WTF did you just say? :?:

If you mean are the ports threaded, then yes, but the valve orifice isn't.

Well, then yes, you are in luck. They have solvent weld sprinkler valves, but why the hell would someone want to use them? If the valve or some other gun part breaks, you're screwed like a 10 dollar hooker.

And it's nice to see someone who takes sarcasm well. ;)

Teflon tape will be much better. I don't think liquid sealant is good for the plastic.

im probably going to sell them out of the box for $15-16 pretty much what you can find them for on any sprinkler website that sells them, i make very little $$ off it. still searching on cheap blowgun prices to modify them however im willing to sell them modified for $17-$18

edit: also, only use the liquid thread sealer if you dont ever plan on taking the threaded piece out, this is because it has some solvent properties to metal which could also harm plastic, it is used on larger pieces of metal pipe because its easier to apply and does provide a better seal. Use teflon tape for all your plastic threaded connections, typically they're smaller and it wont make the plastic threads "stick" and make that funny cracking sound when you tighten it down to seal pressure/unscrew it from its torqued force
