    Thread Compound?

    What kind of thread compound do you recommend for PVC threaded connections to pumps?

    Thanks for your thoughts,

    I'm using master plumber with PTFE, but most brands should work provided the label approves use on pvc etc.

    I've used Master Plumber and Oatey Great White. Just make sure the container says it's safe on plastic threads.
