What's the best way to seal butt joint leaks? Some of the joints are too small (1\16th ") to effectively caulk. What about grinding a vee into the joint (as welders do for butt joints) and then caulking it? Would this cause more problems?


We normally just run about a 1/4" bead over the butt joint and trowel it out. You could cut a 'v' grove, but it is not necessary.
