    I will be installing a new fiberglass pressure tank. The in/out connections are 1 1/4†socket weld pvc. I’m planning on gluing some sch80 1 ¼†to ¾†NPT bushings in so I can make my connections with copper.

    Does sch80 gray pvc require any different primer & cement versus sch40 white? I’ve only done DWV before. I have the Oatey Handi pack which contains their PVC Regular Clear Cement and Purple Primer – NSF listed.

    Want to make sure I get this right.

    Thanks.

    Yes the product states up to 2" pipe for sch 80 just make sure to leave to dry for 12hrs for a proper cure before charging the system.

    IT should work, but the can will also have the specifications for the materials and schedules it works on.
