No, as long as you dry the fittings and sockets before gluing them.

Don't listen to what bikingprop said. He's wrong. PVC pipe is also used for water and pressure too, so i'm not sure what you're on about. :roll:

It depends what type of ABS you have if it's meant for pressure or not.
Which i'm sure you're aware of. If you don't have pressure rated ABS, I hope you're building a combustion.

Oh and also ABS is actually a better spudding material bikingpro. It's more heat resistant, doesn't shrapnel, light and more shock proof. It's just harder to find pressure rated ABS, that's why it's not used for pneumatic.

I don't recommend spray and prays for children because they are more dangerous then metered propane combustions. You frequently have misfires and failures that entice people to put their body parts (face, hands, arms, ect..) in dangerous areas. There is also the possibility of harm due to fire frequently presented by the liquid fuels that spray and prays use.

No dude if you get those water pipes wet, they are sure to fail, those water pipes aren't meant to get wet or their structural integrity is compromised
