I just put together the pressure chamber in my air cannon a couple hours ago, how long should I wait before testing it out?

What do the cement instructions say?

It says wait 10–15 minutes for good handling, then to wait until completely cured before pressure testing. That’s it.

lol unhelpful directions lol

Then I am totally guessing when I say 24hrs. Because plumbing jobs don’t usually require a day. And if it were some freaky long time like a week the directions would probably mention.

Well it was 5 hours and it works great! I got up to 60 PSI when some if the Teflon connections started to squeal, so I just slathered silicon on it and by this time tommorow ut should be perfect.
