When performing a water installation, sometimes there are circumstances when you have to connect two or more pipes. Therefore, glue pipes and fittings are needed so that they can be connected perfectly. This glue is very easy to find on the market with various types and qualities. However, it turns out that choosing glue for this pipe should not be arbitrary and there must be some considerations first.
Some things that need to be considered include how long the glue will dry, how the glue will look after it is applied, how much it costs, and what effects are likely to occur after the glue is applied. All of these things will be very important if it is in a large-scale project. Therefore, the following must be taken into account in advance.
Pipe Glue Criteria to Pay Attention to
1. Perfect glue
The first criterion of pipe glue is perfect adhesion. This is very important, especially for new PVC pipe installations. The glue should hold the pipe together perfectly. You don't want the hassle of going through a piping installation just because there is one problem where the pipe doesn't stick properly, right?
In addition to perfect adhesion, glue for pipes should also have a long enough resistance. Also, make sure that the glue can keep the pipes and joints in place so that there are no leaks in the future. Carelessly gluing pipes, especially using bad quality glue, will actually be troublesome in the future. When a pipe breaks, you have to fix it and drain your savings.
When building a house, there are many water pipes to connect. Therefore, don't be too wasteful in using pipe glue. In addition to making the expenditure bigger, using too much glue also does not necessarily guarantee that the pipe sticks together perfectly. Here the efficiency of the glue is needed. The more precise and efficient the glue, the better the result.
