can i use purple primer to fit my pvc? i have used silicone on my last tank, but would much rather use purple primer on my new build. i planed on giving it lots of drying time, than rinsing it with fresh water before the install

You can use the primer, but it's not a replacement for glue. Some guys have used the primer and colored all their pipes purple

used it all the time and ran it right after no problems use it with confidence its (food grade) as with the glue for it since PVC and CPVC are made for drinking water and other food processes

yep i knew the glue was safe but i was not sure about the primer. and im almost done with it all. came out great, you can only see glue and primer in one problem area, and you will not be able to see that area once its up and running, also no leaks under pressure
