    Use the WATTS QUICK CONNECTS they are great and work well. I use them in the field as opposed to sweating cooper and besides have you priced cooper lately? They work!:)

    fittings

    Unless you are using the plastic ones, they are MUCH more expensive than a sweat fitting, and what does the price of copper tubing have to do with the cost of the fittings?

    I would agree with HJ. Using push in connectors to plumb a whole house is rediculous. I would sweat on fittings.
