Leak fixed

Well I fixed the leak in the water line. While helping my brother with his Airstream LPG lines, we were looking at what type of fittings to replace existing parts with. For the copper lines, you can use a flare fitting or a compression fitting with ferrule (or solder, but it is a gas line, yikes!) I prefer the flare fitting, but did not have a good reason to tell him other than my preference. However, after my experience with both fittings while working on the water heater bypass, I believe the flare fittings are more robust.
