Default Sweat it out.

I am an apprentice plumber and this is what I would have done. Heat up the solder with a torch and you will be able to pull the pipe out of the fitting once it gets hot enough. Remove the 90 and cut out the bad piece of copper. Clean the ends of the pipe with Emory and use couplings, a new 90, and some new copper and solder back together.

Thanks. Good to know. I’ve always thought since much of plumbing has to do with making horizontal pipes have an appropriate pitch the term came from making vertical pipes plumb and with appropriate lengths so the horizontal runs would be pitched appropriately.

Reminds me of mine but here an under sink water filter developed a small crack and was leaking for I guess several weeks until discovered. Filter replaced and all dried
out but despite running Charcoal & HEPA air filter, & for short time a small Ozone Generator in that cabinet the stink spread to the corner one on the right and won't go away.
Bottom of corner cabinet now looks like an upside down dome even though no sign water got in there. Hope to find a fix without having to remove counter tops ??

If the copper has been worn that thin in one spot, how thin is it in other spots?

I've been down your road with a copper drain in an old house - 60 years old. The third time I busted out the wall for a repair, I replaced the whole drain.

Don't use Fernco clamps... Ferncos have no reinforcements and are prone to twisting and splitting. Use Mission clamps with the aluminum/stainless reinforcements bands.

(Yes, I'm a master plumber and no I don't work for Mission... :^)
