Should I use teflon tape when making a brass to brass connection? If I do, will that make a leak?

I Don't Recommend It!

Hello groovy989 and Welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Gas Appliance forum.

On pipe to pipe thread fittings it's okay if done correctly. Done incorrectly a leak may develope.

However, pipe thread compound, plain motor oil or grease work best. I suggest avoiding the use of pipe tape.

Tip:
When using tape, make only a single warp around the threads. More then one wrap and a leak may develope.

Regards & Good Luck
