i used a fitting in a hard to get area called a shark bite. basically push it on and it seals. to remove, u insert a tool from the back to release it.
seems that i read in their literature that the "O" ring had a life expectancy or 5 or 10 yrs. is this the same thing?
the fittings weren't cheap (~$15) but worked well. no glue. also forgave minor imperfections in the pipe. the time savings was unbelievable.
