I can’t tell you how many almost full cans of cpvc glue I’ve thrown out. So I use sharkbite on tha BS pipe now.
I saw a compression valve on the CPVC pipe, I wasn’t sure if that was good.
I don’t really like sharkbite, unless it’s temporary or if I have to use them, I will only use them if they’re not going to be inaccessible.

Yes, you can compress metal ferrules onto cpvc.

Yeah, I would only use in open areas. To be honest no high end homes here have cpvc.

Only shacks and fish camps really……
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.
