    Glue for PVC pipe into CPVC Jandy valve?

    I've read people say to use the Oatey red can All Purpose Cement. On the Oatey site they say this:

    Can I use All Purpose Cement to join PVC to CPVC?
    No. It is not recommended because it takes longer for CPVC to finish the curing process necessary to complete a strong bond after the cement is applied. CPVC is also rated for hot water use which will affect cure times. PVC is not rated for hot water temperatures.
    I don't care about the cure time and no hot water will go through the pipes. I know they're two different kinds of plastics but has anyone used this glue and then the joint leaked?

    It's fine. Even regular pvc glue will work if you give it 12 hours to set.
