    Nope.

    The threads are tapered, and if they're tight enough, don't actually require any sealant to seal. But they go tegether better with something on them, and certainly come apart better if teflon has been used!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
