How To Seal Plumbing Fittings

Taking care of a boat involves wearing many hats.

Boat Seal

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

When doing boat plumbing, use a sealing compound for threaded connections.  You might be working on bait tanks, seacocks, or washdown systems.  Any one of these can cause issues or worst case, sink your boat!

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.
