    Pool union o rings and strainer basket housing o rings

    New here,been reading a lot,but not sure on this product. I see where I can use plumbers grease on these o rings,but the product I have by Moen says not to use on plastic or rubber?? It is simply called plumbers grease from HomeDepot here in Canada. Any help appreciated TY

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    You want to use a silicone grease/lubricant meant for o-rings. Do not use anything petroleum based (like vasoline).

    Moen plumbers grease is just for brass faucet parts, hence the warning not to use on rubber. Moen also makes silicon grease which is for rubber. Same blue container as Moen Plumbers Grease. Just a different label.
