Keep the fan on for a week and all the solvents in the glue should out gass in this time, most water pipes are glued and charged with water within 24 hours and in a day or 2 the solvents are gone and don't show up in testing, have been through this several times. A total pain in my back side. After 36 hours the levels were not dectable on a MSA or RGA that ...

Oatey Regular Clear PVC Cement contains Tetrahydrofuran, Acetone, PVC Resin, Cyclohexanone, and Methyl ...

Cut it about one foot back from the lose fitting. Purchase one - 2" SLIP COUPLING. Which do not have a stop in the middle like standard fittings do. When there's little to no available movement, you need to use slip couplings. These will allow you to (after applying primer and glue) slip it all the way over one pipe, to allow the other to swing into place. ...

These products bridge gaps fairly well and dry staying a nice white color. The product that I ...

I agree with lowercaset's answer: No-hub coupling is the way to go. To answer your followup question: While different pipe materials will have the same nominal pipe size, they will have different actual outside diameters. When selecting a no-hub coupling to join dissimilar pipes, you need to select one with the correct ends for the two pipes that you are ...
