Bathroom sink supply line leak


Hi,
Novice diy-er here....A previous owner of my apartment connected a spray nozzle to my bathroom sink. It's attached at what I believe is the supply line. The hose was coiled under the sink and I didn't notice it for a while. Recently it started leaking. It looks like there's a hole drilled through the supply line where this hose is connected. There's a little screw or handle close to the supply line that seems to be the original "on/off" faucet.

How do I fix this? Do I need to be more specific? I can provide photos if that helps...

afarr,

First, shut off the water. It looks like if you cut the pipe before that ridiculous puncture valve (?), I don't know what it is, you will still have enough room to put a 90 degree compression fitting valve on the pipe. You can then hook up your water supply line to the valve and be done. This will require no soldiering and minimal skill.

hey afarr, after you shut off the water I would take that piece of garbage off and cut as close to the hole as you can with a pipecutter, just to give you as much pipe as possible to work with.

Whooo nelly, before you do any work, please clarify for me. You said the previous owner of your apartment. Does that mean someone else owns the place? If so, don't touch anything!!! If you own it then cut the saddle valve off and try your hand at what would be a simple repair for a professional.
Cut it off and get a 5/8 by 3/8 comp stop, and re-hook up supply line.
