We very rarely test dwv systems. At most we just dump some water and look for drips. I like to do this as it's going to tell you of there's a leak and there's not much effort involved.

Don't test with air. At most a vacuum test would be ok.
We are doing a 40 apt complex. No testing on the dwv system.

Thanks everyone, I will see if I can get the duck butter or elephant jizz; otherwise I will just use the liquid soap.

If you could find some lithium grease that would work. Don't use a petroleum product as lube on gaskets. A lot of soaps are petroleum based.

I think I have some plumber grease somewhere...I think that is what I used to assemble it originally....

Thanks...Mike
