i left it at that, i wasnt sure if acetone would be safe or not... it evaporates very quickly though... maybe somebody with more experience might know for sure, i just grew up with a father who is a chemistry teacher, so i learned my chemicals real quick... does the glue itself contain acetone or did you get the cleaner? if its just the cleaner, isopropyl (i think i spelled that right lol) alcohol (aka rubbing alcohol) will work just as good... if its the glue, not so sure about that

Well CPVC generally carries hot water (or water in general) so I'd think it would be safe..

but you also have to look at other possibilities... we can drink water with chlorine in it no problem right? fish cant have chlorine in their water... just saying that just because its safe for us to drink doesnt mean it is safe for aquarium water to be in... thats my opinion not to try and shoot you down pp5

I say just glue it, and rinse it out with water + water conditioner. I doubt any harm will come from using it. but I would suggest getting actual PVC glue haha.

PVC cement is usually for waste water pipes not drinking water. They do have a plastic tubing that is used for potable supply water I believe it is called PEX tubing and uses brass or copper compression couplings. At least here in NY and NJ. In fact even in NY it was illegal to use PVC in any part of a house up until a few years ago when they changed the BLDG code. The city wouldn't allow its use because when PVC is burnt it creates a deadly mustard type gas.
