Troy Dowling : I do not comment on YouTube videos, but must do so here. This tutorial is critically important. I am doing a facepalm so I forgot the basics. I have never seen a manual mention this important point. Also great is that you remind us with no arrogance. Thank you tremendously.
Paul Cotter : In my 'jurisdiction' white tape (which is single density) cannot be used for steel water pipes. It needs to be triple density, which is usually red/orange/pink depending on your colour perception - or if you are an interior decorator. Double density is yellow which is the minimum for gas. You can always use a higher density if you wish. Just so people know, black iron / galvanized pipes cannot be used for drinking water. At least not here - Toronto. And finally, the color of the tape is just a dye so inspectors know you have used a sufficiently dense tape. There is no difference in the material, which is PTFE. Teflon is a Du Pont trade name.
There is also Green (Medical) and Silver (stainless steel) which are chemically different. Typically, the people watching YouTube probably will never need those.
The clockwise-end-on is good advice. I never thought of it that way.
fatboyrowing : Thanks for the video. I can always reason it out... but I sometimes hurt my brain in doing so! I’ll remember start at the threads away from me and wind it clockwise (when staring down the barrel)
t friedmann : Beyond the basic direction to wrap tape in the direction the nut (or fixture) will be threaded, a hidden EXTRA tip here is that you wrap BACK to FRONT (IOW, starting on smooth pipe side, and ending at the thread side). I've seen this done by some plumbers, though it is not talked about much. Can you talk about why that is a superior method?
Lancer man : You can also use the Teflon tape holder to go in between he threads which can help hold it to the pipe. This also helps with the first couple of threads.

#7 How to Apply Teflon Tape Correctly

There is actually a right and wrong way to apply Teflon (PTFE) tape and I attempt to show you the right way here.
pete conroy : Brilliant mate. Straight to the point and helped me loads. Thanks!
randy scott : Direction of tape is shown correctly but the tape should start one thread back from beginning of first thread. Apply one and one half to two wraps. If tape overhangs end of fitting it could end up downstream in other components and cause them to not seal or malfunction.
Amanda D : Thanks for this! I’m learning how to do a lot of “guy stuff” LOL bc I can’t afford to remain uneducated being single! LOL anyway this was very helpful! Thanks again!
Noel Gonzalez : Straight forward, informative, and easy!
emily terry : This works!!
I’m 33 years old and 6 months pregnant installing a Hand Held Spray Head Bidet and I did everything right, turned the water mains back on and had a leak.
They give you this Teflon tape but don’t tell you how to use it. So thanks to YouTube and your video !!
I followed your simple instructions and SUCCESS!! No leak!! Thank you so much!!

NickVenture1 : Thank you for this good presentation. And Youtube suggesting this video. I learned something. I also applied Teflon tape on many occasions ignoring 95% of what was explained here.. till now. Not mentionned in this video is the reaction of Teflon tape to tightening-loosening-tightening again. It seems that Teflon tape is not designed for this and that it gets unreliable in such a situation. I was told by plumbers who dislike Teflon tape for this reason and prefer to go for classic hemp or flax instead.Because flax allows the user to screw a pipe in and out again without diminishing the capacity to seal pipes of the flax. We have such situations when something like a water tap must be positioned in a certain angle and readjusted slightly when the last turn is done and it turns out that a turn backwards of the tab is required. By the way I discovered "Locktite" sealing cord which I definitely prefer to this Teflon tape and recommend it because it also allows the parts to be moved in and out without diminishing the sealing effect.
Jonothan Guyness : Hey man I got started as a maintenance technician a couple years ago and I could not believe that your content was free, you're the reason people at work think I'm some kind of plumbing genius and I owe my career to you. Your content is invaluable and you're an absolute saint.
Robert Applegate : BRAVO....I've been an industrial troubleshooter for 50 years. When plumbing is involved, it is very common to find small pieces of tape lodged in control valves, etc. I quickly learned that it was a very bad idea to put tape on the very first thread, and I have been teaching practice to everyone that I have come in contact with. However, you are the first one that i have every encountered on the web that was wise enough to also teach this practice!
Aaa Bbb : Its very rare to find such a thorough and intelligent coverage. I did a 4 year apprenticeship 40 years ago, using lots of thread taped joints, and was an engineer using small pipes for 30 years in the offshore oil industry. New to me are the different types of tape available. The most important thing (you mentioned it) was to leave the first thread bare. That single fact resulted in THREAD TAPE BEING BANNED in offshore and petrochemical pipe applications, because even "trained" technicians couldnt always be trusted to do it, resulting in small fragments floating around and blocking tiny measurement / control orifices, causing shutdowns. Since about 20 years ago they are only allowed to use special jointing fluid instead.
Great site. Keep it up.
VIC Petrishak : Caution , when applying Teflon tape onto fittings that screw into aluminum housings , do not over tighten . The tape puts less resistance on the fitting and mechanics may have a tendency to over torque , cracking an aluminum housing .
