Need a little info - pipe tape - what does it look like?
Advertisements [?]
Doing a small shower head change in the bathroom. Need some pipe tape. Dug through a box of misc. & sundry of things - you know the box and think I've found the necessary pipe tape for the job. Except it doesn't look like I thought it would.

The roll of tape has no markings on it at all. Just plain thin white tape, waxy coating on outside with a sticky reverse side. For some reason I thought pipe tape was a thin, white felty/material-like substance that isn't sticky. Just stuff to wind around the pipe to aid in sealing before joining the two pipes.

I'm sure I've got pipe tape around here, just not for sure if I have found it or not. Anybody?
