Is a leaking gas fitting something a non-professional should even attempt to fix?
Symptoms: There is a slight off odor around the hot water system, after some experimentation of turning the gas off at the valve and waiting 30 minutes the smell disappears. Later opening up the valve again the smell returns.
It's a copper pipe with a tap valve.
Can I just use some Thread Seal Tape (plumbers tape)? After turning off the gas at the main.
