Teflon Tape
Posted by Rick Polley on March 27, 1998 at 01:44:55:
Just a stupid question for which no one seems to have the answer....
When wrapping threaded pipe with Teflon Tape...How much?

I usually go around 2 times at the start and overlap 1/2 the tapes width the rest of the way down.
I have noticed others doing it in other ways...Like one wrap at the start and thats it ! And others that wrap it around 3 or more times... Is there a BEST way?
I also make it as tight as I can but have seen loose wraps while others do it. When ever I ask whats the correct way...No one seems to know anything except the way THEY do it. Scary !

Thanks again for your input.
