I used plumbers teflon tape on the plastic threading of the Intex SWG and now have a small leak. Actually I've had a leak on two different connections. I'm wondering if it's causing more problems than solving a potential problem - especially when you have to undo the connections to clean the cells with vinegar. Many of the Intex filter videos show folks not using plumbers tape. Does anyone know if it's bad to use plumbers tape on plastic threading? Also beware - don't over-tighten plastic threading.
May have answered my own question so I'm making this posting as a warning to others. Here's the top result on Google: http://www.lascofittings.com/supportcen ... lastic.asp
Anyone think differently?
