My group de security on the ballon started leaking recently and as it was getting worse I dicded to replace it.
The problem I have is that when I tighten the new one up to the tank the inlet is in the wrong place for the pipe. If I loosen it it water weeps out on the thread.
Have tried putting a couple of washers at the bottom of the threaded fitting and using boss white jointing compound on the threads but neither seems to cure the problem. Only thing I can think of trying is hemp on the threads but I can’t find it at the moment.
Anyone any suggestions?
