Had a leak. Need help fixing the tube.

One of the screw caps on a water tube in my pantry has cracked. It leaked all over before I noticed it. I can't get the screw piece off of the tube to replace it. Can I even buy these replacement parts? If so, where? Need it fixed asap. Thanks

A new right angle will have to be purchased. The caps do not come off to my knowledge.

It looks like a quick release fitting, holed the plastic line in one hand,with the other hand push in on the metal piece, then pull on the tubing to release it from the fitting.

Looks like stardard PEX fittings. Any hardware or plumbing shop can fix you up. If that one 90 fitting is secured with a metal clamp, you'll need to cut it off and rent a clamp tool to replace. Optionally you could use "Shark Bite" fittings that don't require clamps.

If the plumbing is Pex, then a Shark Bite is an option. If you can remove the fitting and take it to a local plumbing supply store, they can probably help you out. Shark Bits work on the O.D. of a pipe and are advertised as only working on Pex, Copper, and CPVC. If the OD you have is the same as these then a SB will work.
