lubricating ABS for dry fit


Does anyone know if there is a lubricant that can be applied to abs pipe to allow for easy assemblage and break down during dry fitting?

I am working on three inch abs in a dusty basement and I'm having to beat my pipe and fittings apart! Will WD 40 interfer with the glue and the final bond?

I'm not aware of any product that you can apply to the hubs of plastic pipe to ease dry fitting and un-fitting. I certainly would not advocate spraying them with anything other than water.

WD40 has hundreds of uses, but this isn't one of them.

Thanks mate. I guess I'll just keep beating on them.

Electrician's wire pulling lube or astroglide sex lube. Don't use anything petroleum based. Water soluble good, oil soluble bad.
