I don't know what it is. The 4" just doesn't slide once I get it more than half way in. The first half rotating it in there's some friction. The second half just pushing it is very difficult without the squeeze clamps pulling the pieces together. I bought a 32oz thing of the heavy duty cement today. Maybe the 8oz I was using was too old? It was fluid though and I just bought it recently. It's not like I used it for some other project and it's been sitting there absorbing moisture.

I have more pieces to do. I'll let you guys know what happens. Thanks for all the feedback so far!

I've been making something using 2" and 3" PVC pipe and caps. Both dry fit loose till half way in also. The caps are Charlotte brand from Lowe's but I don't know what brand the pipe is, the 3" is fairly new but the 2" has been in my garage for years and years.
