Weekend Plumbing Surprise

Active 2 Replies 194 Views 2018-06-30 09:21:45 Plumbing

So, my P-trap tubular fell off the kitchen sink just now. Breaking it apart to clean it up and it looks like someone used pipe dope on the threads?


I thought these weren't supposed to get anything at all, but I do know a couple of plumbers that like to use a little bit of silicone on the threads.  

I'm going to patch this together for the weekend, and call a real plumber on Monday, but just wondered what the general opinion was for sealing the threads on tubular?

I think some guys do it so they don't shake loose over time, which they often do, esp. with a garbage disposer.
