I built a watering system using cups yesterday. It's hooked up to the house water with the help of a pressure regulator and gauge. Since the system will be under pressure, I glued every piece with blue pvc cement. Once installed, I was too excited to wait until the next day to turn on the water to check for leaks and adjust the pressure to the cups properly. I did flush the system a few times before putting on the end cap.
When I let out the chickens this morning, I figured I would flush the system a few more times. I noticed a an odor of the water from the pvc cement coming out the pipe, so I made sure to flush the system a few extra times before heading to work. But it was hard to eventually tell if the smell went away since my hands already had a faint odor of the cement already. The water I first smelled had been sitting in the pipe all night, so any nasty contents could have been leached out already. However, now I'm worried that I might be poisoning my chickens because I did not wait 24 hours before filling the system with water.
Should I be concerned? Should I can empty the system and take it out of commision for a few days?
Essentially, what are your thoughts?
