In response to Re: Small Leak

: I am installing a pedestal sink. I am using hard piping (pardon me if I don't use the correct lingo), 3/8" from the shutoff to the faucet.

: I am using the type of supply line that is chromed copper, with a "ball" on the faucet end, and using a brass nut to attach it to the faucet inlet.
: I am using teflon tape on the threads. The problem is both hot and cold leak just a bit from the top of the nut that connects the supply to the inlet,

: I have followed the included directions, what the heck am I doing wrong?! Ken P

Try it again without any Teflon tape. Solid risers with the ball end, seal between the ball and the threaded socket of the faucet . The nut pulls up tight. Teflon tape serves no purpose here except to get in the way and create leaks.
