Installing new shower head
Posted by Ralph Emmerich on June 18, 1998 at 17:24:15:
If I want to install a new shower head, and the threaded female part that screws onto the shower arm is plastic, and the shower arm is metal, can I still use teflon tape on the threads of the shower arm to prevent leaks (ie., does it work with plastic?)? How about pipe joint compound? If the connection leaks using teflon tape, is it a good idea to proceed to trying joint compound? Thank you very much.
