The Correct Way to Use Blue Glue

Does Red Hot Blue Glue really work on abs? Does it burn fat or just strengthen the abs as it expands? If you use the Christy's to seal up your packs, does the tape burn off or just hold in the moisture? Also, how long does it usually take for Red Hot Blue Glue to completely dry out?

The "invisible tape" (as it's sometimes called) is not recommended for use with a "bendable" fitting because of the potential leak. I used to call it the "punch-out" fitting, but they don't have any eyelets. So when applying this product, you need a hole punch or a sharp knife to remove the excess glue. I used to think that it was very difficult to remove using only the blade of my tool, but with some persistence, I was able to clean up most of the mess.

First, we start with the end of the PVC pipe or whatever you may have called it. You can use either the "standard" or the special version. Then we will apply some primer to the end. I used some "red hot red hot" primer, but that didn't do the trick. So I just used some "red hot purple" primer, and it worked great. The "red hot red" primer is just a little harder to remove than the standard.

Next, we cut some holes in the fittings and used the "red hot blue glue to attach the fittings to the holes. This worked great, but the "red hot purple" isn't as strong. It seems to melt a little bit while curing. So I used some "red hot red" primer, and it worked great. It also seems to bond better to PVC pipe than the "red hot blue glue." However, you can use both if you try it.

Now you can use your "pink hose" (a very cheap one) to put the hangers together. Some people try using "soda bottles" (also cheap and can be found at home supply), and this also seems to work. Be careful when using hangers - you really don't want the "red hot blue glue" on the end of the hose. I would suggest going with the "PVC pipe" for now.

After applying the "red hot purple" primer, you can apply your PVC pipe fitting and hanger and then apply the "PVC cement" to the fitting and hanger. I know I said before that I applied the "red hot" primer, but you don't really have to. The "red hot" does a good job, too, but sometimes it dries out a little bit. This is what happens when you use different primers and sealants.

If you are using the non-pressure potable water dispenser, make sure it has a "non-pressure" release when you attach the coupling to the coupling couplings on your RV. It will have an "intake port" like on a normal RV. On the other hand, the "exhaust port" does not have one. The reason is that it does not take pressure to discharge waste gas. The "red hot" blue glue will dissolve that "no pressure" valve.

Use your "heat gun" or paint sprayer to get the excess glue off the pipe fittings. Then, using a hairdryer, blow away excess glue on the coupling couplings and exhaust port. You may need to repeat the above steps for the coupling couplings on the non-pressure RV. By the way, when removing excess cement, it is important to leave the joint undisturbed as residue will cause rust.

Now that your PVC pipe fittings are clean and free of blue gluing fluid and excess glue, you must install them. Do not install in reverse. Start with one side and run fast pressurization up through the entire pipe, ensuring that you pressurize all the way through, even if the fittings are not totally tight. You can use the manufacturers' instructions or the ones included with your fast pressurization system. This will ensure maximum productivity, the maximum life of the fittings, and the best value for your money.

After getting your new fittings, it is important to follow the local code requirements carefully. These include operating your new fixtures according to the capacity of each system. Some states require the presence of a vapor barrier between the hot and cold sides of the fitting. If you do not have a vapor barrier at the fitting end, contact your local code enforcement agency and discuss with them the possibility of getting a sticker or permit to install a vapor barrier.

The most important thing to remember is to test the fitting as soon as possible after purchase. Make sure it is working properly and thoroughly. It would be a good idea to also buy a bottle of Blue Glue and a bottle of local cement primer. When applying the primer, you should apply an even coat over both the glue and the primer. This will help you to achieve even application and consistent coverage.
