- Wrap the tapered end of the Adapter (the end without the slot) 4 to 5 times in a clockwise direction with Plumber’s Tape.
- Leave the first thread exposed.
Having troubles with this step?
The Plumber’s Tape keeps unwinding as I try to wrap the Adapter.
Hold the Plumber’s Tape in place on the Adapter with one finger, then begin wrapping in a clockwise direction. After the first full rotation, the Plumber’s Tape will be held into place.
I used up all the Plumber’s Tape, how can I get more?
If you have run out of Plumber’s Tape, you can easily pick some up at your local hardware or plumbing supply store.
What happens if I do not wrap the Adapter in a clockwise direction?
When you wrap the Plumber’s Tape around the adapter in a clockwise direction, the tape will provide a seal when the adapter in screwed into the water outlet. If wrapped in a counterclockwise direction, the Plumber’s Tape will unravel as the adapter threads into the water outlet, with the potential to caused a leak. Please be sure to review the video, how to wrap the adapter.
Do I need to wrap both ends of the Adapter to prevent leaks?
Only the end of the adapter that threads into the water outlet needs to be wrapped. The collar and water inlet at the top of the bracket are designed to work without Plumber’s Tape.
