Installed new electric water heater- Incoming line 3/4" PVC (cold water side) with 3/4" threaded male PVC fitting joined to 3/4" brass ball valve, followed by 3/4" galvanized 2" nipple, followed by 3/4" flexible water heater line with brass fittings. Used teflon tape on all threaded fittings. I have leaks at the galvanized nipple, and at the PVC male threaded fitting (and an extremely tiny, tiny bit at fitting going into the water heater). I have tightened until I can tighten no more and I still have a drip that slowly seeps at these joints. BE EASY WITH ME GUYS!! I am in school and living off financial aid and a part time job, so I can't afford a plumber. Any suggestions as to how I should remedy these leaks? I feel like this!!!
