Re: fresh water hose join to pipe

Bill,

One last question on using contact cement to join the unbarbed connections.

Do you spread it on both surfaces and allow it to become tacky before joining as usual?  Usually contact cement bonds on contact so how can you slide the hose onto the pipe?  Do you just spread it on the pipe, slide the hose on while still wet?

Normally I would go get some scrap pipe and try it out, but I'm on foot in the boatyard and Home Depot is a long walk.

Thanks,
Duane
