In response to Re: ABS Glue
ABS does not use a primer.

: : I just did some ABS plumbing work and didn't follow the instructions on the glue correctly - I put the glue in the socket only and not on the pipe. Nothing is leaking but should I be concerned with pre-mature failure? I did the 1/4 turn to ensure coverage. Funny, I read the instructions I just didn't see the part about putting the glue on the pipe. I should have known from my PVC sprinkler work to do this. The pipe is for a shower trap and drain line under slab.

: : Thanks for your input!

: I guess if you did prime it properly and used a lot of gllue there should not be a problem TEST it is you can.

: This is another reason I like CI/ copper as you know right away if your going to have a failure.

: If your really concerned, just cut it out and redo the job as plastic is really cheap and call back cost a heck of a lot more.
