Is there a way to reuse PVC fittings?
Re: Can you reuse “messed up” PVC fittings? It is the viscosity of the glue that pushs them apart, which is why the instructions tell you to push it in and hold it for a few seconds until the adhesion takes place. I have no problem reusing any fitting, just put primer and glue on them and slide the pipe in.
