Answer: 
Yes I believe it is inert when dried. It is used by professional plumbers all the time. If there was an issue the code people wouldn't let them use it.

Answer: 
Prime both joints (female end and male end) by circling the joints 2-4 times with the purple primer. Once primed, apply adhesive to 1 joint (I typically apply adhesive to the female joint) by circling the joint 2-4 items with adhesive. Then, tightly press the joints together and hold for 10 seconds or so.

Answer: 
Swab the pipe on the outside with the purple primer than apply the solvent cement and put the two pieces of pipe together. You want coverage all around so there are no leaks.

Let it cure for 24 hours before you run pressure through the connections such as in a pool pump application. Read Less

Answer: 
Sorry, it is not likely possible to remove a stain from the purple primer from most surfaces.
The manufacturer states in bold letters on the purple primer container label. "HANDLE WITH CARE! WILL STAIN MOST MATERIALS AND SURFACES."
The purple primer contains acetone and other strong solvents that are not possible to remove from vinyl flooring without destroying vinyl flooring.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Small Repair I had to repair a broken underground pipe. It was pretty easy to use & did the job. I just had to work fast so I could get all the pieces together. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Product good; Brush needs work The primer and cement were great. Stuff is all pretty similar, so no surprise. But after using about a third of each, the brush came unglued off the cap of the primer. So I had to use my hand to dip it and fish it out, etc. Also, cement becomes hard to open after the third or fourth use. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great For Small Jobs I wanted to run a new water line in my house and already had the piping and fittings but my last container of PVC glue and primer had dried up from being kept in the garage too long, exposed to extreme hot and cold. I got this handy pack because it has enough glue and primer to do the job I want and won't leave too much left over to waste. It did the job very well and it was handy to have both glue and primer in one package. August 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PVC Primer & Cement If you have ever joined PVC pipe, you're bored and have nothing else to do than read reviews!!. If you have never cemented PVC, this is good stuff to use to make a permanent weld of your pipe. Read & follow the directions & there should be no problem. This & all PVC cement sets rather quickly, so be ready to get them together. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does what it's supposed to This handy pack is a great deal, price wise, for anyone needing to do some non-pressure PVC repair or installation.... eg this pack is for waste lines not water lines. If you haven't done PVC repair, make sure you use the primer first. This cleans and softens the PVC. Once both joints are primed, use a good amount of glue and then fully press the joints together. Make sure you push the joints fully together to ensure the joints are fully seated. HOld for 10 seconds or so and then release. IF you don't hold for 10 second or so the joints can push themselves apart. Can also be used for PVC hobby builds. March 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Must Have Product I confess I buy this all the time for PVC work. PVC is not just for plumbing. So far I've made a turkey tractor using PVC and a panel to make a rain shed. I've also made small tables for plants and bird cages. This product is great. It sets up hard and holds well. I have dry fitted project before but next thing I know they are coming apart. To make it last I'm now using purple primer and solvent cement to keep the finished product strong. February 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great kit to have around Had to make a new PVC outlet pipe for a new sump pump, and can't complain with the performance of the primer and cement here. Worked exactly as I expected it to. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This glue is good stuff In the middle of my plumbing project temperatures dropped well below freezing. The water in the pipes froze, but not a single joint that I had glued together came apart. This glue and primary holds better than some of the other glues that I have used in the past.
