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.

If you are going to use it, make sure your pvc ends are deburred with a small file to remove and hanging material. Clean the ends thoroughly. Apply primer to both the ends and any internal connectors/couplings etc. used. Let it dry. Apply the same areas with the solvent (glue) and connect your pipe within 10-15 seconds and hold into position for one minute. Let it cure for 24 hours before you run pressure through the connections such as in a pool pump application. Read Less

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.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
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 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. February 10, 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great cement for PVC drain pipes This cement and primer works very well for PVC drain pipes. A pair of channel locks is often required to open the cap on the can of cement. The can of primer and cement each have their own cotton applicator built into their lid to apply the primer and cement to the surfaces to be glued. All surfaces being glued must be clean of loose dirt or debris and must engage together securely through dry fitting them prior to gluing them. The purple primer must be applied to both surfaces being glued as the first step of the solvent weld process to soften the PVC surfaces. Next apply the cement to both surfaces being glued and press and hold the surfaces together for at least a minute. The 8 ounce size is an ideal size for small jobs and for repairs and can be used to cement a lot of PVC pipes and fittings together because it doesn't take a lot of primer and cement to glue each joint or fitting together.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by did what we wanted We have always brought Oakly primer and cement for all of our PVC projects August 6, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lacked Holding Power This might be okay for non-pressurized piping but for pool pump applications, I would not use again. Didn't see to have the holding power and got really clumpy. My pipes leaked afterwards but probably not totally due to this product but partially the couplings used. July 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Preparation is the key I have used Oatey products several times and found them satisfactory. Have also used Hercules primer and pvc cement. When I assemble, the joints don't leak. Sometimes when "professional" HVAC mechanics fit pipes together they leak. Maybe they're in a hurry. The key is preparation. Sandpaper female and male fittings to not only clean, but slightly roughen. (Similar to wire brushing on copper fittings). DON'T BE CHEAP AND SKIP THE PRIMER. This will prepare and clean the joints for a good glue fit. If you want to cut costs, buy a quart of acetone. From my chemical analysis of primer, I believe they're equivalent.. Support the finished pipes with banding iron, wood stud. etc so that the pipes are not under strain to support their own weight. Any questions? enter PVC cement on your browser and watch several video demonstrations. Good luck! April 1, 2015
