In response to Re: teflon tape joint
Many years ago a study was made on a large irrigation system that had numerous leaks. It was found the more leaks were caused by excessive teflon tape, than anything else. Two wraps was deemed adequate. Any more and the fittings were stressed.

: We have wrapped Teflon tape around plastic threads about 4 revolutions, but the joint still leaks water. Is there any other sealant thai I can use that would make a water tight joint? Thanks
