    Is this safe

    I used some adapters so I can use my intex swg. As you can see from the pictures specifically picture 2 some of the pvc glue is inside the pipe where water will flow. Is this harmful that water will be touching the pvc glue especially with all the warnings on the bottle.

    Virtually every PVC project will have residual glue seeping-out from the threads/joints following a repair. Once it is dried, you are fine. You should see some of the extra stuff after some of my PVC projects. Woo!

    Dried PVC glue is safe. the issue with the glue out of the can is the VOC's ( Volatile Organic Compounds). The VOC's can be an irritant to the lungs in short term and potential damage to internal organs over the very long term at high exposure rates. They are also flammable while "wet" . Just use the glue in a well ventilated area and away from ignition sources and you should be good to go. If you get some on your skin, follow the directions on the label. Also don't spill the primer on anything due to staining issues. That purple primer is good at staining materials, lol. I knocked over a can of it and stained my concrete basement floor.
