CPVC if I recall rightly comes about 2 inches or less in diameter and pex is around 1 inch or less in diameter. If you choose to use pvc then be sure to use the purple cleaner before gluing.
why do you want to glue fittings anyway?
I was going to just dry fit them and see if they work, they should if I am aggressive with my assembly, but I wondered if others who do glue in tank assemblies use something in particular of just the regular glue.
I'm a copper pipe guy, I solder well, never had a leak yet, and never converted to plastics and compression fittings other than for the tap works.
