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.
you cant cut the sh!t with a pair of ratchet cutters. gotta use a saw blade and pull the teeth towards you or the sh!t breaks like glass.
