I would absolutely not recommend this product, (rain-r-shine blue PVC cement). This weekend I spent hours applying this sealer. The surfaces were primed properly and the cure time of 2 hours that is listed on the can was adhered to (waited 3 hours). And it was not raining outside and was 90 degrees. I had 4 leaks out of about 30 connections, and leaks took some time to actually appear. And of course where I had the leaks forced me to redo more than half of the connections and waste a lot of connectors (far more lost $ than what the can of glue cost). I have used the regular cement for years and never had a single leak the last 20 years. This product I would absolutely not recommend and hope home depot will refund dollars for this product. Will never use it again (ever again), and recommend other not learn from my lessons.

I have been using Oatey and Christy's Rain or Shine, Hot blue cement for over 17 years on a large piece of property I own that is fully irrigated. I also use it for my potable water lines in the home. I have NEVER had what other reviewers call a BLOW OUT, or ANY failure on the glues part. What I am assuming, is that these individuals do not know how to prep the PVC BEFORE applying the glue: YOU MUST SAND PAPER (ROUGH UP) the mating surfaces of the pipe to give the glue something to hold on/grip to. What this does, is EXACTLY the same thing as a primer would, which is partially melt the PVC. You can equate this to using a primer BEFORE you shoot auto paint; IF YOU DON'T PRIME/PREP, the application will probably fail. Also, on older (brittle) PVC pipe, you need to sand through most of the yellowing and get down to the base material. I personally give the glue about two hours to set up, but you can get by with less. Two hour lap shear is 250psi; from this two hour point, lap shear just goes up, and tops out at 900psi, so if someone tells you it takes 24 hours to fully set up, THEY ARE WRONG!

IF, you know what you are doing and read the label this adhesive will work for you. I have used Oatey products for years and have never been dissatisfied. Rain or shine will adhere in wet conditions. I highly recommend it for any PVC pipe application. If it works under wet conditions then it can be trusted for normal conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rain-R-Shine - strong hold in no time wet or dry I could not completely shut the water down, thus water was slowly oozing out of the pvc pipe. I could for a minute plunge out the water, but it would resurface back into the pvc pipe. I worked quickly after emptying the water, and this cement held strong. You have to hold the two pieces together for 10-15 seconds, and the cement held even after getting wet quickly. I originally tried it with the clear cement, that did not work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good only if wet Conditions I only use this glue under 2 circumstances, there is some light rain or drizzle, or if there is a chance some water will flow onto the joint inside (not under pressure) while it is curing. It does not tend to coat the pipe before assembly as readily as regular grey pvc glue. Use the regular cement if at all possible but never if any water present, joint will fail.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Perhaps not for PVC Sch 30 Drainage Pipes??? Used this for a footer drain w/ all pvc piping I used oatley primer and than this and fittings are merely glued together by a thin rather flaky layer? I know this because a few fittings popped loose while gently working with connections downstream. There's no "welding". I liked the idea of this for the quick dry times, but it was a waste of time going back to re-glue loose fittings. I had clean pipe, primed, and than a normal layer of glue. Pipes should be able to withstand gentle flexing without coming loose!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid of at all possible This cement is much thicker then regular PVC cement. It does not coat as well but also, it does not hold as well. I used it in an area that was a little wet and the seal blew out twice. I dried off the area and waited. I then used regular cement and it held just fine. Also, the cure time on this glue is 24 hours as opposed to about 30 minutes with regular glue. Glue should be placed on dry PVC pipe anyway (otherwise the primer won't stick either). The PVC pipe is then glued so the cemented areas will remain dry. I can't see much use for this type of glue.
