Slip Joint Nut 101 – Learning about Plumbing!
I like videos that show how things work. Rubber slip washer–good! Thanks!
Thank you for your video, thanks for the advice about using rubber slip washer, I almost always had problems here and there with plastic ones. On my way to get those rubber ones…cheers
I was happy I seemed to install my new drain and checked it for leaks by touching all the areas with tightening lips. Sure enough there was minimal water leaking but this video helped me thank you. I tightened it too much the first time. Tight isn’t better in this case anyways. Lol

Thank you SO much! 52 years on this planet and I've never had to touch plumbing……until now. This video was "exactly" what I needed. Can't begin to thank you enough. Take care!
Lord, save me from compression kitchen drain fittings! I thought all were glued but No! compression fittings consist of a ring nut and plastic ring gasket that supposedly hold together. After resealing the drain sets with plumber's putty, I tackled the pvc drains by first removing the plumbing tape, duct tape, etc. After reading on Utube, I cut one shorter so the line would be more fitter, then set them together but they promptly just fell out. Not happy to think I would have to go buy new rings and nuts, I coaxed the pipe opening up a tiny bit so that it enroached upon the ring,AND THEN screwed down the nut. Seems like I hit upon the secret, and believe me, there is one.
Thank You very much for making my first plumbing repair easy by showing how to position seal correctly.
thanks dude. just wanted to know which way the angle went. kinda sucks I had to buy a slip nut with plastic gasket that's all they had !
Saved me a call to a plumber, thanks so much!!
This was perfect… Thank you
This video helped me figure out what I was doing wrong! I had the gasket facing the wrong way. Thanks!
Saved my bacon this evening. Great to have a visual on how exactly to put a slip joint nut in place — I didn't get it on my own the first time. Thanks for posting it!
Other way to connect "scrolling at the top" at 2:11? Not on my browser, but I'm interested in it. I have a brass version of the PVC stuff you demonstrate, and the old washer is all chewed up.
