I'm not quite sure what you mean, but the PVC glue is a chemical bond between the PVC and can be utilited to run water through them a few hours after your "glue" them. You may wish to wait 12-24 hours if you have the time, but I glued mine and 2 hours later ran the pump without and issues.

I'm not an expert, so does anyone else have thoughts on this?

primer and glue set up quick, but there a fumes still around for a little while, I would wait (like I did) for 3-4 hrs.
