    Does it matter if one uses a compression or a solder fitting for use as a bathroom shut off valve? Just two valves that shut off the shower, sink and toilet in the bathroom. Is there any reason not to use a compression fitting?

    Only serviceability issues, which would be easier to replace..

    valve

    Only servicability issues. Which will be most likely to leak and require replacement. Use the solder valve.
