In response to Re: Leaking Pipe Nipple
: The pipe nipple on our bathtub faucet keeps leaking. We've tried everything- tape, pipe dope, it just will not make a good seal. the guy at the plumbing desk at the hardware store suggested just packing the area around the pipe with silicone caulking. he said that is what a plumber would do- is this correct? We've tried everything we can think of- any suggestions?

What pipe nipple are you referring to? The spout nipple, the escutcheon nipple or other? LonnythePlumber
