Mark the socket depth on the pipe end.

1Cutting the pipe

Cut the pie with the proper tool, using a fine-tooth saw blade guide.

1Joint Preparation

Slightly deburr the external pipe edge evenly.


Remove all the burrs and break the sharp lead edges. surfaces to be joined must be cleaned and free from dirt, moisture, oil, and other foreign material.

1Fit Check

Insert the spigot into the socket (Without solvent cement). An interference fit should occur between 1/3 and 2/3 of full entry.

1Make Line

Draw a line on the spigot to show the depth of socket.

1Application of Solvent on a Pipe

Apply an even coat of solvent to the pipe over an area corresponding to the socket depth and full marked length.

1Application of solvent into a fitting

Apply an even coating of approved solvent cement to the inside of the spigot or socket.

1Assembly of Joint

While both Pipe & Fitting surface is still in wet condition, push the spigot home into the socket in a slight twisting motion. Let the cemented *joint idle for 30 seconds.

1Clean Off

After assembly, wipe off the excess cement from the pipe at the end of the socket. Any gaps in the cement bead around the pipe perimeter may indicate a defective assembly.
