    Finalized my plumbing in the sump and am about to glue it to bulkheads. Can I use the same glue or do I really need to get the PVC to ABS glue? (green one I think)

    I'm pretty sure you need the green. I have a can if you want to borrow it.

    Also, would I still use the purple primer, or is there a special primer also?

    I have used the normal pvc glue plenty of times for bulkheads without issue. Even without primer. Just make sure clean and dry. May as well use primer if you have it though.

    I used the PVC glue to go PVC -> bulkhead as well. Didn't know I need anything different lol.

    I used a threaded bulkhead so I didn't need any. You're still welcome to it if you want.
