Default No need to glue pvc to washer box ...

Removed a washer box, house is maybe 20 years old. Pvc fell out of the box without pulling. Primer was used on the pipe, but not on the box. Never a leak since the WM hose goes into the pipe.

Don't prime a ftg here and there, you wouldn't believe how much money you can save in buying primer. It's all about the bottom end.

Save $ in time too. Probably a few seconds each fitting skipped. That all adds up.

When I saw this on the main screen, all I could see was "no need to glue pvc to".

For some reason I knew what the rest of the sentence was.

I was with out HVAC guy installing a rooftop unit.. At the very end I had to glue a small trap for the condensate. The HVAC guy tells me don't worry about glueing it, they aren't that important anyways... While he wasn't looking I threw some glue in lol

Here they want them in copper, the inspectors relaxed a little on that code when tweakers kept stealing it.

Yeah, common problem with the condensate line not being glued. When I did a/c service, I had a little air ram deal to clear the line, just a co2 cartridge in a holder. Had a few blow apart in the walls, that's fun.
