    Good point I will quit useing this method since it should not work!

    I will also quit plumbing because I have had to take apart my own work with a torch and since it did come apart I must not know how to assemble PVC properly. Now I'm off to make my fortune as a male stripper.

    I've been out of the loop for a while is 42 years old with a lot of back hair considered sexy?

      Wow, did someone have too much estrogen in their cereal this morning? This was a joke for those ultra sensitive types.

          Because I teach plumbing now, I have the time to play around with things. It gives me clarity and the students practice. So we glued up some pvc. Some joints were done by the book. Cleaned, primed, wiped, glued and wiped again. Others were primed and glued and we also used both clear and purple primer. All joints were let set for the same times. Some 15 minuts and some over night.

          Results:

          All 15 minute joints will come apart with heat.
          Of the over night joints. Only the purple primed, non wiped joints came apart.
          All non primed joints came apart requardless of set time.

          Practice does'nt always make perfect. Sometimes it makes permenant,
