You know, working with PVC plumbing pipe and fittings is really hard like juggling. Most people think that way at least. But guess what? It is really not. Here are few tips that I think it really going to help you make sure that your plumbing job is going to be leak-free when you get ready to install it.
Now, the first thing you want to do is make sure you have cut the pipe right. It is really important that the cut is very nice and square and free of burst. Now, the way to do it, you can use a hand saw but you really got to take your time and make sure that the saw is cutting through the pipe straight. If you have access to a power miter box saw, you can be assured that you are going to get a great smooth cut the first time.
Now, what about when you get rid of the glue of the pipe to the fitting. Make sure the pipe is free of all burst. And you can use a razor knife to do that. Just be careful you do not cut yourself. Once it is free of burst, wipe it off to make sure it is free of any mud, dirt, or oil. And now, it is time to apply the primer. What primer, what is primer?
You have got to use primer, and what is it? Well, it is almost a water-like liquid. It is made by the same people who make the PVC glues, and it softens the plastic so that the glue really does a good job of welding the pipe to the fitting. As soon as you apply the primer, you can go ahead and apply the glue.
Now, put the glue on both the pipe and the fitting. Push the fitting on to the pipe and twist it about 90 degrees and hold it in position. If you do not hold it, it may jump off. You got to really be careful. Make sure of that and you are going to have leak-free plumbing every time.
