    Many do just as you do for the same reasons you do.

        Rector Seal #5 (For Steel)

        Blue Monster Teflon (Tape and Paste) for the rest.

              Re: pipe dope

              I have never used both (tape and paste)

              I hear of guys that do and if I remember correctly they tape then paste.

              If you wrap your teflon tape in the right direction it will not unwind and will actually cinch to the threads

                Rectorseal #5 for most things

                Teflon tape for smaller threads

                Sometimes I'll teflon the males and Rectorseal the females.

                    I use the same technique but use the edge of the teflon tape reel to start on the beginning of the thread and go around like three times, this pushes the tape well into the treads and avoids the tape being pushed out.

                      Wow! I thought I was one of few who used Blue Monster. Because it's hard to find here. I had to call direct and order. Major suppliers here don't stock it. Use the tape and dope; good stuff from our friends in Australia mate.

                            Has anyone ever spilled a can of the Yellow Rectorseal into a bin in your tool box?

                            What an unbelievable mess.
