Maybe you wanna check with the manufacturer. You could use a computer, and get on the manufacturers "website"

Ita be fine. I transition all my copper mains to CPVC before hooking to water heaters or boilers. The plastic threads make up much easier.

On a gas water heater, I always stick up copper then convert over to CPVC. The CPVC gets very brittle, over time, from the heat the draft diverter throws out before the exhaust heats up the vent pipe. But that is just me.
