I'm good with how it all ended. Thanks for the feedback.
