1. Area of pipe & fitting to be soften by solvent cement

2. Apply a layer of cement in the fitting socket, and a layer of cement on the pipe. Sufficient cement should be applied for proper gap filling.

3. Assemble the pipe and fitting while the surface is wet. Rotate the ppe up to 1/4 turn, and push in to the socket until it reaches to the bottom of the socket.

4. The interference fit design allows the pipe and fitting to fuse together. The bond is created in the loose section of the joint. Joint strength develops as cement dries.
