Installing Water Heater Elements


I removed my water heater elements to descale them as part of regular maintenance. When reinstalling the elements, does anyone have a recommendation on whether I should put some teflon thread compound or something similar on the threads? I do have new gaskets for each element.

Thanks!.

None needed the gasket seals them.
