Use of Compression Fittings

I am planning to replace my electric hot water heater. I will be replacing the current 50 gallon unit with a new 80 gallon unit. The current unit is under the basement steps. The new unit will not fit in this space. I can locate the new unit on the other side of the steps; however, I will have to relocate the shut off valve higher on the cold water line, and make new connections to the unit. I have copper pipes. I would like to use flexible tubing with compression fittings for the new lines. I would also like to use compression fittings for the shut off valve. Any problems with using compression fittings instead of solder?

Compression fittings work fine if installed properly.
