Recently installed a towel rail, and had a lot of problems getting a seal on the valve tail where it screws into the rail. Initially I was using normal PTFE tape which failed even with 20 turns of it. Then tried gas tape which also weeped. Thought I had fixed the problem using LSX on its own, but after 2 weeks the joint is weeping again.
Any recommendations for getting a good seal on what seems to be a very sloppy screw thread?
Don't think it cross threaded - it screwed in very (too) easily. The valve itself is very good quality and looks to be accurately machined. I suspect the thread in the radiator is at fault. But it must be possible to resolve rather than going down the route of using the warranty?
