How to fix a water tank tap leak?

Where the tap fitting screws into the plastic tank leaks. I've tried a number of things, emptied the tank and used plumbing tape, put silicone gooey stuff around the fitting. What next please.

Re: water tank tap leak

Hello @L123eonora


Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. Thank you so much for joining us and sharing your question about fixing the leak in your water tank. 


Would it be possible for you to post a photo of the tap and the area of the tank where the tap screws on to? This will give our members a better idea of its condition. We can then offer you recommendations on how to repair it. 


We look forward to seeing the photos.
