leak at spout thread of brass facet
Posted by Norman W. Turner on June 12, 2002 at 08:42:03:
I have a 50 year old brass facet with a 1/4" of thread at the spout available to connect to my garden hose. I have tried using plumber's tape (pink) but it does not have much to hold on to - only 1/4". The tape tends to tear away as I thread on the new coupling. I've tried a few couplings but leaking still occurs at the threaded union. Are there any remedies short of replacing the facet? Thanks for your help.
