How to glue ABS or PVC pipe
- ABS glue or PVC glue for the proper pipe
- PVC primer if gluing PVC pipe
- Cut the pipe to the proper size with a hack saw. Remember to account for the length of pipe that will go into the fitting.
- Remove burrs and rough edges with a knife from the cut piece.
- Fit all the pieces together without any glue to insure they line up and are the proper length. If all is well then take them back apart.
- If your using PVC(white plastic pipe) you must use primer on the ends of the pipe and inside the fittings.
- Apply glue to the inside of the fitting then to the end of the pipe. Insert the pipe and give a 1\4 turn.
- With a rag wipe off the excess glue.
