Default Copper to pex ?

I found a small drip on a copper pipe, if it blows out before next week whenever the plumber comes,
And I need to emergency fix how do I connect copper to pex ?
The shelves are empty of 99.9% of any types of plumbing supplies
Plumber say donít touch it and maybe it will last, I can place a bucket under the sink to catch the drip

Shark bite. if you cant find any cut a piece of rubber tube and wrap it around it tight. Then put a hose clamp on wither side of the hole. It will get you by in a pinch

Put that wrap repair tape on it for piece of mind until it gets repaired correctly. Lowes home depot etc carry it.

That is the best self sealing tape on the planet IMO. Get a fool of it and wrap the leak with it and you Kingston not ever have to actually repair it.

Get a ac or other engine hose of the appropriate diameter and a couple of clamps. Good to go until a permanent repair can be made.

I would call a local hvac company and have them braze it. Those guys are not busy right now and have the copper skill-set.

Shark bite is the way to go. Pick some up a Lowes after the freeze. I also like the HVAC ideal. Just pick the parts up first. I think there copper is a different size OD. Some one else on here might know better.

IF you can't find what you need, let me know what size you need and I may have it. I have a box of SharkBite fittings. I am in Wimberley.
