CPVC Part Sourcing

So I am getting ready to install a utility sink in my basement and I am looking to install some ball valves in the lines I'm running to the sink. This will allow me to isolate those lines since the job may take me longer than a day to do (we've got a baby so sometimes I have to drop things to take care of her) and the lines for the sink will be coming off the main line coming into the house.

Anyway, I looked online at HD and Lowe's and both places don't give me warm fuzzies about their ball valves for CPVC. Is there a better place to purchase the valves? I want to make sure that I don't install valves that are going to screw me over. Maybe their valves are fine and it's just the people that have problems that jump on to write reviews.

Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Do not use plastic valves. There's a reason they get so many complaints. Either glue on some threaded adapters or use Sharkbite valves. The SB's will be a little expensive, but for just 2 valves, not that big a deal.

I used this:

Spearsģ 3/4" CTS CPVC Brass Thread Fitting | U.S. Plastic Corp.

connected into like this:

TBN-12-24 - Cello TBN-12-24 - 3/4"x 1-1/2" Brass Nipple

connected into like this:

No leaks so far (18 months).I guess not the cheapest way to do this (those CPVC to brass fittings above sure are expensive.)

I didnít want any plastic valves or any plastic threads. But I guess SharkBite can do that also.

Thanks Guys. I'll probably use the sharkbite connectors since they are so simple to use.
