In response to Re: Small Leak
The usual problem is that the compression ring is not lining up properly and is slightly crooked. Or the nut is being overtightened so the tubing is being deformed.

: 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?!

: Thanks,
