Purple Primer used instead of 'glue".

Recently a friend came by as I was doing some work on my sprinkler system and noted that I was using both the purple primer and the clear "glue". He Is now a bit concerned as he says he thought the 'purple stuff' was a glue and did put together his own sytem at his home using only it. He says he did before burying most joints put them under presure to check the bond for leaks, all seemed fine, and has seen no leaks since then. Does he have a real problem? Thank you Stan

To me this seems like it should be a problem but i...
