    I am not sure how to respond to that in an allowed BOIRD humor respectful way.

    All BOIRD can say is: Enjoy Mr. Murphy.

    I got tape: But trying to put a threaded 3/4inch PVC adapter (Other side 3/4 sch 40) into a metal valve been on a tank forever. I could maybe do Teflon: BUT 1st gotta find another adapter as all the stores are sold out of everything and there is nothing left in stores of anything household sizes.

    SO the 64K question is: IS it:

    1) Use teflon instead of dope
    2) Try dope again
    3) Put piece in w/o ne thing on it

    FYI: BOIRD friggin HATES Plumbing.

    Why do plumbers and therapists make so much money?

    Teflon tape will allow pvc pipe to leak.
    Try the purple pvc cement, or assemble it dry and wrap the connection with self-sealing plumbers tape.

    T Bird if you need fittings let me know I can pick some up here and mail them to you !



    Teflon Tape is fine and you can also pipe dope it over the tape !, I never had issues with Tape and PVC, Just be careful when you tighten it up,as tape is slipery and you can over tighten and strip the plastic threads


    Afternoon, High 30s today about 4" snow last night ! Everything is melting nicely :) My metal roof is spotless lol

    Teflon tape does not allow anything to leak. Too many turns of teflon tape will allow water to pass between the layers of teflon tape. Pipe thread compound on the first three male threads should provide the lubrication and filling requirements to seal a joint, but make sure your compound is intended for the product you're using, whether for water, petroleum or whatever. Teflon tape: three turns, max, and make sure you're going in the right direction. If the tape bunches up as you start to thread the parts together, you did it backwards.
