on any plastic fittings do you use pipe dope or tape? I have always been told not to use pipe dope on plastic as this lubricated the threads and will cause the fitting to go too far and crack.
No it doesn't. It is a soft compound like teflon paste, You must be thinking of something else.Megaloc gets hard as concrete after about a week.

Yup, that's the stuff. Bout 5 yeaars ago I used it for a year. Had trouble with it. And it did get uber hard. Maybe they changed the make up of it since. I love how the can says easy clean up:laughing: I got pants with that crap still on em.No it doesn't. It is a soft compound like teflon paste, You must be thinking of something else.
