    Hi guys, any suggestions on how to fix this (leaking solder fitting)?

    I'm not confident soldering wet pipes so I'm thinking cut a section of pipe out, remove solder fitting and 2 compression couplings with one being a slip coupling?

    Thanks

    It is daft that they haven't put a compression coupling straight off the top of the boiler anyway. Two compression couplings and a bit of pipe will sort it
