how much pipe dope do you need to use to make your water lines secure? * 1
    #725172 - 04/09/14 12:55 PM (2 years, 7 months ago)

Hi, and a question of all of the in house plumbers?

I'm doing some diy plumbing and I need to know how much pipe dope I need to buy?  How far can the pros stretch a whole can of pipe dope?

I don't want to spend too much money on pipe dope, and have excess laying around the house, but I don't want to undershoot it, having not enough dope on your pipes is just as bad, if not worse.  I want to be able to run clean water all throughout my house.

It's safe to say you don't need any more dope

I'm an equal being of no race, or color, a hallucination if you will
Sneaking into the lives of strangers, and letting them fall apart to a new rhythm just to feel better

You use way too many commas.

If you guys don't know what pipe dope is, or have anything constructive to say in a legitimate thread, then stay out of it.

You basically just want to use enough to make sure the threads are sealed (if it's a non-threaded joint/coupler then you should be using a bonding cement). Usually just a thin layer like 1/8" thick all the way around is sufficient, because as you turn the coupler the dope gets pushed into the gaps and should seal it up nice.

Honestly though, I certainly don't want my pipes trying to do their job all doped up. :shrug:

I know what it is. He still uses way too many commas.
