    painted pvc pipe

    Hey Folks -
    I'm wanting to do a little work on the waste line from my multi port valve, but the pipe is painted. How do I best prep the cut end to apply the pvc cement? Do I sand the paint off, or is there some solvent I should use instead?

    Sand it down. As long as the PVC cement can contact bare, raw PVC you will be ok. Use the purple primer it you have it.
