Question about Sta Rite Pool & Spa
The Sta-Rite Manual states that additional Teflon tape should be added. Should the fitting be tightened ALL the way in?? Do not want to split the tank body outlet. Thank you. Part number C176-47P1
Too much tape increases diameter of piece entering the hole!
This in due cases, will crack the item the enlarged piece is turning into. You need to be very mindful of the torque required to continue screwing it in. Hand / finger tighten then only 1/4 turn more with a wrench! No more. I usually only put on 4-5 complete wraps of teflon tape. You do not want to crack that Pump Housing.

Teflon gtape comes in several thickness's
I find the pink roll tape the best
normally plastic connections should be firm and do not have to be all the way in unless there is a rubber "o" ring at the base to do the sealing
use plenty of tape
