A few quick words on teflon tape -

This stuff is recommended by the manufacturer for use on fuel lines using their fuel line componets (elbows and barbs, etc). It works really well for that, and about any other use where you need an airtight seal between threaded fittings.

However, It should be noted that the tape needs to applied correctly. This means applying tape in the correct direction, as well as using the correct amount. There is a such thing as too much of a good thing. While this may not be important in water applications, it IS important in fuel applications where a piece of teflon tape breaking loose could lead to fuel system failure, and possibly severe engine damage.

For direction, you basically want to wrap the tape in such a way that the act of threading the two pieces together doesn't tend to unwrap the tape. For standard threads (which most everything is) - if you are looking directly into the male fitting (the fitting to be wrapped) you want to wrap in a clockwise direction.

Also, if you have to use more than about 1.5 to 2 wraps of the tape, something else is wrong (possibly damaged threads or something). Furthermore, if using the stuff on a fuel application, don't wrap the last few of threads of the fitting, as you don't want any loose tape sticking out to possibly break loose and mess stuff up.

Hope this helps someone out there.

There isn't really much to say about teflon tape. I haven't found 1 I didn't like. But, for the sake of amazon reviews I'll put in my two cents.

Great teflon tape. Got the job done when I was installing my new shower head.

No leaks = 5 stars

Good gasket tape and seals like it should, but for those who buy this along with the showerheads and extention pipes, know that most come with Teflon tape already. I could have easily gone without buying this in my case.

I just needed some of this to install a shower head. It works and is not some big ordeal. Wrap a few wraps, cut it or tear it, screw on shower head by hand, done.

Works great and is incredibly easy to use. make sure that you do not skimp on applying it. make sure it's thick enough and flush on the threads or you will have leakage that can't be attributed to the tape.

Did it's job! I didn't even know this kind of stuff existed until I looked at what other people purchased with their shower heads. Incredibly handy feature! Some people just know what they need with their new tools, and I don't mind taking their advice :)!

I bought some of this tape when I needed to change my bathroom faucet. It was my first time as an adult messing with teflon tape and I didn't think much of how great it was until, one day, I used the included cheapo teflon tape to install a shower head. The stuff was impossible to manage and the water sprayed everywhere anyway! So I got on here and ordered more Mr. Gasket (I couldn't find my other roll) and the second attempt at installing my shower head was smooth sailing, with no leaks. Fantastic stuff.

For the price they charge on Amazon, you can get about five rolls of the stuff. Other than the price though it works really well and I would recommend it for any plumbing remodeling (I used it to change my shower fixtures and it worked really well).
