The orange is what I used but I've been seeing some confusion. On Oatey's website they say the yellow is for potable water but I've read on a couple other sites that orange is ok too. I haven't done another batch yet so I might buy a couple new pieces and a jar of yellow just to be on the safe side.


Uni-weld says it's fine: http://www.elchem.com/UniWeld_Submittals/Uni-Weld%203200%20Series%20LOW-VOC%20CPVC%20Medium%20Orange.pdf



And here's another thread on the subject where the OP has used orange with a purple primer: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/new-sparge-arm-cleaning-cpvc-mash-80501/

just a shot of my 10 gallon rubbermaid cpvc manifold, connected with high temp tubing and a vinyl screw on hose barb. (bad cell pic) I didn't use any cement, fits snug, breaks down for thorough cleaning after every few batches.

Slots cut with dremel cut off wheel and cleaned with small file. I tend to crush on the fine side so I use a strainer bag to prevent clogging/stuck run off.
