The size is 1/2" which is a nominal size for ID. The 5/8" is the same on copper, CPVC, Polly butyl and Pex. I like the shark bite the most. Long term or short term! The push fittings are probably the most resistant to movement and vibration. They will also spin without binding that may put presser on the pipe or the joint. I have been using them for years with great success. They also allow for disconnection and reconnection with one hand in a tight spot. There are no nuts to loosen up as you go down the road or during assembly. No way to over or under tighten the nuts. Lots of advantages and not much down side.

I found the PO had replaced the park water feed with Pex. Heard it is very resiliant. Heard it can even stand a freeze (not that one would want to test that) Agree that the flare is best way to go.
