    There are at least two thicknesses of teflon tape,so be carefull!
    Instead of that tape you better can use Loctite 753, only good plumbers or garage`s use it!
    Absolutily save and removable at any time is only 753 !
    Teflon tape offen leaks when you just turn is a bit back!
    It is vey well usable as a sealant, even without paper seal.

    If you ever want a permanent, absolutely leak proof barb then you can use the paint on plumbing sealant too :toast:
