    I have a 5 y/o 86 gal vertical Water Worker pressure tank. It has developed a tiny leak (1 drip per minute) thought the threaded nipple on the bottom of the tank and the 90 degree elbow.

    What is my best fix for this?

    I thought about trying to replace the elbow, however then the issue becomes if i cant get it on tight enough or get it on tight and aligned with the slot for my plumbing to go through the stand i might create a bigger problem.

    Would an epoxy seal this tiny leak better?
    Are their any products that you have used that you would recommend me trying?

    Thank you for any help.

    If it is the nipple above the elbow that comes with the tank, you can't fix it. But Water Worker has a 5 year warranty, so you need to hurry on down there.
