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

    Thanks / Regards,

    We only chamfer gasketed pipe usually 3" and up.

    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.

    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.
