I apologize for my posts being somewhat PVC-centric lately, the stuff is just so cheap and versatile so it is hard to stay away from sometimes. I am not attempting to insult anyone’s intelligence, but I wanted to post a quick video of how to properly join PVC pipe and fittings together using PVC primer and cement.
Step 1 – Check the fit of the components to be joined.
Step 2 – Prime/Prep/Clean areas to be joined.
Step 3 – Apply cement to the inside of both components being joined.
Step 4 – Insert pipe into fitting and hold in place for about 5 seconds so that the cement/glue does not force pipe out of fitting.
Step 5 – Allow 15 minutes cure time for handling and about 2 hours before putting the pipe into service.
Here is a video of the same process pictured above.
PVC cement/primer combo packs can be purchased on amazon for under $10 as shown in the following link. Oatey PVC cement and primer pack.
