How to Seal Plumbing Fittings

Boat SealTaking care of a boat involves wearing many hats.

Ensuring that every seal is done right helps make your boat seaworthy and safe.

When doing boat plumbing, use a sealing compound for threaded connections.

I use Leak Lock or similar products to ensure a good, lasting seal. It is removable but makes a firm connection.

Give it an hour or so to set up before putting water pressure on it.

Oh and pull up your pants, you’re giving plumbers a bad rap.

Capt. Scott Goodwin started fishing in the lakes of Kentucky where he grew up. A move to Florida, however, brought him into a whole new realm of fishing. After receiving a bachelor's degree in biology from Eckerd College, he decided that he liked catching fish more than studying them and thus began his career as a captain. Scott began working as a mate on a charter boat and worked his way up to captain. He has been fortunate to fish in some of the top locations on the globe, including Florida, Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico and the Bahamas. Scott has learned from some of the best captains in the sport and has more than 27 years experience as a professional fisherman. He openly shares his knowledge and fishing tips on BD. Scott is now the editor of BDOutdoors.
