    I have a 3 way diverter valve that I'm using 22mm 3/4" push fit connectors to connect 22mm pipe to.

    Where are the sealing edges? As a few seem to weep between the valve and the pusfit connector through the thread. Should I just stick some more ptfe tape on or is something else wrong?




    Cheers

    I don't recognise those valves, but looking at the pic, it would seem more tape is required.
    What are you using the valves to control?

    Do 12 to 14 wraps around the thread clockwise
