As in any brass to plastic, at first, I rotate backwards until I feel the brass thread drop into the plastic. Going forward right away is asking for a cross thread.

Exactly what I do, and on the odd occasion you get the PITA client who is standing over your shoulder and says "You are going the wrong way!"

I came across this interesting valve box a few days ago. I think it was a home owner job judging by this and the 2" pop ups in the lawn areas.

Blowed out pipe.
Why is it so difficult for people to use primer and the right glue on flex pipe?

i theorize that if you don't need primer then why would they make it?
