    Default Is there a PVC cement which requires no primer?

    I was looking for a PVC 500 double wye combo as you guys suggested. Local big box stores didnt carry it, so I called up Ferguson, specifically asked for that part number and the guy told me he had one on the shelf. Great, I am thinking! Send a friend over to pick it up since he lives down the street and can get before they close. I just picked it up from him and this is what I got.



    The hub on the top is not glued in, but the 1.5" bends are.

    A can of primer is only a couple bucks. You could use a fine grit sandpaper and lightly sand the fittings. Primer is the best bet, just use it let air dry (only takes a half minute) then apply your PVC glue fit the fitting and pipe give a quarter turn as you are pushing the fitting in to help seat it and remove any trapped air in the cement.

    Or are you asking because the fittings are glued in place (besides the bushing) but there is no primer visibleż
