You are either wrapping the PTFE tape the wrong direction (common) or not tightening fitting enough (also common). Wrap the tape clockwise 3x around as you are looking in to the end of the male fitting. Snug the female PEX adaptor up tight.
stupid question. is their an arrow on that valve? or some kind of shower/ hot/ cold/ tub indicator ? is the valve ON and the shower head pluged ?
So I reinstalled the shower valve. I don't think that I had put enough plumbers tape on the threads the first time. I put more tape, and tightened the stop as tight as I could. It's not leaking any more. However, I have Sharkbite slipball valves on both the hot and cold water lines that run up to this bathroom only. I left the valves open so the water was on all night, and I could test for leaks. When I took a shower in the other bath (master bath), the water wasn't as hot. Neither was it as hot in the master bathroom faucet, or kitchen faucet. I checked the crawlspace this morning for leaks, and there were none; neither was the water heater leaking. When I shut the water off from the Sharkbite valves, the water at the faucet in the master bath, and kitchen got hot again. I'm confused as to why the water isn't as hot when I open the shutoff valves. What is causing this, and what can I do about it?
