    Pool Glue??

    Hello, I just bought a new pump, filter, valves etc. I went to home depot and bought some weld-on 700 clear glue with primer. It says on the can it can be used on pool & spa, electrical, sprinklers, etc up to 4". I am using 2" so I thought it would work. I just completed the job find out that there is a "true" Pool & Spa Glue. My question is before I start my system back up,
    1. will the current glue hold?
    2. Will I have problems down the road?
    3. do you guys recommend redoing the plumbing using the true pool & spa glue?
    4. am i freaking myself out and loosing sleep for no reason??

    Welcome to TFP!

    What did you use the glue for and what sort of pool do you have?

    Thank you for the quick reply, I used the glue on all the fitting form the filter to the valves and in the middle. I have a inground pool & Spa, 30K gallons, and all jandy equipment. I also used the glue on the pipes starting from my pool suction and pool return. (two joints sit, about 6-8 inches below dirt)

    I think that you will be fine with that. The data sheet that I came across for it states that it is fine for use on all PVC fittings except schedule 80.

    I use plain old Oatey Purple Primer and Oatey PVC / CPVC cement for things and never have a problem.

    Don't worry about it. I use the clear glue all the time and have never had a problem. In fact I've used about every cement (it's not really glue ) they make at one time or the other and as long as you follow the directions they are all fine for their intended purpose.
