Hi all

one thing that ive found that works as well ,without the stains is Standard
rubbing alcohol as a primer it does a very good job of removing all oils and residue and doesn't leave the lovely purple stain.I hope this helps

take care

i wouldnt use that, it doesnt do the same thing as primer, primer begins to melt the PVC to fuse the fitting with the pipe. you can get clear primer, which works wonders.

The dye that is added to the purple primer is permanent and cannot be removed, it will also stain ceramics, bath tubs tile etc.

It soaks into the pipe, you could paint over it with white paint?

Just use pure acetone as the primer, and you will not have to worry about the unsightly purple stains.

Are you sure acetone would be good for your pipe? I'd think that it would damage/weaken you pipe a bit. If you're really that worried about the color though just paint and/or clear primer it. Just as another side note, it's better to have primer stains everywhere and be sure you have the whole bit primed then to go skimpy and miss a spot.

BC while clear primer can be used in the original construction of a cannon to eliminate stains resulting from the typical purple died primers, that is not the issue at hand. The question was how to remove already existing primer stains. The solution you suggested was rather a preventive maintenance if you will.

Well i have a fool proof way of fixing that.DONT GET PRIMER EVERYWERE!

Or use some sandpaper or a razor blade to remove a fine layer.

An ounce of perscription is worth a pound of cure. Just a furure refferance for anyone out there.

I had to do some rebuilding and cleaned some stains by sanding, didn't take long at all and didn't hurt the pipe ether. I guess as long as there isn't any cement mixed in it isn't deep enough to hurt the pipe sanding it off.
