304 Stainless steel fitting are ideal for
potable water, underground and irrigation systems, agricultural
applications such as barns or anywhere high corrosion resistance is an
asset. Installing SS fitting requires the use of quality pipe joint
compound or PTFE tape formulated specifically for stainless
applications. Failure to do so results in ruining the fitting due to
thread galling, and the inability to create a water tight joint. For a
leak solution use Plumb-eeze pipe joint compound.
