DO NOT USE PLUMBERS PUTTY !!
are the air bubbles still coming from the thread area ? if so you may just have a bad housing , or the wrong housing. I know of alot of people who have bought from filterfast for the complete filter setup and did not have this problem.
Or is the air bubbles at the exit only , usually caused if the filter has air trapped inside or your wine still has CO2 in as it is under vacuum and the filter is aiding the removal of CO2.
What happens when you use just plain water ?
