Braided Line and Valve Conection

I have taken my steel line off of my valve because of some complications that needed to be fixed. Now I am about to put it back on and Im not sure if I should use locktite or tyflon tape, or a combination of the two. Can anyone help me out?


Thanks

Don't combine them.

Loctite will work fine, or teflon tape will work too. I use tape now, but I used loctite when I first started taking the marker apart because it was just what came with it. The loctite can have the advantage because it won't let the line twist and possibly start to leak.

Either way, just make sure the threads are clean before you start and if you use the loctite, give it time to cure before you put pressure to it.

Lowes has it in hardware, with the glue and epoxy. I'd say HD would be almost the same.

Auto stores should sell you some too.
