I wonder if you can give me some advise.

I installed a new bath with Clicker waste. I had two leaks,

1) first leak from the bath trap / clicker waste seal. I fitted a new o-ring and gave it a few more turns seems to be OK.

2) second leak appears to be coming from the backnut/ clicker waste body thread. The seal immediately below the bath appears good, the seal below and above the banjo appears good.

Can I solve this leak by applying a bead of silicone Dow Corning 785, around the thread before I wind up the backnut ?

Thanks

I would use Plumbers Mait (can get B&Q or Plumber's merchants) - wipe around all thread before screwing nut on.

I'm sure the reason why would be appreciated by the OP. Or an idea of what is best.
I was shown to use Plumber's Mait by a plumber with over 40 year's experience but am all ears.
Thanks in advance.
