    Default Shower arm - pipe dope question

    Hello,

    I am replacing a shower arm. Instructions only call for use of tape. I've heard so many say tape + pipe dope. Which pipe dope is recommended? I have some Rectorseal 5. Can this be used with the TEFLON® tape? If not, could use please recommend something that is readily available?

    Sorry, but I'm not sure what the technical name for pipe dope is.

    Thanks for your help.
    Chris
