Chamfering?

Do any/most of you chamfer your pvc before priming and gluing..........especially on mainlines? Or maybe only on certain size pipe.

Thanks / Regards,

Mex

Not chamfering, which has actual specs, but rather deburring, is standard procedure for all PVC work on residential installs, and in poly-pipe territory, that's for valve manifolds and upstream underground piping, and almost nothing but.

The only times I used our Ridgit de-burr tool was when we had to use a saw to cut into poly or pvc. Using sch 40 and sharp shears on installs, there was no reason.

Page 5 suggests that a slight bevel be made at the end of the pipe.

Odds are you can get away without due diligence in your assembly work, but a sure thing is so much better. Besides, my own systems might contain less than a foot of PVC pipe all told.
