How do I use the product?

Asked by: Hoho
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product. Read Carefully! I do plumbing and HVAC professionally so I use this stuff roughly 6 days a week (including weekend projects). There is no "trick" to using this stuff. There's 1 right way and everything else is the wrong way. INSTRUCTIONS: Use the purple primer on BOTH ends to be glued, this means the joint/coupling and the pipe. Then quickly use the glue on BOTH the joint/coupling and the pipe. I said 'quickly' in the previous sentence because the primer dries in about 5-10 seconds. Drying is bad. Both the primer and glue need to be liquid for a proper solvent weld. Glue dries in about 5 seconds so hold the joint/coupling on the pipe very tight until it doesn't move anymore. If you don't do this the pipe will push its self out. Finished. If the lid of the glue bottle sticks, hit is with a set of channel locks or a wrench. The glue makes the lid stick but it is impossible for it to create a solvent weld on metal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent I've used a lot of this stuff - primer and cement. First, use channel lock pliers or a pipe wrench to open it the first time. After that, it's easy to open even after hand tightening it. The first time I used the primer I realized its value - it really does clean old pipe that's in the ground and it makes assembly of old or new pipe much easier. The cement sets in about ten seconds - I hold the pieces together for a ten count or they tend to separate. Prime it, glue it and it will stay together forever. The pipe will break long before the joint will fail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from always carry channel-lock type pliers Purple solvent cleans well - obvious that cleaning process was done. NEW Glue works fine. Cans often require use of Channel Lock type (or similar) pliers to unscrew lid - partly because you should reclose VERY tightly. Not sure of options here - glue gels to unusability after a while, even with lid sealed really tight. Solvent stays usable forever, but evaporates fast if you don't seal the can tightly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best way to do the job rite! Primer & Glue in one handy kit. I don't do this for a trade BUT I have more than my share of experience with it. Speed is key. Start with clean, dry pipes. Primer then glue & work FAST! Don't more the joints while it dries; only a few seconds. Have not had a pipe leak - EVER.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!
