yes, teflon tape isnt like a glue, you wrap the tape around the threads.

I would think teflon tape would wear off rather fast if being used on a cleanout for a aersol combustion. You shouldnt be losing that much pressure via the threads. I would speculate either your threads are jacked or your tighting enough. In the case of lose tightening, use a strap wrench or pipe wrench.

Yes it holds up, but when you unscrew and screw it back on/off it tares the tape up.

There shouldn't be that much leakage in a combustion around the threads to the point where you should need to tape it up.
