Pinhole Leak Copper Water Pipe

I've had this for a while but haven't done anything about it, as I address other issues and, honestly, forgot about it. My attention was drawn to it today. May be getting slightly worse:

I have installed shark bite shut offs in some other spots in the basement but, overall, am a novice with pipes.

For this particular section, would I be able to use compression/shark bite style add ons?

Thanks for your help!

Re: Pinhole Leak Copper Water Pipe

If you dont have soldering skills or just dont like it, sharkbytes make it a very simple fix Joe. I have some over six years old and still no leaks.

If you go the sharkbyte route; I would get sharkbyte tee, couple sharkbyte couplings, and some extra pipe to make the repair. You can always bring back what you dont need.
