Start by thoroughly cleaning the PVC of all oils and residues after cutting to length. Insure that all “flash” is removed from the ends by lightly sanding the cuts and slightly rounding the edges. This will insure a water-tight glue joint later.
Choose your top and bottom caps. I used standard PVC lead out caps, utilizing the flanged style for the bottom, (this also serves as additional support). Purple dope the inside of the bottom cap and the bottom ½” of the cylinder,(on the outside only!). Apply the PVC cement over the dried purple dope and attach the bottom to the cylinder. Careful because it is an almost instant bond! Now the fun part!
