Pipe sealant that makes it hard to get pipes apart
Back in my younger days, we used a pipe sealant that dried hard. It made pipes hard to get apart, but man, they didn’t leak or slip.
Now all I see are sealants that are designed to make it easy to get pipes apart.
I’m working on plumbing a regulator and water separator on a new compressor and tight pipe joints are on my mind because on my old compressor, I could never get the joints to stay tight. They’d always work loose from connecting and disconnecting hoses and it drove me nuts.
On the new compressor, I’ve noticed a red sealant on the pipe connections that looks like the stuff we used to use. Does anyone know what that is?
I’m using locktite, but I know that’s not really made for plumbing.
