I was shocked to see CPVC in a home worth over $1.5M in a big city, I thought CPVC was mostly used in rural, cottages, farms RV/mobile type dwellings.

I was at a $2 million 4 story condo to with cpvc and compression stops. Leak call, guess what was leaking? Makes my skin crawl to see compression stops on cpvc. I sold new stops throughout the house, a Water Cop system and a whole house filtration package.

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.

Millions of jobs on your horizon. Flex a piece of new CPVC, then flex a 20 year old CPVC pipe. One of them will snap easily.
