    Default Extend length of copper pipe under kitchen sink

    Hello all. I just bought a new hot water dispenser as a replacement for my old one which had broke. I hooked up the faucet in the same sink mount as my old one and all was well until I attempted to hook up the cold water from faucet to wall. I was short about an inch. Is there anyway I could extend the joint? Thankyou. Below is a picture of situation.

    Hmm the copper pipe is soldered onto the faucet. Are you talking about extending the length of copper pipe from faucet? I was thinking a coupler or some small fitting could be put on there to provide an extra inch. Thanks for your response.

    Yes, you can get a crimp coupler and another length of copper tubing to extend the piece. You could probably stack multiple fittings together to make up the difference, but I wouldn't recommend that.

    Or a compression coupling and an additional piece of pipe.
