Last winter I had to replace some broken CPVC pipe in a cabin that froze. My wife said she could smell the glue in the water afterwords, and that it remained for several weeks. We don't use the cabin much in the winter so the water doesn't move much. So now I will be teeing into 1" PVC pipe at my well in my permanent resdidence. Don't want the same effect (although I never did smell/taste it). So I wonder if I just gooped up the pipe too much on the inside and left a large bead of excess glue on the inside of the pipe. The question: Are there any tips/tricks for gluing up PVC to get a secure bond yet minimize the excess that may form on the inside of the pipe?
