Teflon Tape – For your hose barb fittings
Teflon tape will stop the leaks! A must for wrapping your threads!
Also know as PTFE tape, use this to make a tight seal around the threads of your brass hose barbs. With the threads facing you, wrap 3 turns of tape clockwise. Make sure the tape does not extend over the end of the horse barb, this will prevent blockage.
