Our code says that primer must be purple in color.

We are allowed to use a u.v. detectable clear primer. We must provide a u.v. light at time of inspection.

That's a really cool idea. Ima run that one by the inspectors around here.

Wow that sucks. It used to be that way around here but, it just looks terrible so they changed it. They dont sell clear primer anywhere other than pro places though.

In Colorado Springs, Pike's Peak Regional Building Department amended the code to allow the use of clear primer.

In Pueblo, purple is required except for when working in a finished structure.

Actually I think using purple is a good training aid to help a guy build better control of how he is dressing his pipe and fittings. Anal retentive freaks like me obsess about such things....:laughing:

Here in Northern California we don't come across many situations where you need pvc primer anyway. We cant use cpvc and sch 40 pvc can be used for water service but 90% of the plumbers I know use copper. And for drainage we use ABS, cast or dwv copper

This post brings back memories. Back in the boy scout days at summer camp. All of a sudden a new camper {younger} would be pulled aside and told that he should proceed to the camp doctor as he had a case of earlobeitis. The camp doctor was in on the deal and after a examination would paint the ear lobes with merthiolate. It was funny to see all the kids running around for a week with red ear lobes.
Of course the next year when they came back they were the tellers.
Every once in a while you got a kid that would get his ears painted for 2 or 3 years.
