Hell, I seen this jack azz glue poly gas pipe. It worked. Lmao!! It's bad.very bad.

How do you compress cpvc? It may work, but it is incorrect. Wait till u get that one bad press. I would use shark bite on cpvc before compression.

Yellow glue and transition stops are the way I prefer. Atleast if it fails then I was doing all the correct manuf. recommendations.

What's crazy is that manuf. says u can do it. I am just sceptic of some things.

That just scares me. That's all. Nothing personal.

Had the flow guard reps out at one point, their recommendation was to give two wraps of Teflon over the ferrule when pushed against the stop then tighten.... Not quite sure why thread lubrication would be needed, but that was their claim. If the ferrule tightens crooked it will temporarily hold but eventually drip and have to be replaced. Male adapters with fip stops or glue type makes me feel better.

We have used compression stops on cpvc pipe. Teflon tape around the brass ferrule and tighen. I would be more worried about how brittle cpvc pipe gets. Cpvc is easy to work with but I just wonder how long before we see major problems with it? I had some bad flow guard gold glue that I bought from plumbing supplier and I used it on two repipes. After the glue would set up it turned scaley. I complained to supplier and eventually the flow guard rep looked at the glue and fittings I kept. They tried to say it was the humidity here in Florida, not buying that crapp. I redid both repipes at no extra expense to the customers and sent oatey a bill. Oatey finally had the glue and pipe to fitting connection and determined the glue was bad. I got reimbursed a year later, what a pain.

If given the chance I get rid of them.

As for the glue, I give it 30 minutes and have not had a problem. There are always sharkbites.

I agree with the above 100%

I've seen compression stops on CPVC but I've never done it that way. I prefer the glue on stops and I always use the Oatey Flowguard Gold. Haven't any leaks using it yet .

The best way is not to use CPVC....

I use pex now but it will be a long time or a class action suit before they stop in Florida. Used compression stops for 20 years on cpvc here and no compression stop problems. Like was said , brittle after several years you have to watch and hold back on anything you do, like tighten the packing nut.
