    Default Cold Weather PVC Cement?

    This week I'm planning on installing a yard drain of 4" diameter, SCH 40 PVC. I want to solvent weld the joints to prevent roots from entering.

    It is going to be in the 10 degree Fahrenheit range. Is there a PVC cement that can be used with GOOD results in this temp.? I see there is a brand at Slowes that claims to work down to 0 degrees F.

    Thanks in Advance!

    Then that is what you should use.
