Teflon tape adequate for spout diverter?
 
I have two shower tubs. The tub spouts have popup valves that diverts water to the shower head.

I was planning to use teflon tape for the threads on the pipe I screw the spouts on. But I read it was good to use pipe thread compound.

I am very paranoid about shower leaks now, and I wonder if teflon tape would be adequate seal for the spouts?

You can use tape if you like, wrap clockwise around thread.
