CPVC Design/Install Errors - Too Little Glue

Following series of photos may show inadequate glue and/or failure to comply with manufacturer glue
procedures.  A water leaked from this fitting.  One question to ask is how this assembly passed the NFPA 13(R)* required hydrostatic pressure test.  Another question to ask is was the required hydrostatic test conducted?

*This was a 13R system, occupancy was ordinary combustible construction, a condo.
