Artistram3d1: Thanks for mentioning how to apply the teflon tape in a clockwise fashion.
I never knew that before. This video will help me greatly at home. Thank
VideoJoeKnows: @cbfall "Joe's" going to make a plumber out of you yet lol! Thanks for
sending in your comments. Keep watching as the more you watch.....the more
you learn. :0
DAZUPYOU: Very good tips i like it a lot thanks :):)
Linda P: lolol thanks for the video! I have to fix a leak in an old pipe that goes
out to my outside spigot and am glad I watched this. I prob would have
applied it the wrong way.I wonder if you got paid for the number of times
you said "Teflon Tape." It was pretty funny!
VideoJoeKnows: Good job. Next time you're at the hardware store, you might want to pick up
a roll....for future use. It's not very expensive & good to have around.
Thanks for your response! Joe :0
VideoJoeKnows: Ooooooppppssss. Had no idea that I said teflon tape that much. But at least
I got 2 results from it.....I showed you which direction to apply.....& I
made you laugh....such a bonus! Joe :0
Mike Threet: I used the teflon tape that came with a shower head I bought earlier.
VideoJoeKnows: @die2self777 So glad you were able to find my channel! Always happy to help
out. Thanks for commenting. Anytime you have a howto/DIY question, let me
know. I'm here to help you with your projects. Joe :0
VideoJoeKnows: @greenbutterfly101 Hopefully the teflon tape will do the trick for you. If
not....it might be something else that is causing your leak, like a cracked
pipe or cracked threads, etc.. Let me know how it comes out. Thanks again
for continuing to view my videos! Joe :0
VideoJoeKnows: @TheJourneymanShow I've had plastic trap nuts leak before, without using
teflon tape....brand new ones even. Every time I've used teflon tape, I
have not had a leak so I figure I would continue using the tape, especially
if the arm is coming out at a very slight angle or more of an angle like I
was dealing with on this video. It was easier to fix with the teflon tape
rather than going to the store & picking up more parts. Your comments do
make sense though. Thanks for sharing! Joe :0
Peter Peerapun: Thanks bro! U saved my home from a flood! Wife n I thank u. Noah
VideoJoeKnows: @argco1 Thanks for the tip! Joe :0
Kip Lafferty: Excellent tip Joe. I always use teflon tape myself.
VideoJoeKnows: @DAZUPYOU Thanks for your comments. Glad to hear you like the "tip" about
how to save yourself a little dough with "joe" lol! :0
sgbigsby1989: ok im not being cheeky, but if your trap is leaking it could be that the
washer is shot or that the nut isnt tightened far enough. the mechanics of
that type of joint is that the rubber washer gets pushed down into the
grove and bulges up, this jams between the inside wall of the fitting and
the outside wall of the pipe making a water tight seal. the threads don't
have anything to do with it. ptfe tape is for olives and threaded radiator

DAZUPYOU: You are welcome it wos very good to know :):)
VideoJoeKnows: @kipper122670 Glad to hear you use teflon tape for your plumbing projects.
Keep it up. :0
greenbutterfly101: This is the first I heard of this tape! Thanx joe you're great.
TheJourneymanShow: Compression type joints like the one on the p-trap don't need teflon tape.
The threads aren't designed to make the seal, the washer on the trap arm
and the concave shape of the trap adapter are designed to make the seal.
The bulk of the teflon poses more of a risk of breaking the nut on the trap
arm than tightening it down. How do you fix it? Buy a new inch and half
trap washer for about 10 cents.
Mike Threet: Thanks Video Joe. I will try it tomorrow. I think this will work for me. I
will let you know. God bless buddy.
VideoJoeKnows: Cool! I knew you could do it!......Mr Plumber :0
Mike Threet: I just checked the cabinet under the sink. Dry and a bone. Thanks for your
VideoJoeKnows: @plastique45 It always seems tight working under a bathroom sink. Make sure
to remove all items under sink & also remove the cabinet doors. This will
give you additional room. Now you're ready. Joe :0
1McMurdoSilver: What kind of tape is that again?
VideoJoeKnows: @Alexandersonson It's not my house. I was helping out a neighbor on
repairing a leak. Thanks for taking time out to check out "joe"!! :0
VideoJoeKnows: @sgbigsby1989 You're right, you shouldn't have to use teflon tape. If the
rubber bushing is worn, or if the nylon ring is worn &/or if the plastic
threads are worn on your trap piece or the plastic nut, it can cause a leak
which teflon tape seems to fix about everytime. It would always be best to
replace worn parts with new of course, but it seems that we don't live in a
perfect world. That's when teflon tape comes in handy...you know until we
get the new parts! Thanks for commenting. Joe :0
