I have a new integrated shower installed with tiles going over the top of the containing wall in the next few days. When it is all complete, I need to screw the shower fixings into the sockets. One of the new shower fittings is plastic and the socket is brass - my question is which thread locker to use?
With the shape of the socket, I cannot guarantee that I will be able to screw it in really tight, so I really need to work out which thread locker to use instead of PTFE. I've done some research and it seems the usual Loctite will happily do metal-metal, and some people have suggested using plain old superglue for the metal-plastic thread, but I've also read that it doesn't do well with water over time?
