Hello.Click here please There is a flexible packing under that nut, it compresses when you turn the nut clockwise, that should stop the leak.If not then the pipe threads at that location might need to be resealed. Let me know what you can discover, we can go from there without a time limit if you will rate my work so far positively... its how I earn a living, and does not affect your charges. To rate just locate the 'rate your expert button' and follow the prompts. In exchange I will hold the question open for any follow up you might need. Thanks

If 1/8th of a turn slows the leak, then we know that we are on the right track, tighten the nut a bit more in that case.
