A rubber boot with hose clamps is the best, as there is no way to glue them thet will rilly hold. you will need to know each pipe size and your local hardware store will carry them. * There is a glue available that will bond the two different plastics very well. It has been used in the field for 15 years at least. I dont know of any failures, as long as proper assembly instructions are observed. . . clean pipe, right temperature, use cleaner on BOTH the ABS and the PVC, place glue on both surfaces to be joined, insert-slight twist-hold. Any decent hardware or big-box carries it. Just ask for "ABS to PVC glue".
