    PVC Leaks

    This weekend I decided to pipe around my heater. I bought a couple of 2" x 2.5" three way valves, some PVC, some PVC primer, & PVC Cement. I followed the instructions as best I could, but obviously not good enough.

    I've got leaks.

    So without ruining these two expensive valves I just bought, how should I go about fixing the leaks?

    Where are they leaking? You will have to post a pic or two so we can see what you are talking about.

    If they are just very slow weeping kind of leaks, sometimes, but not always, hey will seal themselves after a few days.

    I appreciate the help guys. Found a couple of videos on youtube that demonstrated what I need to do... doesn't look very hard at all, I'll be able to salvage & reuse my valves no problem.
