The glue should be dry within minutes. I would let it sit for a few hours just to be sure its totally setup. No need to rinse it.

If you havent done PVC work before be sure to always dry fit your plumbing. You have in effect 10 seconds or so from the time you slide the two PVC fittings together before the glue is set to a point you cant manipulate it.

When i plumbed my return line, the glue dried almost instantly like fishfreek said. i rinsed the pieces i used before gluing them together to get any dirt off them. good luck
