I have a small leak coming from my hot water supply where it attaches to the faucet. I am hoping that I can just tighten it a little and that will take care of the leak, but since my experience with plumbing is never that simple, I am trying to think ahead to what I might have to spend the next few hours doing.
Can anyone tell me what the pipes are that are extending from the hot and cold supplies. Are they for expansion? I do have a hot water baseboard heat system in the house, so I don't know if they are related to that. Anyway - I don't want to get in over my head. Any help in identifying these would be great.
I hope tightening works but unless faucet was recently replaced I'm guessing it won't work but fingers are crossed.
The tubes in the picture are to prevent water hammer (sound when valves are shut quickly). Probably do little now as the air in them is gradually absorbed by the water and is gone (looks like plumbing is a few years old, but in good shape).
