I hate loctite,

Loctite, loose bolts

Teflon tape, air and water connections.

I agree with the teflon tape route.  That's all I use.  Much more forgiving.  Loctitie is not meant as a sealer, I'm not sure why people use it as such, however, teflon is.  Otherwise plumbers would use loctite on gas fittings and I have yet to see a plumber do that, nor would I want one too.  Three wraps with teflon, and you'll be golden...

red loctite is more of permanent type of fastening agent.  Use red loctite on bolts that you dont ever plan on taking off or out of things.  Use teflon tape for all types of fluid fittings, and avoid loctite for those situations.

yeah my expansion kit came with red too...but oh well, also another reason it could be leaking is if you tightened the threads, and then loosened it a little, you never want to get pipe threads to tight, and then loosen them a little (it causes them to leak)
