Sloppy primer is a pet peeve of mine.
Better to prime sloppily complete than not to prime at all. Excess primer I don't worry about. Dirty primer and excess glue I do.
Leak was at this tee.
Notice the lack of any primer. Doesn't look like any glue on the pipe either.
But if the inspectors can't see it .... then it must not be primed.
Looks like the work of one of my ex-employees. Refused to use primer or glue both the pipe and fitting. I refused to continue paying him so he started his own company. I make a lot of repair money off that dude!
I guess I will need to make sure a few extra drops are visible somewhere on the joint.
There was a contractor that installed some irrigation for the city I worked for long ago.
He killed two birds with one stone. He mixed primer and glue in the same can.
That is stupidity but you don't need primer. I've seen more leaks at glue joints because of too much primer than not any.
I've honestly not heard of that. How so? Burn through or something?
The only time I've seen pipe melted is when there was primer or glue sitting inside the pipe, pooled up. That is just excessive glue or primer, caused by inexperience workers, or hacks and pikers.
