How cold?

Unread postAuthor: PVC Arsenal 17 » Tue Nov 21, 2006 5:49 pm

How cold can it be before I shouldn't solvent-weld pipes? Or does it not matter?

You will be fine, just make sure that you allow the cement to cure for longer.

I don't think it matters how cold it is when you are solvent welding just how cold it is when you are shooting.

Cool, you should make a how-to. Or atleast document the building.

yeah, It should be fine. I glued last week in thirty-somthing degree weather, and was fine (I let it cure for 2-3 days)

I probably will document the building- because I'm too impatient to wait till it's done to post!

It ended up costing almost $250 :shock:

I ordered some from McMaster and some from Sprinkler.com
