How can you let your inline-connections cure before pressurizing?


So I'm stumped by this.

I'm connecting the last bit of my inline for my faucets and all in the new bathroom. This time I'm using CPVC (pipe and fittings) instead of sharkbites/Pex.

So - I've done a lot of drain pipe without any problems but this is the first time I've ever used cement for a pressurized line. How long do I have to keep the inline void of pressure after I install the new fittings?

If I wait until tomorrow morning I can connect things via T into the old line - and that would give me maybe 8 or 9 hours. Is that long enough? Or should I plan for a lengthier time?

Oh really - well then I'm bothered over nothing. By the time I get it all pieced together several hours would have gone by - and there will be nothing to worry about.
