About six weeks ago I installed a compression fitting to a copper pipe, which was to be used for the dishwasher inlet.
The nut at the back was leaking a bit, so I put silicone around it, worked for six weeks and no noticeable leaking.
Today it just burst off, water everywhere.
This is the compression fitting that came off. You can see the white silicone on the right side of the nut.
Instead of getting another compression fitting, can I just put JB Weld on the back end?
The blue part is where the silicone was, I want to remove it and put JB Weld there.
