Change Of Subject

I've been spending a bit of time in the evenings working on my rough plumbing. The first order of business is to build the DWV (drain/waste/vent) system.

I'm using the black ABS pipe that is very common in residential construction in this part of the world. The pipe and fittings are glued together with a solvent cement that fuses the pieces together. It's easy to work with, but you have to work quickly.

Once you apply the cement and join the pieces together, you have only two to three seconds to get them aligned. After that, there is no forgiveness... they are s-t-u-c-k! If they aren't right, you throw them away. (Yes, that IS experience talking.)
