yeah Ima leak test it. So, I shouldn't use any tape? I'm just using it right now because putting on the tape doesn't seem to make a difference in how hard it is to screw in, but it seems like a nice precaution to have... although I may be wrong...
offtopic: how tight is too-tight?

I think a couple layers will do...the threads dont need to be sharp, It can be dull and when you screw it, the tape should stick and seel right.
