Pex shut off valve drip leak

Hey guys. I installed a vanity a few months ago and today the homeowners noticed there was a drip leak underneath the shutoff valve (or angle stop whatever you call it). I installed new 1/2 Pex valves with crimp rings. Even with the valve shut off there’s still a small leak so I’m guessing it’s just a bad crimp. The leak fills up a small cup of water every 24 hours or so. Unfortunately I’m on away on vacation until Wednesday next week so I can’t tend to it immediately. My questions are: 1) will this burst at any point soon and/or get progressively worse within a week 2) can I just recrimp the valve or do I have to shut the water off completely. Thank you! submitted by /u/transvaginal_mesh [link] [comments]
