Video Transcript for Valterra PTFE Thread Seal Tape Review

Hi there, RV and trailer owners. Today, we're going to be taking a look at Valterra's Thread Tape. Thread tape is used to seal up any pipe fittings, and it's particularly used in your water applications inside your motor home. It can help seal up any of these pipe threads as you tighten them together, because it takes up the gaps that it has in between the imperfections of the metal. That will completely seal them up, so that way when you turn your water on, you have no drips or drops coming out.You will get a large roll of it here. It has about a half inch thick width to it and you get a little bit over 43 feet of tape on here.

And it's pretty easy to apply. You'll just want to simply pull some off and wrap it around your threads and then pull it tight. When wrapping it around the threads, you do want to try to wrap it around the direction that when you thread it on, it's going to be continually tightening the tape around it. Normally, if you're going to be tightening this way, clockwise like that, you'll want to take your tape and wrap it around clockwise, so when you break off that last little piece, it keeps turning it tighter on there.We recently replaced our tank water heater in this trailer here with a tankless unit and we had to add some fittings here for our pressure relief valve and all of these needed to be sealed up properly. We're going to make sure we go on like this, go around and you don't need a ton of thread tape on there.

A couple of reps like this is plenty. We'll just pull it tight, and then we can thread this on.And that completes our look at and Valterra's Thread Tape.

Ask the Experts about this Valterra Accessories and Parts

  • Is Teflon Tape Needed To Seal the Propane Regulator
    Yes, you will want to use some sort of thread sealer like part # LT37482 or pipe tape like part # A05-0265 on the NPT fittings inside of the MB Sturgis Single Stage Propane Regulator part # 108072. As a general rule, all NPT fittings should have some sort of thread sealer or pipe tape on them. Not to confuse you but some supply hoses (propane tank to regulator) like part # 100833-12 come with an inverted flare fitting and if that is the case then you would also need part # 402258-MBS...

  • What Size Fittings Are On the Flow Max RV Kitchen Faucet Part # LC719324
    The male fittings on the end of the Flow Max RV Kitchen Faucet part # LC719324 are 1/2" NPT. In order to seal these threads I recommend using the Valterra PTFE Thread Seal Tape part # A05-0265.

  • RV Drain Trap Replacement for Shower Drain with 2-1/2" Flange and 1-1/2" Pipe
    The Camco RV Drain Trap # CAM37262 comes with a 1-3/4" threaded inlet, so in order to use this drain trap with your 1-1/2" shower drain you need to use pipe tape # A05-0265 to provide a secure connection.

  • Thread Sealant Used with Replacement Female Quick Disconnect for SMI Air Force One # SM99613
    The Replacement Female Quick Disconnect for SMI Air Force One Supplemental Braking System # SM99613 that you referenced uses a thread sealer but does not use a thread locker. You could use the # A05-0265 but do not use the red Loctite you have as it's designed for permanent locking.

  • RV Fresh Water Tank Drain Valve Options
    While we do have drain valves for your RV's fresh water tank, you do need to have access to the tank in order to install them; unfortunately there isn't an option for a valve that can be installed without some type of access. If you can find a way to do so, there are two options, depending on your tank's outlet fittings: - 3/8" or 1/2" Barb: Valterra Universal Barbed Drain Valve for RVs # A01-2025VP - 3/8" and 1/2" MPT (threaded): Valterra Universal Threaded Drain Valve for RVs #...

  • Plug Needed for Water Lines On Outdoor Sink In Trailer
    The Valterra Pipe Plug part # RF865 is designed for a 3/8" NPT Fitting. If this is what you have then it will work well just don't forget pipe tape part # A05-0265. Unfortunately, I don't know what size water lines are on any one specific trailer but all you would need to do is measure the fitting size. The female fitting should measure around 5/8" diameter for a 3/8" male fittings.

  • Availability of 3 and 4 Long RV Sewer Nipples with 3 MPT End
    Yes, for a 3 inch long RV sewer nipple with 3 inch MPT ends we have the Valterra # T3503 and for a 4 inch length we have the Valterra # T3504. We do also have thread tape # A05-0265 if needed. Both sewer line nipples feature a 3 inch MPT thread at each end. I have attached a couple short video reviews that you can check out as well.

