When starting out with solvent I used a marker pen to draw a line across the 2 pieces at the joint then removed it when the job was done. No need on a straight connector though
Ah, most pushfit around here and common.Mr KJ wrote: ↑May 5th, 2017, 9:50 pmSolvent all day long.
The problem with push fit is over time the ring seal compresses and loses its tightness. Added to expansion and contraction its an accident waiting to happen.
Plus if anyone uses a plunger to clear a clog they can blow off the pipe.

If you have leaks on solvent weld joints then something is very wrong and as you have found out trying plaster to seal the joint will not work. Time to start again from the beginning.
