If the barbs are new and come with o-rings (in good shape), then not really. They should seal nicely. If they don't I spose you could resort to teflon tape.

Are you dealing with barbs that do not have an O'ring? Most swivel type fittings will leak if sideways pressure is put on them tape or no tape. With O'ring barbs, tape is not necessary

Teflon tape won't hurt unless you are screwing into plastic the added thickness could be enough to crack the item you are screwing into.

tape is not necessary, i just use it as a precaution. and as long as you dont use WAY too much tape or let it hang over the end of the barb it cant cause any problems

I was talking about the RASA 750 RS360 barbs that come with the kit.

You don't need to tape the threads.

There should be o-rings on them.

No need for teflon...if done improperly, it may come apart and muck something up.
