Mixer Valve Leak


I have a mixer valve that is leaking where the pvc pipe joins in to the steel threaded nut of the mixer valve. When I try to tighten that connection, I loosen the others. Is there any easy way to tighten just one of the connections or to back that connection out so we can put more pipe tape on the threads and tighten back up. Help! Broke home repair lady

Mixer Valve Leak


Some pictures would sure help.
Should be CPVC, copper or Pex not PVC for supply lines.
