difficulty connecting Brizo faucet.
This is not the first time I've installed a faucet but the first time where the faucet body has female ends rather than male.
It's a Brizo Trevi lavatory wall mount. The installation specs say only
"MAKE CONNECTIONS TO WATER LINES
Install hot and cold supply piping to the valve body."
So I have the supply lines. I got two brass 1/2" nipples to install into the faucet body. The Home Depot guy said use thread seal tape but the join kept leaking and then I read that thread seal tape only works with tapered not parallel thread.
So I figure I need a washer, but when I put my finger into the faucet body there is no surface for the washer to compress against. There's a bit of a rounded of projection on one side but that's it. It's really mostly hollow, it widens out past the threads and any washer is likely to sproing up there and get lost inside.
What gives here?
