As requested made this an answer. it looks like the threads have some pipe dope on them. a couple of wraps of PFTE / Teflon tape on the threads will seal it up. the small rolls at the home stores are less than a dollar. that will seal it up if there is not enough left on the threads. – Ed Beal May 26 at 19:02 delete


Ed's right. Or if you have a washer for a garden hose laying around, you can put that on before screwing it in. I know they sell about 20 of these for a few dollars at the big box home improvement stores, it's handy to keep them around the house.
