Sometimes it's non pressure, sometimes it pressure. Assume pressure.

comment Can I thin thick PVC cement with primer?
This doesn't really answer my question. Is thinning a viable option? As you mentioned, the time killing run to the hardware store is what prompts me to ask the question. By "thicker or gummy", do you mean in degree of thickness or is gummy a different sort of property?

comment How do I prevent mold in drywall mud pail?
Thank you for your answer. Mold was growing mostly on the side of the bucket. I didn't/couldn't scrape the side because it had started drying and would drop hard bits into the mud.

comment How can I match the wall color after dent fixing?
Exactly what I do with drywall. I use a utility knife to cut a 1" square of paper out, peeling it away from the gyp inside. Hit the hole with a bit of mud and head to the store.

comment What is a “wet edge” and how do I maintain one?
Ok, I'll modify my comment: Wet on dry = potential bad. It may leave a stripe where you overlap the finish.

comment What is a “wet edge” and how do I maintain one?
I thought it was so you're not putting poly (or paint, etc.) over PARTIALLY dry poly, thus causing the partially dry material to peel up or otherwise disturb the finish. Wet on wet = good. Wet on dry = good. Wet on partially dry = bad.

comment What is the proper way to clean a water heater?
I would suggest not running the water into the utility sink. The sediment/scale could clog your drain.
