How to Glue/Cement PVC Pipe

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.

Thank you for reading.  Please be sure to like, comment, share, and follow tool-school.com!  Have a great day.
