    I got some "pink tape" today. It's basically heavy duty thread seal tape, so I guess a little thicker than the white teflon tape? Hopefully, I can catch Jwin in the morning, before he goes off to drive a tractor, to work on our leak. It's right at the gate valve. I guess he can wrap the two connections with the pink stuff and see if that helps!

    Thanks guys! :)

    Do mean "unscrew the connections, rewrap them with the pink stuff, screw them back into place, and see if that helps?"

    Yes, that will definitely do it, Mom!! :)

    Yes, just heavier grade than the white teflon tape. Almost seems to mold like pipe dope does. Much easier/nicer to use.
