Just listen to us this time, seriously we've all told you to use PVC glue and primer.

I wouldn't use both epoxy and glue, may counter each other out.

Just go with PVC glue and primer, i've had a fitting blow off because it had paint on the fitting so you have to be really careful when it comes to gluing and priming.

It's perfectly safe, you must be doing something wrong, it's not the primer and glue.

Also check to make sure the primer and glue haven't passed their use-by date.

PVC cement is specifically designed for bonding PVC. It's even provided by the same companies who make the pipe.

It's a no argument situation, imo.

I know, i'm following your directions. ;).

I think you misunderstood me, i'm not using BOTH epoxy and PVC on the same joints.
PVC+PVC=Primer+Glue.

I have used epoxy on my pneumatic, because it is the only PVC glue available in the Netherlands. They just don't have primer and cement available here.

Of course I took great care glueing the PVC together. I lightly sanded all parts and cleaned all joints thoroughly with acetone before applying the glue and putting the pieces together.

To me it is just a different type of glue. When properly applied there should be no problems.
