Below are a few important differences between the Push-fit and press-fit fittings.
Professionals prefer press fit. Push-fit fittings are primarily targeted at DIYers, handymen, and home builders.
In general, press fittings are less expensive than push-fit fittings. Of course, a pressing tool costs, but savings quickly offset this on fittings.
Press fit comes in sizes ranging from 12" to 4". Most push-fit fittings have a maximum size of 2". More than 800 CTS configurations with various alloys and sealing materials are available from press-fit manufacturers than from push-fit manufacturers.
Push-fit fittings are only suitable for use with hard copper and a number of different types of plastic piping. Copper tube and stainless press fittings are compatible, and PureFlow fittings are designed for PEX, but Viega also makes MegaPress fittings for other metals, including carbon steel.
