Need help with a redsea reefer 170

Hello RC,

We just move and i had to take my reefer170 apart for the move. Put everything back and my piping is leaking. Any advice for the leak? The tank is about 4 years old. Thanks

A new plumbing set can be had through Red Sea. I cracked one of my pipes over tightening it. Which one is leaking?

All 3 were leaking so a friend told me to use teflon tape on it. Its not leaking anymore. The leak was coming from the rubber seal. I guess it get hard after time.
