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.
The plumbers tape is pretty much exactly what you would expect from plumbers tape, the important thing is that it works! I recently used it to fix a leaky pipe under my kitchen sink where the slip joint nut wasn’t sealing properly, and I couldn’t find a gasket to fit the pipe. So far, the leak hasn’t reappeared since using the plumbers tape! The tape arrived in a resealable plastic bag for storage when not in use, which is helpful to keep track of the numerous rolls, and keep them safe, clean, and dry. The rolls do have a plastic “cover” to help keep the individual roll safe from dirt, but it probably wouldn’t do much to keep out water. I love that I could get several rolls, so I will always have some nearby, and if I ever need more, I would purchase this tape again. 10/10 would recommend for all your plumbers tape needs!
My husband couldn't find Teflon tape. THIS was a tragedy -- to hear him tell it -- so it will never happen again. There is a roll of Teflon tape in the kitchen "junk" drawer, in the Queen Anne lowboy we have repurposed as a tool chest, on the silver tray where we keep the car keys, and in a drawer in the hall bath. WE. HAVE. TEFLON. TAPE. 10/10 Buy with confidence!
I typically buy this at the hardware store but was just as happy to order it on Amazon and save the trip. This is the same quality and ease of use as any Teflon tape I have ever used. The 4pk (6pk also available) is more than enough for the the tasks I will come across.
I was excited after reading the reviews, as I use quite a bit for sealing vials that I use for shipping ink samples. I use less than 2" per vial, so the pieces are pretty small. Wherever I touch the tape as I'm cutting it or holding it down, it immediately becomes so weak/thin that you can practically see through it. In my photos, the little straight marks where caused by gently trying to hold it down with my fingernail. The next photo shows what happens when you stretch it. I'll keep looking for a higher quality tape.
In an effort to use a Master Airbrush air compressor with my powder coating gun, I realized I had two different sized connections. I found a brass adapter on Amazon, but it was a poor fit and constantly leaking air. It's not a powerful compressor to begin with, and my project was on hold until that problem was fixed.
I didn't fully understand how this worked, but tons of online resources said to use PTFE tape on the threads. I ordered this as a last ditch effort, not confident it would work. I wrapped the male thread on the fitting 3-4 times and it completely sealed the connection. No more leaking air lost around the connections and no more hissing.
I had ordered some Teflon tape online before at it was so thin you could easily see through it and it would tear too easily, I was worried this would be no different but this was great, It seemed like the same stuff you buy at Home depot or Lowes.
Given that the price for four rolls was the same price as a single roll of some brand products, I was concerned it might be cheap and thin. It's not. I've used it on inside threads and outdoors and it works just as well as the namebrand stuff. Seems like I'm always running out of this. I also appreciate that the manufacturer or seller put it in a sealable plastic bag. Makes it easy to keep the extras together and hang them up on your pegboard.
This tape gets super thin when stretched around pipe threads and is difficult to tear off without significant shredding into multiple strands. I measured it as being 2.5 mils thick. I prefer a name brand tape that is 3.5 mils - 4.5 mils thick (should be if it meets MIL-T-27730A or better). Oatey FastTape (Home Depot) works for me (is about 4 mils thick and tears off relatively easily and cleanly) but there are plenty of others to choose from. In my opinion, this one is not a good value even though it is cheap.
