hello all, I have a pretty simple question, I just wanted to ask our community so I can avoid a catastrophe :). My question is: once dried, does PVC primer (the purple kind) and/or cement pose a danger to the water passing through the pipes?
I've been putting together some PVC to plumb my sump/refugium, and after priming and cementing some pieces together, I noticed that inside the pipes, some of the primer has run. Plus, after applying cement and pressing the pipes/fittings together, some of the primer/cement mixture is exposed inside the pipe (it "bunches up" as the pipe is slid inside the fitting/socket, also if the pipe doesn't go 100% into a socket, then a sliver of cement or primer will be exposed).
I know better than to just slobber loads of cement and primer on the PVC, but even being what I thought was conservative with how much I used, it seems impossible to keep the primer and cement completely hidden/obscured inside the piping.
I just wanted to double-check to be sure it will be OK for passing aquarium water through it once the primer and cement dries, before I connect it up to my tank and poison all the inhabitants :) Thanks!
