New PRV leaking at inlet threads

I installed a new 3/4" PRV yesterday but when I turned on the pressure I got a leak at the inlet threads. For both the PEX to inlet and outlet to PEX fittings I used tape and compound. The nut, or union, on the inlet side that comes with the PRV, I did not. I tightened everything using pliers, it's very snug and difficult to remove because of space. What should I do? https://imgur.com/a/1JdYZgY submitted by /u/LurkingMushroom [link] [comments]
