Replacing rinse water solenoid valve, basically had to cut it out and re-pipe all because someone used that loctite, not the thread sealant kind. Who ever installes sure was not thinking that it might have to be replaced. The stuff that should be used by loctite is the thread sealant for hot water applications.NOT THREAD LOCKER....

If you hit thread locker with a torch it melts and acts like a lubricant helping you unthread it. I am referring to the red loctite 554 which is refrigerant rated.
