    Default how to stop drops of water at hose joint?

    Installed Lowe Whirlpool 40 Gallon Gas water heater. Has small water drops at both input cold water and output hot water pipe connector joints at the top of water tank. The tank has two holes on top with 3/4" threaded female receptacles for cold water input hot water output.

    Tried different stainless steel hose and plastic breaded hose, using male+male adapter then female fittings, or just male fitting hose;
    with either/both Teflon tapes and Teflon pipe dope. Always has small drips of water coming out from the joint at top of tank.

    Finally, the least of water comes out is the male fitting plastic breaded hose directly screwed into the tank receptacles.

    How to stop this drip of water coming from these joints at the top of the tank? Thank you.
