Shrub heads

I recently installed a few new shrub heads and replaced the included 15' radius nozzles with suitable rain bird nozzles. Problem is, they have small leaks despite any amount of tightening.

Each installed nozzle varies where the leak is but when I tried tightening things down, I noticed two problem spots - where the nozzle screws into the head and again where the riser connects. On other heads all I could see was a small stream of water going down the riser pipe when it was turned on.

Did you use a thread sealant when you installed them?
