Depends on if it's PVC pipes or metal. PVC you put primer and then the glue and it's almost instantaneously dry, it really doesn't take that long for the PVC pipes to dry.

I'm a little confused. Glue? The leak was in your house? Any leak in your valves or piping should be able to be repaired immediately.

Every pipe dope we've ever used has been usable immediately.

It normally takes a day for glue to dry. The water valve is now dry and you can safely use the shower. However, you can contact the contractors to check that water valve is working fine and for reassurance about the glue being completely dry.

24 hours typically, depending on the type of glue.
