    My dog chewed the overflow pipe today. Made a nice big mess all over the floor. Anyway wanted to find out how long I have to wait after gluing PVC pipe with PVC-u before I can run water through my sump again.

    A few minutes will suffice.

    Is the PVC-u not toxic

    Did you use tangit? If so 5 or so minutes. Its safe I have glued and put the water though it many a time with no visible ill effect. Wonderful stuff.
