Water main

The water main getting into the house has a leak that I would like to repair. The pipe is the black plastic pipe 1"( CTS or similar). I did the damage when digging for a new addition.
I'm trying to use two compression fittings and in between the fittings PVC or copper since to be able to use the same type of pipe that I have I need to buy 200'.
My question it is possible to do it the way that I have explained or is there other way?
Thanks
