ditto on the brass, but take it one step further and solder it on

Why not just use brass? To answer your question, yes you can use it. To make the Teflon tape worthwhile, make sure you go against the thread, not with it.

Sorry, I meant 316 stainless steel , not slip X slip.
So, can I use a stainless steel ball valve threaded onto 1" mpt copper fitting with teflon tape?

By saying S/S do you mean slip x slip?

No need for teflon tape on a solvent weld application. ????

S/S ball valve question

Can I use a 1" S/S ball valve with teflon tape as a shut off when I cut into my 1" copper line to feed my sprinkler system.
