New sprinkler valve leak question
Just finished building a 6 valve lawn sprinkler manifold with pvc and everything is dry and not leaking except one valve. It took 2.5 minutes for a small drop about 1/4 of the size of a dime to leak out where the 3/4" male pvc fitting screws into the new valve. I put teflon tape on all threads when I built it. I am not concerned about this. My question is will it get worse over time or do I just have to keep an eye on it? I have the time to cut it and retape it now but it is a lot of work for such a small problem. I am just wondering what other peoples experiences are with something like this. I remember the old saying " if it aint broke don't fix it ". I just dont want it getting worse but it might be easier to wait and watch. Any thoughts?
