If you want to experiment yourself, Harbor Freight has a plastic welder (air operated) that is an EXACT copy of a $600 model made and sold in the US. IIRC, they get about $40 for it, complete with air regulator. It might be worth it just to have one around. I think the welding rods are $4.95 for a pack of assorted types.
The operation is not hard to do, but you should definitely practice a bit joining some scrap pieces of PVC or ABS pipe before you hit the big time!!