  • What Does Replacement Handle for Waste Valves Fit
    The Replacement Handle for Bladex and Valterra Waste Valves # T1003-6NVP is threaded so as long as you have a Bladex or Valterra waste valve with a rod that has threads this handle will fit those. In regards to fresh water these handles are not designed to fit those valves. You may need a new valve and we have a couple of options, the Valterra Universal Barbed Drain Valve for RVs - 3/8" and 1/2" Barbs # 37204-62415 (Black) or # A01-2025VP (White) as well as the Valterra Universal Threaded...

  • Check Valve for Water Heater with 1/2 Inch Male MPT Fittings
    The best option we have for you is to use the Valterra Check Valve part # P23415LFVP and then go to a local hardware store to look for a 1/2" to 5/8" adapter as we do not carry a check valve with both 1/2" MPT and 5/8" MPT fittings. These are pretty common through so I don't think you will have any issue finding one. In order to join the fittings together you will also want to use the Valterra PTFE Thread Seal Tape part # A05-0265.

  • Sealing Out Water And Dirt From 2016 Ford F-250 With Factory Pucks
    We don't have anything that promises to be water-tight, however I do have a solution for you that will be as close as it comes. What we have are the Draw-Tite Replacement Puck Plug Covers for Elite and Signature Series Fifth Wheel Rails (Qty 2), # 58199. These are designed to work with the Draw-Tite Puck Service Kit (Qty. 1), # 58253. You would use thread tape like Valterra PTFE Thread Seal Tape - 1/2" Wide x 520" Long, # A05-0265, to seal your threads and then use silicone like the...

    We currently carry the MB Sturgis Vertical 2-Stage Propane Regulator # 108220 which is a 1/4" female NPT inlet, 3/8 female NPT outlet, 2 stage propane regulator. In stage 2 this regulator will reduce pressure to 11" W.C to allow for safe gas flow to your appliances. Be sure to use teflon tape like # A05-0265 to properly seal your NPT fittings.

    Yes, you will want to use some sort of thread sealer like part # LT37482 or pipe tape like part # A05-0265 on the NPT fittings inside of the aluminum propane regulator. As a general rule, all NPT fittings should have some sort of thread sealer or pipe tape on them.

  • Can Extra Ports on Filter Landing of Derale D15749 Relocation Kit Be Used to Install an Oil Cooler
    You certainly can. To install a cooler, you'd just need a cooler such as # D15452, two fittings, part # D98103, some replacement hose like # D15701 and some pipe clamps like # D13008. Remove the plugs, install the fittings, place the cooler where it'll catch air and run the hose. You'll want to use teflon tape like # A05-0265 on the fittings installed into the filter landing.

  • Compatibility of Locktite 569 on Portable Water System
    The Loctite RTV 5699 High-Performance Silicone Gasket Maker - Grey - 2.7-Fl Oz Tube # LT37464 can be used to seal a portable water system. The only thing to consider is the use of the water. If it isn't for potable drinking water, you wouldn't have any issue with this gasket maker. There are number of Loctite options available for potable drinking water but unfortunately we do not carry any of those options. If you are using threaded connections, I recommend using the Valterra PTFE...

  • How to Fix a Leaky Pipe Under a Bathroom Sink
    If the pipe you are referring to has a threaded connection then you will need to remove the fitting, clean the threads, apply a sealant like part # LT37482 or part # A05-0265, and then retorque the fitting as needed. If the pipe you are referring to is made of PVC then you will want to remove it, clean where it slides into the coupler, and then again apply sealant like part # LT37467 before attaching it to the coupler. You will want to allow time for each of the compounds to dry before...

  • Can Loctite Thread Sealant 545 be Used with Potable Water Systems
    Loctite Thread Sealant 545 # LT37482 is not designed for potable water systems and should not be used. There are chemicals in it that can be harmful if ingested. If joining copper pipes I recommend using solder to join non-threaded pieces and thread seal tape such as # A05-0265 on the threads of threaded pieces. Plumbers dope can be used on the plastic PVC-like pipes; available at hardware stores. If the PVC pipes are not threaded you should use primer and the appropriate adhesive for joining...

  • Derale Reducer Bushing Compatibility with Plastic Water Tubing and Compression Fitting
    The Derale 1/2" Male x 3/8" Female Reducer Bushing # D98452 will allow you to use the fitting with thread seal tape # A05-0265 to help with the threading of the bushing as well as the compression fitting you pictured and referenced. The brass fitting will have absolutely no issues with 140 psi pressure you mentioned. This fitting is a short reach as the threading is only through part of the interior so minimal trimming if any will be required for your fit.
