regular pvc cement on gray water tank pipes?
« on: July 12, 2017, 04:03:44 PM »
over the last couple of months, I've noticed that I have a drip from the gray water tank, where the reducer pipe comes out of the tank and hooks to the pipe where the drain valve is. Today, I put some water in it, and crawled under there to see what was up, and it appears the whole thing is about to come out! So before I take it out to fix, I'm wondering if this goes together with regular pvc glue?

as you can see in the pic, it's almost out completely at the top. So I'm gonna need to glue that back, so is it regular pvc glue? I do know I'll have to clean it all good

That should be ABS pipe and you need ABS glue, PVC cement will not work, but most any hardware store should have ABS glue available.

thank you! I was just coming back to post I'd found it in doing some more research. couldn't find anything at first, and gave up too quickly and came here to ask.   :D

my next issue is going to be getting it back in, that fitting is right against the frame! I may have to grind the top down a little bit to get a better fit, I'll update tomorrow after I get it done
