PVC Glue?

Alrighty.. thread title is pretty self explanatory. What kind of PVC Glue should i be using to connect my drain line to my bulkhead? Preferably if anyone knows what type from home depot or lowes even..

Thanks.

I just bought the cheap stuff. It fully cures, you'll be ok. Primer is the key. Home Depot sells both primer and glue in small bottles as a kit - that's what I used.

Now.. PVC glue is the same thing as PVC cement right?

I bought Oatey PVC purple primer, and Oatey PVC cement.. it came as a combo. I also got teflon tape to wrap around the area where the return pump and return line meet. Just for extra precaution i guess.

Yup, that stuff will work. Don't skimp on the primer, that was my lesson learned.

You only need teflon tape on threaded interfaces. If these interfaces are under water (i.e. at your return pump) then you don't need it there either - because if you have a small leak inside your sump, who cares? (I'm assuming your return pump in internal to the sump - I can't remember off the top of my head your exact configuration)

Slip PVC? You need a 3/4" barb for hoses.
