    Thanks Terry. I tried to find the longer pipe nipple online but it was out of stock and the other places cost almost more to ship it than the pipe costs so I'll search locally.

    Thanks Jadnushua. So I'm trying to think what I did wrong that caused the leak. I doubt it was that I didn't tighten it down enough so I'm thinking it may be I didn't use enough teflon tape.
