After making the connection to my house water filter, I noticed a very small leak where the 3/4" threaded plastic(mip) adaptor fitting goes into the filters' housing.
I unscrewed it, and removed the old teflon tape and applied new tape, wrapped tightly about 3 times around the threads and re-installed it.
Again it still has a very small leak(drip). I have turned this fitting in as tight as I dare to go so as to not damage the housing of the filter.
Should I try installing it again with more teflon wrapping, or is there a better thread sealant than teflon.?
Perhaps "pipe dope" is the answer.
what would you pros suggest?
Thanks for any reply.
