pvc/cpvc glue
Posted by Jerry on October 11, 19100 at 01:06:02:
I noticed the "hot" blue pvc cement I used for cementing cpvc fittings does not speicifcally allow nor prohibit it's use on cpvc pipes (the label says "for use on all PVC products", which may or may not mean including cpvc; probably not though).

Bottom line, if I previously used this glue to make some cpvc connections, should I be concerned ? (yes, purple primer was used first) Would a plumbing inspection/inspector likely pay attention to the color of cement used?

Have any tests/studies determined the long term effects of using pvc glue on cpvc pipe?
