The idea of pipe dope being blown out follows what I was saying in my last post. Are those saying it won't work on high pressure aware of all the places where it is used? It all gets back to the way we do things. We can do it right and it works or we can screw it up and blame the materials! I agree with you on using tape as it is much easier to store and for sure it is less mess.
