Hi mate,

To be honest the connections shouldn't really need any additional sealant etc. if they are tightened up enough

Make sure you use 2 spanners , one to hold the fitting still and the other to tighten the nut. The nut and fitting need a fair bit of torque to get them to seal and this amount of torque is often enough to damage the other end of the fitting,where be it welded or threaded to something and by supporting the fitting you remove this potential for damage
