Pipe Dope&Tape:Is this OK?
For the new install...No one had Megalock sealant, so we bought TFE pipe sealant with PTFE from Grainger. It says it's good for steam...anyone have any experience with it? I also bought Rectorseal, but noticed afterwards it's not good for pipe over 2" and all my piping is 31/2" and 4".
We also bought Loctite Quicktape249 teflon tape(from Grainger) as well as Oatey Blue Megatape 30621(from Home Depot). The former was about 10x the price. Is it that much better or is the Megatape OK for the piping? Thanks for all the help everyone. Hopefully, we won't be shivering too much longer. colleen
