If teflon tape works then it is okay, otherwise use a paste pipe joint compound.

: I have a drain/overflow kit in which the waste shoe leaks. This is a brass to brass junction. I have been able to put two wraps of teflon tape around the fine brass threads, screwed it together, and it seems to be holding. Is this a good long term answer? This is the drain for a new jetted tub, a brand new installation. I tried to return the whole kit, but it was special order with special finishes, plus it has taken me almost six months to get to the tub install. I would really appreciate your opinions.
