I can do basic copper work, but I am a little stumped on the best way to fix this one. I am not sure how much of the piping needs to come out or if I need to be careful when adding heat to the handle. Anyone know the best way to fix this one? The pipe going from the wall is the main into my house. It then goes to a water heater, etc. It all seems so tight in there as in no working room for the joints to even come apart, how do I pull this one off? The circled area is where there is a small leak. Its coming from the joint above the handle. I just love how the previous owners just slopped flux all over the place and made it a huge mess.
