    My etha is leaking, if you have a look at my pic the leak is coming from where the silver L shape bit is screwed to black bit. What should I do to fix it?

    If it's leaking from the threads use ptfe tape which you can pick up from any hardware store and if it's leaking from around the macro line it could be the prong not sealing

    I think it's coming from the thread. Do I just pull the black hose out of silver fitting. Then ptfe tap the thread & screw back, then push black hose back in. Thank for the help.....

    Yep. You can also use green or blue loctite to help seal which usually looks a biy neater if your bothered with that sort of thing.

    blue loctite will solve that pretty quickly if its the threads. also could be the macro not seated propely in the elbow. bit of soapy water around the fitting (not lots) will find the leak

    Green loctite is usually for bearing or dowel fitting, and sets off really hard. It can be as difficult to break loose as the red stuff

    Stick to blue loctite it works great on air fittings. Just make sure you allow enough time for it to dry before pressurising the system
