    Thin glue is a good sign unless someone thinned out a can with primer. Bad glue has the consistency of jam or jelly. That means that the solvents needed to solvent weld the pipe and fittings have evaporated. On installs, I wanted a new can, used up that day. No old glue, because a new can is cheaper than having to dig up and re fit.

    I just leave the gallon cans in the warehouse and dispense it into quart containers as needed.

    I used to value the thickened cement as likely to set quicker (in the days before the blue glues)
