How Do I Make PVC to Brass Fittings Plumbing Connections?

Answer

Measure the length of the piece of PVC pipe you are installing. Cut the pipe to length with the PVC cutter. Remove the bur left by the PVC cutter with the file. Open the cap of the PVC cleaner. The brush will be attached to the lid of the cleaner. Dip the brush into the PVC cleaner can if the brush runs dry. Open the PVC glue container. Wipe the excess glue from the lid attached brush by dragging the brush on the interior edge of the can. Apply the glue to the PVC pipe in the same manner as you applied the PVC cleaner. Insert the PVC pipe into the fitting. You will see glue coming out from the connection between the pipe and fitting; this is normal and shows that the proper amount of PVC glue has been applied to the joint. Maintain steady pressure on the connection for 15 to 20 seconds to allow the glue to set. After the glue has set, the bond made between the PVC pipe and the PVC fitting will be unbreakable.
