I used the search feature and found some good info on my issue. After installing my new pump, I had a small leak from the threads. I took it apart, cleaned the threads and reinstalled using dope and tape but it still leaked. Upon close inspection, it appears there is some damage to the threads on the pump. It may be from overtightening on my initial install.
I've read about using steel pipe to re-thread, and also read about using an O-Ring with Permatex to better seal the fitting. I also saw Waste refer to another method.
Is there any consensus on the best steps to take?
