I use Quest fittings on everything! Muhaha!

The all-in-one pvc/cpvc/abs glue is allowed locally, so we keep a small can on the truck and I glue cpvc with that if I need to glue a joint.

To add fuel to this debate, that multipurpose glue is one of two locally approved methods to tie pvc pipe into an abs dwv system. The other is unshielded fernco couplings.
It's green glue errr excuse me cement

80% of the homes built here 2000 and up have CPVC in them 80% of them have compression stops on them. We, have used compression stops on them. Never had an issue with them being compression. Im more concerned of a dumbas5 not drying off the stub out good enough or cleaning the paint off of the pipe and the sh!t blowing off in the middle of the night. Florida air doesnt do copper right.
As long as you lightly sand the Cpvc like copper and put some pipe dope on the threads it will be just fine,but I use glue on stops for Cpvc
