The Pond Advisor highly recommends:

Christy's Red Hot Blue Glue for PVC solvent welds, particularly for pond or water feature installations. Here's a more structured summary based on the review:

Ease of Use: The coloured nature of the glue allows you to confirm where you've applied it visually. This helps to ensure a complete and secure bond, as you can easily spot where additional glue may be needed.

Reliability: The visibility of the glue also makes it possible to confirm that fittings have been glued, preventing potential mishaps such as forgetting to secure a connection.

Versatility: Christy's Red Hot Blue Glue is touted as an all-weather solution, meaning it can be used effectively in wet and dry conditions. This could be particularly useful for outdoor projects or those involving water circulation, such as ponds.

Performance: The Pond Advisor hails this as the best PVC glue they've used for solvent welds, suggesting that it provides a robust and reliable bond.

It's always important to read and follow the manufacturer's instructions when using adhesives like this and to ensure it's the right choice for your particular application.

How long does it take for Christy's Red Hot Blue Glue to set?

Like other PVC cement, Christy's Red Hot Blue Glue typically takes about 15 minutes to set enough to handle the joint. However, it takes much longer to cure and establish a complete bond fully.

As a general guideline, you should wait at least 2 hours before pressure testing up to 60 PSI, 24 hours for up to 180 PSI, and 72 hours for more significant pressures.

These times can vary based on factors like temperature and humidity. Cooler and/or more humid conditions can lengthen the drying and curing times, so it's always best to allow for extra time in those circumstances.

Remember, these times are estimates and refer to the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines for specific applications or requirements.

Does Christy's Red Hot Blue Glue need a primer?

Professionals often opt for Christy's Red Hot Blue Glue when working with PVC cement, often using a primer alongside it to improve bonding. Although not mandatory, primers can enhance joint strength by cleaning bonding surfaces and making PVC more flexible.

It's important to always follow the manufacturer's instructions and consider your project's specific requirements when deciding whether to use a primer. PVC primer maximizes joint strength and longevity, and while a joint can still weld without it, the connection won't be as robust as the primer allows the cement to penetrate deeper into the material.
