    Hey everyone!
    I have this going on in my house (see attached). I have no idea what kind of pipe or what kind of joint that is...I'm a student here...but I would really like to fix this. Can someone please help?

    Thank you very much :)

    It is PEX and the plastic fitting has cracked.

    You can use a Sharkbite couping to fix this.

    Is that like saying Dillinger gave the mafia a bad name?
