Occasional leaks, probably caused by using old, partially solidified cement. We use PVC mostly on condensate lines and once a can has been opened, I like to use it all up. That's why I only buy PVC cement in 4 and 8 ounce cans. On condensate in mechanical rooms I only use clear cement and primer. Makes the job look a little cleaner. Ordering directly from the manufacturer allows me to buy exactly what I want, in the size and quantity I want. As for brands, I usually go with Oatey, Harvey's or Weld-On for ABS cement. And Weld-On for Wet-Dry PVC cement (because my guys were getting leaks with Oatey's wet dry).
Thank-you for the advice on probable cause of leaks.
A three man crew would go through over a gallon of the stuff in a day.This is mostly on production ground work,sometimes top out.
Glue drying out was not part of the lack of bonding issue with our lo-voc.
