|In response to Re: Leaking Pipe Nipple|
Real plumbers hate people that "pack the area with silicone". It makes a proper repair very messy and also difficult to remove.
: 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?
