For additional information on the products in this video and their use, see the IPS website (makers of Weld-On):
Greg demonstrates how to properly cut and join PVC pipe the right way.
This video focuses on primer and solvent slip joints. That only takes a few seconds, but what is equally important is showing you the common mistakes and why some joints go bad (and can cause a lot of damage in the process). Threaded joints, unions, and other related subjects will be covered in a future production.
