Leaks can be deceiving

Well I don't want to speak too soon. But I believe I found the leak that has been plaguing me. Again it's at the third valve on the manifold. It was actually where the leak had previous been, but I do have a theory. This segment didn't have a hex around it, so to remove it from the valve I had to use my vice grips, likely damaging the thread. This leak didn't even show signs with the soapy water test. But after 10 minutes of laying over the edge of my pool and turning up the pressure a little bit, it made itself visible. About every ten seconds a small bubble would form and float to the top. Bingo, again. And hopefully for the last time. I want to start drinking draft again.

I'll be heading to Lowe's tomorrow to pick up another fitting.
