Connecting 1/2" copper pipe to cpvc

I searched this forum and found discussion of several types of connector. I used a brass connector that has a compression fitting (with metal ring) on one side and a threaded female connector on the other side. I slipped the compression side onto the copper pipe and tightened it snugly then took off with the cpvc from the threaded female connector on the other side, using teflon tape when screwing in the cpvc male connector. Is this an acceptable way to transission from copper to cpvc? The piping runs under the floor and the connection is accessible from the crawl space if that makes a difference.

That is certainly an acceptable method. Another way would be to solder a threaded adapter to the copper and mate it to a threaded adapter to glue to the cpvc.

With the compression fitting you also have a union fitting.

Since it is accesible i have no complaints. I don't use compression inside walls and areas i can't get to at later date...seems fine to me though.
