Video transcript: How To Connect PVC Pipe
Use a utility knife or pipe-deburring tool to remove all burrs from the outside and inside of the pipe. Apply a liberal amount of primer to the inside of the fitting until you feel drag from the softening plastic. Then, do the same to the outside of the pipe, going slightly beyond the width of the connection. Finally, put another coat of primer on the inside of the fitting. Now, while the primer is still wet, apply a healthy coat of cement to the outside of the pipe. Then move to the inside of the fitting without redipping. Go for a second dip and hit the outside of the pipe again. Join the pieces together using a firm, 1/4-turn motion to fully seat the pipe in the fitting. Hold the pieces together for at least 30 seconds.
