I was installing a new
p-trap under the kitchen sink:
Attached tailpiece to the sink no problem. Then I prepared a short piece of
1 1/2" ABS pipe, put a plumbing cement on it, inserted one end to the curvy end of the
p-trap and the other end (also with cement on it) plugged in to ABS
1 1/2" adapter (the other end has threads and slip nut, it is put on drain pipe).
So all pieces fit each other well, and I put everything on, opened water to test for leaks for a couple of minutes. At that moment I realized that the cement has to cure long enough before water flows in! I shut it off, and left for 1-2 hours.
Now I'm wondering if all the cement I put on fittings is damaged and has no use. Should I redo my work once again, and give enough time to cure cement?
