Water leak at the copper pipe junction

I have a copper pipe in the basement. At one of the junctions there is a minor water leak. ..drips maybe 1-2 drops in a hour. What is the easiest way to fix it without spending too much money?

Welcome to the forums.

If you posted a picture it would be a big help. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...rt-images.html

Do you have a torch and have you done soldering before ?
Based on your picture.... you may be able to replace your leaking fitting with a Sharkbite fitting that just presses on with no soldering involved.
