    Plumbing Question ??

    I have to cut the gray pipe coming out of the heater to plumb in a SWG cell.
    Is the Gray pipe CPVC ? I can see some copper specks through to gray.
    If so what glue to use ?? Looks like there might be some kind of sealent used as the joint has a with ring around it . (See pic )

    Its the pipe coming out the heater the shorter one..

    Thanks for any assistance !!!

    Yes, gray pipe coming out of the heater is almost invariably CPVC.

    You use universal cement to bond PVC to CPVC.

    I don't see a picture.

    Home Depot will have Oatey PVC All-Purpose Cement, which is fine.

    Every brand calls it something a little different. "universal" is my personal generic name.

    Re: Plumbing Question ??

    Depending on your climate, you will want to use a medium bond pvc. Hard bond cements will actually crack in cold temperatures and break pipes when it gets very hot out 100F+ because it does not expand and contract at all. Most All purpose cements fall into the All Purpose category.
