Sealing 3" Rodding access Threaded connections


Hi, just trying to find out what method you use to seal 3" rodding access threaded connections (with square end) within a drain set up, not sure if PTFE tape is ok or not......

Ones I have looked at seam to be a threading compound, I was just concerned that if a compound was the correct method would this be really hard to undo?

Many thanks!

I SEE YOU! PTFE tape or any plumber's pipe dope is adequate just so long as it is non-hardening.
