Priming & Sealing Drywall in Basement

Well, I guess we're gonna have to agree to disagree then, huh? I'm not selling anything and if you're satisfied using a different type of product then who am I to argue with a painting professional?

PVA is not a high build I agree but for new drywall it works well. I use 6-2.

What are you using to prime new drywall with? If I missed it in the thread I apologize.

PVA stops the flashing of joints, so it does its job imo. It is not a multipurpose primer it is for new drywall.
