Gas Odor/ Pipe Dope

Glad we could help. Should any other problems with nearly anything around the house, there are dozens of folks with experise in various trades here & willing to help.

Please check all of the fittings with a solution of soapy water or gas leak detector fluid (available at any plumbing supply & most home centers).

Just for future reference: There are pipe dopes available without teflon. Some examples are: RectorSeal #5, Permatex (Locktite Corp.), & Gasoila-NT.

Pipe Dope

RectorSeal should be available at a plumbing supply house. There is another very similar called Harvey Seal, I believe. You can get Permatex (#2) in a tube at nearly any auto parts place. One note of caution with Permatex: It is nasty stuff. Wear plastic or rubber gloves. If you get it on you, about the easiest way to get it off is with alcohol. Soap & water won't touch it.

It may vary by market for Home Depot, Our store has the Harvey stuff or the other with tuflon.
