Hi,
I am trying to install a 3-way pvc valve to my tigerflex return line an a tigerflex
line to a jetted tub. I am using pvc primer and glue. When I put the return line
into the valve and hold for a minute it pushes its way out.

When I dry fit the lines they seem fine. When I add the glue it pushes itself out.
Any ideas? Thanks

When you put together a PVC joint the glue starts reacting and it will often push back out to some extent. If you can hold onto it and keep it together for twenty seconds the reaction should stop and the glue will lock up.
