In response to Re: pipe thread tape vs. sealant?
: What do plumbers use these days to seal pipe threads -- something like RectorSeal T Plus 2 pipe thread sealant or the traditional pipe thread tape? Any advantages to the liquid sealant?

Reply:
Plumbers use different techniques for different applications. Some will even say you do not need thread sealant of any type because of the tapered threads, which is nonsense.
I like to play it safe and assemble the joint once with no leaks, I use the appropriate teflon tape and RectorSeal #5 on almost all threaded connections and rarely if ever have a leak.
