What type of paste is best for threaded plumbing connections?
It doesn't really matter. The old oil based has worked forever, Teflon paste is a little cleaner. Either one will do the job. I use Teflon tape for most everything anymore. Clean and easy to use. Cheap also.

Does insurance cover a settling concrete foundation if there were multiple plumbing leaks under it in the past?
This could be a complex situation. If the home has been insured with the same insurance company during all of these plumbing leak losses and now the foundation damage it would be wise to report a claim. Expert opinions on the cause of the foundation problem may be required in order to assess coverag…e. Sometimes insurance companies hire the expert to look into it (oftenly to support a denial, unfortunately). // (MORE)
There are lots of ways to join C x C one can use compression unions, C x C unions , couplings, soldering ,brazing mechanical joints, flare x flare .
Answer . If you know how to solder, you could find a copper tubing-to thread conversion fitting at your local home center. simpler yet, just ask for a compression style fitting where all you'll need is a wrench.
Answer . run the main pipe to the house and branch off to diffrent areas,
Answer .

Plumbing is the art and technique of installing pipes, fixtures, and fittings. Answer 2 Plumbing , from the Latin plumbum for lead, is the skilled trade of working with pipes, tubing and plumbing fixtures for drinking water systems and the drainage of waste. A plumber is someone who installs o…r repairs piping systems, plumbing fixtures and equipment such as water heaters. The plumbing industry is a basic and substantial part of every developed economy due to the need for clean water, and proper collection and transport of wastes.  Plumbing also refers to a system of pipes and fixtures installed in a building for the distribution of potable water and the removal of waterborne wastes. Plumbing is usually distinguished from water and sewage systems, in that a plumbing system serves one building, while water and sewage systems serve a group of buildings or a city.(copied from wikipedia) (MORE)
There is a product that is sold at Home improvement stores called "SharkBite". It will allow you to connect Copper,CTS Cpvc and Pex. Here is the link to learn more. Your friend, Matt The Handyman http://www.cashacme.com/prod_literature.php
Absolutely YES and so does gas piping and heating applications . Your looking at it from the wrong end. .
There are actually 27 tapes used in plumbing depending on the application and medium being used
Teflon tape, which is wrapped around the threads, or plumber's putty, which is applied to the threads should be quite effecive at stopping the leak. These can be found at any hardward store, and are inexpensive.
Insurance companies do not cover plumbing pipes, most insurances will only cover geysers as far as geyers are concerned
You can complete City & Guilds levels 1,2 & 3. Three being highest. If you want to gain more knowledge then the next step to take is to expand into commercial and industrial pipework and heating systems - working all the way upto degree and doctorate level in 'Building Services Engineering'.

If the brass threaded nipple is a male end and the PVC side is a female end, wrapping thread tape around the nipple and then screwing it into the female PVC end will provide a secure and watertight connection.
If you want to make clothes out of bacon what type of edible connective material should you use as 'thread'?
One would say that bacon clothes are best bound with real thread.. but that one doesn't see the word edible.. After carefully thinking of the answer..

Any kind of non plastic piping will do (namely copper or galvanised for water and uPVC for Waste). Unless of course this cannot be done due to high theft of metallic piping.
There is NO coupling there is however a nipple or union to prevent electrolytic action from taking place between ferrous and non ferrous metals
There is no universal connection for plumbing, every country is different, some countries use copper, while others use materials such as galvanised, plastic, stainless steel and brass, which all come with their own connecting devices.
\nReal-time applications are best used for isochronous connections. Examples devices include computer streaming a video, a cellular phone making a video call, a CCTV capturing and streaming security footage.
Waste - Vent - water supply . Materials . Copper - Cast Iron - plastics
The types of thread are rayon, polyester, nylon, cotton, metallic, laminate (or flat), and silk threads.
cc means a close coupled ie a toilet pan and cistern which are attached to each other by bolts and a washer cc can also mean copper to copper... ie: sweated / soldered connection.
Red Brass piping schedule 40 with TP copper fittings and brazed joints Ans 2 - PEX piping with brass fittings is far more long lasting and cheaper to install than any copper - ( the above answer could only be from a plumbing company trying to drum up business )
Where the pitable water supply comes into contact with water of questionable quality or source
i would have to say cox... it runs superfast, has great connection speed, it never lets me down
That would depend on the piping material, If I was using a DWV copper system I would use a silver bearing alloy or braze the joint, If I was using a cast iron bell and spigot I would use oakum and caulked joint, If it no hub cast Iron then a mission coupling or mechanical joint would be appropriate …, if it is a Duram system then pipe joint compound is the way to go or Teflon tape or paste PVC needs to be taken apart and use primer and glue (MORE)

