    My point was that the drain port at the main valve has little value. To drain the system, you would open up the closest faucet to the shut off and not bother with the drain port.

    I never meant to suggest using T-tape on a flared joint. NOTHING should be used on a flared gas connection. Neither pipe dope nor T-tape.

    At least you could shut off the water by yourself. In these parts, you would have needed a curb key which I doubt most homeowners would have.

    After everything has been aligned and tightened up top, I usually put a little bit of silicone between the floor and the back of the pedestal to hold it in place.

    I thought p-traps with a union joint weren't allowed under the floor since it would be sealed in or is that just for ABS p-traps?

    Like Jerome says, it's most likely a primer for a near by floor drain. We've done the same thing whenever there's no laundry sink. You should try to re-install it with the new setup.
