    Blue RTV to seal PS-1000 to seal plate of Whisper Flo pump?

    Rebuilding the pumps today, don't have any home repair type clear silicone caulk. Can I use a small bead of Blue RTV sealant (automotive gasketmaker) to seal the PS-1000 seal to the seal plate?
    It says it is a silicone gasket maker.
    Thanks, Shell

    The blue rtv will be fine. It's actually better than silicone caulking

    Thanks for confiming it's ok to use the RTV.
