PVC glue odor in new pipes
Posted by Tim Closson on September 30, 1999 at 16:01:56:
I am a DIY, and this past weekend I replaced some pipes in our house. I used PVC, with a medium body glue and purple primer. I am afraid I didn't let the glue set up long enough before putting water in the lines, because since then, there is a very obvious glue odor coming from the water after sitting in the lines for any length of time. Will it eventually go away? Do I have to do the job all over again? Appreciate a reply!
