    They make clear primer! It's what I always use.

    The purple primer is not needed for HVAC here.. I've never used it in the past..

    Just use the cleaner, then glue. never had problems with it.

    They do make it clear, and I only use it if there's no inspection, if there is... the inspector looks for the purple color on every joint.

    There is a purpose for primer and everyone should use it period.
