Yea, Ive seen bell ends leak because of pooling and fittings come apart because of too much primer.

the pikers are the ones too cheap or lazy to prime, and the hacks leave puddles of solvent in the connections

Despite what our detractors claim, there is an art to priming & gluing.

Not much art to it. Clean it glue it and bury it.

well.. I don't know if I would call it art

But I think it's a step by step process that should be followed , every time, every fitting.. Paying attention to detail to every time you glue a joint will last the longest

I've never seen a too much primer situation, I've seen lots of poorly glued joints/ pvc sockets not all the way in .. These fittings are tapered so it's very important to make sure there entirely into the socket

I also think.. ( well all the steps are important) but a good way to ensure a strong glue joint is to make sure you get a 1/2 twist on your fitting to get the glue alllllll the way around
