Re: PVC to copper compression fittings
Why not use a metal compression fitting instead of the PVC one, or is there not one made that will fit? I am assuming that you are joining two pieces of copper right? I am guessing that the constant warming and cooling cycles are causing the PCV to loosen. Cool water when it is flowing and then warms while static and near the water heater.
