I did some plumbing in my addition and used CPVC glue on PVC pipe. Should I remove the pipes where I did this or is the CPVC glue going to work on the PVC pipes? Thank you for any advice....

If they aren't leaking you might want to leave them alone. However, CPVC glue requires no primer. It's a 1 step glue. Regular schedule 40 PVC requires a primer and glue. You can alway's cut out leaky joints down the line. Slip couplings come in handy.
