    Shower trap water seal

    Whilst looking at shower traps i noted reference to the water seal measurement.

So its time to replace, the new seal is straight and flat and not conformed at all and...

    Suggestions on how I should correctly seal this value

    What should be a straight forward connection is proving to be something annoyingly different. I have a 1/2 inch compression coupler which I am attaching to a new shower mixer valve (cold inlet). The photo doesn't show this but I have applied what I thought was adequate PTFE tape (10 rotations).

    Dribbling into the toilet

    No, not a medical problem - I mean there's a constant slow dribble of water from the cistern into the toilet bowl. There's a slight giveaway ripple, plus I tested it with one of those dye tablets from the water board and the colour came through quite quickly. The toilet is a close-coupled...
