water filter question
I recently had a small leak on the "in " side of my filter. It is a PUR brand with a plastic cap and then a clear canister that is threaded onto the cap. So in trying to reair the leak, I ruined the cap by crossthreading the brass fitting (line in) into the cap.
So my question is, I have gotten a new cap in the mail today and am inquiring......where the brass fitting screws into the plastic lid of the filter (on both the in and out sides).....should I use thread tape on the brass fittting or not. I am not a plummer so I'm not sure what the rule of thumb is on when to use thread tape and when not to. I know not to use it on pressure fittings, but not sure this is a pressure fitting.
Thanks for the help.....Brad
