    Could be the pressure of the weight of the water that could be causing it to leak. More tape should sort that

    Is that the valve which is factor fitted if so it should not leek but if it does on the inside it should be fitted with a washer add silcone to that the the outside put ptfe on it if it does not have a washer and also silcone leave for 24 hours it will never leak again
