To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I don't know if men really care about what brand of tape they use, but I've found out all tape is not all created equal! Being a single mom I ended up doing the jobs that usually are done by “ the man of the house” and worked as a stage hand for many years..I would buy tape based on how many rolls and what's the price and I ended up with some really crappy product. There is a difference and this brand is a good deal, it definitely is a better quality compared others you use less, it's stronger, stays where u put it. It may be a small part of the job u need it for but trial and error teaches u what works best and does a better job. So yep the small details matter and when u use this brand for whatever u do it's just better.
14 November 2021 Regular white PTFE thread tape (the cheap stuff) measures 0.04mm thick. (Very Thin) Mega Tape (Gray Water PTFE tape) from Lowe's measures 0.10mm thick. (Heavy Duty) This tape is advertised to be 0.09mm thick, but it is really 0.08mm thick. That may not sound like a big difference between what it really is compared to what it is advertised to be, but that means it is 11% thinner than advertised. OK, I may be splitting hairs, but if they say it is 0.09mm thick, that is what I expect it to be. Anything less takes away stars.
I ran out of some good Teflon tape I bought a few years ago from the hardware store. I kick myself for not remembering the brand. I was hoping this would be equally good since there were so many good reviews, but NOPE… this teflon tape is VERY THIN compared to what I was using before. It’s SO THIN YOU CAN SEE THROUGH IT!
Had a leak under my kitchen sink that I tried multiple things to fix. Nothing worked. Was going to replace the pipe before trying this tape. Wrapped the whole pipe and it has not leaked since. Couldn’t believe it. Was so impressed brought a second set of tape and wrapped a leaking downspout and it also stopped that leak. This tape is amazing. Try it!
I was looking for something more rigid for a special application, but this is the same as the cheapo tape I’ve been using for years. At least I can use it when I run out of the stuff that costs less than half.
