Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by did what we wanted We have always brought Oakly primer and cement for all of our PVC projects August 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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. June 18, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. November 20, 2013
