    Hi guys,

    Never really worked with ABS but need to move a drain line a little bit. I was under the impression ABS didn't get a primer or cleaner before cement. Saw a cleaner while looking to pick up some cement though.

    Should ABS have a primer or cleaner applied before cement? I was assuming working with ABS was the same as PVC minus the primer. Just glue, twist, hold Or are there other things i need to know before using it?

    Read the glue can, it does not need a primer.
