I have experienced similar problems with threads leaking. Have been having good luck by applying a small amount of rectorseal tru blu then wrapping on some thread tape and then coating both the male and female threads with the tru blu and then assembling and wiping off any excess goop.
I think the putting the sealant on the female thread and making sure it is applied into the threads all the way around is the trick to getting a good seal. Especially on the 1.5 inch and larger.

Is it in a little can with a brush, similar to what anti-seize comes in and a pale minty green?

Lookup PLS2, store by the house is getting a new diesel pump and that’s what they were using on the plumbing. I’m sure that stuff has to be pretty good to pass all their regulations. With all these good suggestions and brands I hadn’t heard of So far I’ve found everything from fuel pump chemicals to boat sealants. If I could just find what they use to seal up the crappers pipes on an A380 airbus I think I’d be leak free for life.

We have tried almost everything, the best I have found is a couple wraps of Teflon tape(pink or yellow, not white) then just regular clear, window silicone. Let it set up for a day and it seems to be good.
