Compression joint fitting leaking

2 months ago

I woke up this morning to find water in the cabinet of my kitchen faucet. Since it’s Sunday, I will have to wait until tomorrow to reach my plumber. The source of the leak is the compression fitting. I have turned off both the hot and cold water source and drained the lines, but there is still a small tiny leak at the fitting and this has been going on for hours 😫 My remedy was to tie a kitchen towel around the compression joint to absorb the water and change the towel every few hours. My question is why doesn’t a water shut off shut off? Frustrating.
