"Making up a garden tap with a wall angle bracket and as one of the previous posters commented, it is near impossible to obtain the correct position of the tap while fully tightening the screw. I tried several layers of ptfe tape, no good. I made up the joint with this product and success, the position is locked in place while giving the apparent seal. Some of you commented, that the sealant was too thick. What I did was to take the top off the bottle then gently squeezing the container, allow some of the gloop to fall into the nozzle, then put it back together using as directed. You cannot have it both ways, it needs to be thick to stay on the threads. I might try gently warming the bottle in water to reduce the viscosity if necessary.."
"I got this for use on solar systems because of its high temperature range, but have used it on every threaded joint because it doesn't shred like tape. I gave it an extreme test when fitting a garden tap. After fitting a wall plate elbow and screwing on the tap it will end up pointing anywhere but straight down. Smooth this paste onto the tap threads and screw it almost fully home until the tap is at the right angle, then wait for the surplus paste to turn clear. Assembled by hand but would need spanners to undo! I agree with the other reviews about the thickness and difficulty getting it out of the container, but stored nozzle down and tap the lid on the floor before starting and it comes out OK. Not suitable for olives / compression joints, just threaded ones."
"This is a great product that has never let me down, the only fault I can find is that the liquid is a little thick and you do have problems getting it to come out, I have found it's best to store it upside down in you tool box for a quicker application."
"These posts are censored as I gave some feedback before,, but did not appear. Basically its ideal for small pipe threads, but not so clever on larger stuff (been using this and others for years, so loads of experience). The secret to getting it out of the bottle is to store upside down, when very empty, tape about a metre of string to it, then swing it around your head to use centrifugal force to get the goo in to the cap :)"
"..used this on the joints of a shower (behind a fake panel), where ptfe tape had failed (twice) previously. Read other comments about putting pot upside down for a while before use (this helped). Silly container, good 'stuff''."
"This product works very well however either my bottle was faulty or it is not quite right. I had to take off the lid and use a small paint brush to get the product out. I would assume this is not quite right as it comes in a squeezeable bottle. so as I said it may have been a faulty bottle. But the product works very well."
"I usually tape my compression joints but decided to try a compound as I thought it would be easy to apply in situ without fully disassembling my prepared pipe run. My local branch didn't have my first choice in stock so I bought this instead.
The instructions were a bit brief and and it was not easy to understand how much to apply.
It was quite difficult to squeeze the contents out of the tube - It comes out thick and blue and seems to turn clear when set. I was a bit generous with it and spread it with my finger. It seems to seal OK.
I wasn't overly impressed and will look for an alternative."
"I wish I had read the other two reviews before buying this. Getting the stuff out of the dispenser is difficult, there is a lot of empty space in the bottle and not much gunk so when you squeeze the bottle the air just blows through the gunk rather than dispensing it. I don't know if it works or not yet, I have just applied it, and because the instructions are so poor - really poor - I don't know how long to let it cure for before I pressurize the system to test."
"I have used various liquid pipe sealants and can only say that this is the worst by far..It seems to be a paste rather than a liquid and is very difficult to dispense from its container..Working time is very short before the product begins to harden..I also found clean up difficult ,having to resort to solvents rather than the usual water or soap and water..Overall very disappointing.."
"Don't even think of using this product. Liquid PTFE ? Structural adhesive would be a better description. No possibility of nipping up joints and virtually impossible to disassemble them if they leak. I had to saw through pipes to remove the fittings.Use a silicone type jointing compound, it seals better and does not require destructive force to disassemble components."
