You will need primer, and the pvc cement (as far as I have seen) that is pressure rated is green. Might be mistaken, dont know if there is a universal colour code, but I've only ever seen green pressure rated weld. All available at the local hardware store.

Solvent welding consists of priming the pipe/fitting and then applying the cement to both, inserting securely then 1/4 twist. The green PVC glue is just the cement. You can use any type of primer as far as I know. The stuff used in burntlake is clear stuff. If you intend to use clear PVC cement, check the label for pressure ratings just to be certain. For me, green is the pressure stuff.

You must always use primer, it a solvent that disolves the pvc so that the parts can be fused together as one piece. I recommend this: http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/solvent-welding-course-recommended-for-all-t3009.html

I don't think we have the green in the US.I know our heavy duty glue is clear and the rain n' shine stuff(for plumbing) is blue.Both work out fine.The blue will handle as much pressure as the pipe.

Ok cool, well i will look at that test when i have time, and can be bothered, so basicly the best thing to do is primer the two parts, then apply a fair it of PVC cement and push them togethor, and twist 1/4?
