How to install a 1 1/4" valve on 1 1/4" black plastic main water line from well Do I use PVC glue and hose clamps on the ridges?

This is the thick walled pipe that comes in big coils? And your valve has barbed rings, shaped so the pipe goes on easier than it comes off? No glue. Use 2 hose clamps at each connection, opposite and reversed so that the screws are on opposite sides and can be tightened from the same side. –  bcworkz Oct 5 '13 at 21:31
