    @mikedo sorry to hear about your troubles. I didn't know they gouge copper.

    What I have done is use a adjustable wrench adjusted to match the O.D. of the pipe and push the wrench against the fitting. This usually will release the fitting. I also clean the pipe before I install the fitting to be sure that nothing will make the joint leak or jam up on the pipe.
