I feel that I am a handy guy know how to do some things but for some reason I am having trouble keeping my PCV pipes guled together. I have use the purple primer and the hot glue then in 6 mos to 1 year the weld opens up. I have a lot a line pressure becasue I am comming directly off of my meter. Does any one have a answer for me?

This house & my last house I have had 85 psi
I couldn't leave hoses turned on very long w/sprayer attachmanet on the end (in off position). The hose would burst

But pipes inside were copper pipes for water, no lawn stuff
I do have CPVC at this house - no problems

Usually as long as it is full inserted & twisted you are fine as Kap said
