Reclaimed water pipe (Purple PVC) repair and glue question


I need to repair one of my septic lines that is purple pvc pipe. It says reclaimed water pipe, can I use regular collars and a short piece of regular pvc to repair it? Is the glue the same?

TIA
Stan.

PVC is PVC no matter what the color, and PVC specifically requires PVC primer and PVC glue. You can do exactly what you said. No problem.
Good luck!
