For virtually any fluid fitting (especially a corrosive like water), I use a liquid thread dope (my can of Rectorseal). My purpose is more of an anti-sieze than a sealer, but, covers both avenues.

A little goes a long ways.

not to jack you thread but hardware store fittings had bigger holes in them than the purpose built ones from Rex or bassett

X2 on the antisieze. But I wouldnt worry too much about sealer. There are weep holes in the bottom of the header tubes that will be spitting out water anyway, so a couple of drops from the fittings wont even be noticed.
