Compatibility of Locktite 569 on Portable Water System  


Probably Loctite 569 cant be used for portable water system, but would like to confirm. Thanks


Expert Reply:

The Loctite RTV 5699 High-Performance Silicone Gasket Maker - Grey - 2.7-Fl Oz Tube # LT37464 can be used to seal a portable water system. The only thing to consider is the use of the water. If it isn't for potable drinking water, you wouldn't have any issue with this gasket maker.

There are number of Loctite options available for potable drinking water but unfortunately we do not carry any of those options. If you are using threaded connections, I recommend using the Valterra PTFE Thread Seal Tape # A05-0265. This is commonly used to seal pipe threads to ensure the seal and prevent water leaking.