A thread may be either right-hand or left-hand. A right-hand thread on an external member advances into an internal thread when turned clockwise; a left-hand thread advances when turned counterclockwise. If a single helical groove is cut or formed on a cylinder, it is called a single-thread screw. S…hould the helix angle be increased sufficiently for a second thread to be cut between the grooves of the first thread, a double thread will be formed on the screw. Double, triple, and even quadruple threads are used whenever a rapid advance is desired, as on valves. Pitch and major diameter designate a thread. Lead is the distance advanced parallel to the axis when the screw is turned one revolution. For a single thread, lead is equal to the pitch; for a double thread, lead is twice the pitch. For a straight thread, the pitch diameter is the diameter of an imaginary coaxial cylinder that would cut the thread forms at a height where the width of the thread and groove would be equal. Thread forms have been developed to satisfy particular requirements. Where strength is required for the transmission of power and motion, a thread having faces that are more nearly perpendicular to the axis is preferred. These threads, with their strong thread sections, transmit power nearly parallel to the axis of the screw.

It's a combination of an inclined plane wrapped around an axle. It can also be called a "screw" if you include the expanded six simple machines.
The debate about which threads is the best for interwoven sweaters is a matter of opinion. In my opinion, a wool sweater is the best because it protects you from the elements.
Alfa Wifi adapters by far offer the best connection. They are very reliable and constructed to really pick up a good connection where ever you set it up.
This is a question with no clear answer; it depends on what you define as "best fit" and the answer can be different depending on the version of the Operating System you are talking about and the application that uses it.
It is spread on the threads of pipe before being screwed into a fitting so that the threads will make a seal. Since pipe threads are not machined to fit together perfectly the paste makes up the difference and is compressed between the grooves on the two halves.
Pthreads is a set of C language programming and is heavily used in high performance computing as well as serial applications. There are several types of threads that are defined in the Pthread library. Some of the common ones include "pthread_attr_t", which is the thread creation attribute.

No - but if you intend on connecting that sink drain to your house, especially where there wasn't a sink drain before you started, probably. The magic word here is "trap". Anytime a trap is involved, a permit is involved. Permits involved inspections. Inspectors hate do-it-your-selfers. Add that a… new drain trap generally requires a vent. A vent goes from the trap to to air above the house. This allows noxious gases from the sewer to go somewhere besides inside your home. Unused bathtub smelling bad? Add a few cups of water to fill the trap. Add a few spoonfuls of vegetable oil to keep trapped water from evaporating as quickly. Or a cup, enough to fill the trap (more a winterizing trick). (MORE)
How do you use Teflon tape for plumbing which way do you wrap it does it go with the thread or is it going in against it?
Wrap tape in direction fitting will screw on. Keep tape back 2 threads when starting to wrap. Wrap tape 2-3 times around threads, keeping tape snug on threads as you wrap. Pull and tear tape when finished wrapping.
I have used PEX pipe for over 12 years and believe it to be the best domestic pipe there is. Way more efficient, reliable and easier to work with than copper.
PEX Plumbing offers PEX - A, PEX - B, and PEX - C tubing. PEX -A is the most expensive out of the three. PEX - B is the most affordable out of the three. Lastly, PEX - C is the cheapest out of the three.
To use a plumb bob to find the correct fixing point, the bob must be suspended from an area above the desired point. Once it has stopped swinging, one can mark their preferred point against the line. This will ensure a straight line.
Installing a cistern to have working plumbing, takes a lot of steps, but is a fairly simple task.

The best way to truly know if you have a plumbing leak below thefoundation is by using electronic leak detection whichrequires specialized equipment . Every slab leak is uniqueand you will have to discuss the unique options that come up withyour Plumber. If you're not sure if you need to have ap…rofessional come out with equipment to search for your leak, do this quick test with your water meter . Here's howto check your water meter : Turn off all water inside and outside your home. Remember to shutoff your evap cooler, your reverse osmosis system, and anyirrigation or sprinkler systems. And, don't use your icemaker forawhile before this test. When you're sure no water is being used inside or outside yourhouse, remove the cover from your water meter and check the dialsfor movement. Most meters have a "leak detector" arrow, which spinsto record the low volume of water use that is common with waterleaks. If this dial is moving, you have a leak! (MORE)
Only if you are prepared to get very wet. -I have done it like that twice when there was no way to turn off the flow. If the pressure is less than 60 psi it's not too difficult - but as I say, very wet. Sharkbite's are a little easier to use under these conditions.
