leaking connections
Posted by Lance on November 16, 2002 at 15:00:52:
I replaced galvanized 1/2" pipe with cpvc when I relocated a shower in my bathroom. All of cpvc connections are fine however, the connection that I made from the galvanized 3-way fitting to the cpvc is leaking. I used a male brass-to-cpvc connector and 3 revolutions of teflon tape. Should I have used some other type of sealant or pipe dope or could I have possibly over tightened? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
