Nipples and Elbows

After putting together the new 1" black gas pipe to feed the 199000 BTU water heater, I pressure tested and it held for two days - then the gauge dropped - I spent an entire day fixing leaks, and inevitably causing new ones.

The gauge on the right should read 10 pounds for 15 minutes... it hasn't yet, but it is such a slow leak that it stops at just below 2 pounds every time. I will have this sorted out this week.
