PVC plastics are joined with plastic fitting and solvent glue. Use a solvent glue that is made for the  type of plastic pipe you are installing. For example, you should not use ABS solvent on PVC pipe. Some solvent glues, called all purpose or universal solvents may be used on all types of plastic pipe. Solvent glue hardens in about 30 seconds, so test fit all plastic pipes and plastic fittings before gluing the very first joint. For best results, the surface of plastic pipes and plastic fittings ought to be dulled with emery cloth in addition to liquid primer before they are joined. Liquid solvent glues and primers are poisonous and combustible. Provide sufficient ventilation when fitting plastics, also store the products away from any source of heat.
