    We use Taco Threaded flows and use copper male adaptors to connect to system. We have a lot of corrosion and leaks at this fitting. Is the proper installation or is there a particlular piping sealing compond we should be using. Thanks.

    I use a fitting brush and clean the threads of the flo check, I also use teflon tape and pipe dope. No problems with leaks or corrosion.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Same here.
    I always use teflon tape and then a little rectorseal when threading dissimilar metals. Hard water and electrolisis cause corrosion if no teflon is used.
    I hate to see when installers work turns to crap in a matter of months. With leaks everywhere black iron meets copper.
    You're a good man Beenthere.

    Thank You.

    I like to see the joints still looking good years later.

    Like you.
