CUT. PUSH. DONE. Innovative push-to-connect design makes for quick and easy installation. Connect two pieces of PEX, copper, CPVC, PE-RT and/or HDPE tubing in any combination. Use the right tool for the job with the connector that is ideal for working in tight spaces. Faster install time and ease of use reduces installation errors. The SharkBite Connection System makes any plumbing project fast and easy thanks to unique push-to-connect technology. When you insert a pipe into a SharkBite quick-connect fitting, the fitting’s stainless-steel teeth bite down and grip the pipe, while its special O-ring compresses to create a watertight seal.

SharkBite is the push-fit connection system that’s really taking hold. It’s the easiest way to join copper, CPVC or PEX pipe in any combination – with no soldering, clamps, unions or glue. Just insert the pipe and the stainless steel teeth bite down and grip tight, while a specially formulated O-ring compresses to create a perfect seal. Disassembly is just as fast using the simple disconnect tool. So fittings and valves can be easily changed and reused. They can even be rotated after assembly for easier installation in tight spaces. Get SharkBite, and get a grip on your next plumbing project. These fittings are lead free and meet all requirements for plumbing in California and Vermont.

    First, I have to say I’m not the handiest person in the world. I’ve done many minor general repairs around my home over the years, but plumbing issues have always been kind of intimidating. Unfortunately, several months ago one of my pex pipes under the house, leading to the kitchen sink, was chewed up by an animal that had managed to sneak down there. After researching the issue I attempted a couple of repairs that didn’t get the job done. While researching what other options I had online, I ran into many repair sites that raved about SharkBites for jobs such as the one I needed done. I talked to someone I knew who had used one in the past and likewise had nothing but positive things to say about them. I didn’t have money for a plumber so based on all the positive reviews and word of mouth gave this item a shot. It worked pefectly. I purchased a tubing cutter along with this, measured how much pex I’d have to cut, got under the house and it literally took me less than five minutes to cut the pex and install the SharkBite. I did this eight months ago and the repair is still holding strong. The only thing I’d advise is that this item doesn’t come with the removal tool, so I’d highly suggest getting that along with this. If you end up installing it incorrectly or unevenly, its very difficult to remove with the tool. Installation doesn’t require a tool, only removal. I can’t even stress how relieved I was to find the SharkBite and that it was so easy to install. Highly recommended to repair minor holes in pipes or as a general coupler to join two pieces together.Read more

    I’ve never worked with plumbing until recently. I’ve done several successfully on my 1955 home using sharkbite products. It’s amazingly easy to use and cost effective. You can use it on copper or pex or to connect the two together. You can also use it to connect a straight pipe to a screw on connector. You can get shark bite bite on and off valves as well. I suggest that you check around for pricing. They vary wildly on different sites and stores. I also strongly suggest that if you are a new to the use of this product and or plumbing that you visit YouTube and watch some of the DIY videos related to your project. There are numerous videos available by both professionals and DIY’s. Believe me, you will feel much more confident after you watch one or more of these videos. The sharkbite product has held well according to studies and the few that failed were thought to be due to burrs. To deburr your pipe use a deburring product on the end of each pipe or use sand paper or a nail file to sand until the end is smooth. Also the sharkbite must be inserted to the proper depth. Videos will show you how to do this simple step. You can also choose to insert a shut off valve which may come in handy in the future at relevant sites. Pex is supposed to be superior to copper. I have found that pex is very cheap, easy to work with, and useful for patches. There are different kinds of pex. Pex A and pex B are what you will usually see available. Pex A is more flexible and expands, it is freeze resistant. You should use this if you live in a cold climate. It is also easier to use for small patches, like a few feet or less. I haven’t seen Pex A for sale on Amazon but I’ve seen it at the local hardware and on ebay. Pex B is stiffer and harder to bend or straighten however warming it up helps. If you are using pex be sure to use the proper type particularly around hot water heaters. Hope that helps! Good luck on your project!Read more

  3. Reality Check

    Not cheap for a coupling, but it is so fast and allows combining different types of pipe so perfectly that it really is a no-brainer. I needed to connect old copper with new PEX in a very small opening and in an older building. All of the framing was dry and within an inch. Although I could have sweated the copper pipe with a PEX fitting using the needed protection, it just wasn’t worth the risk of starting a fire in a concealed space. Using this fitting, i was able to skip the torch, solder, flux, heat sink putty, and flame guards. I didn’t need to worry about setting off smoke detectors in a multi-unit condo building or have the water shut off for more than a minute. Overall, a bargain for what it does.Read more

    This is my sixth shark bite purchase. They are great. They are overpriced however. But this is the best price I found versus big box stores. It is very easy to do. But do buy the little disconnect tool for a few dollars. Plumbers hate sharkbite products. And I can see why because you don’t need them to do simple connections of copper pipe or Pex. All you need is a small pipe cutter that costs 10 bucks, a black Sharpie, a tape measure, and a 5 buck pipe reamer vs. paying a plumber $200+ to solder the pipe. Sharkbite has a 25-year warranty expiration. I will expire well before that, so I don’t care.Read more

    I like the fact that this fitting doesn’t restrict water flow like a regular PEX fitting. I used this to repair a line in my crawl space and it was kind of tight under there so it made it fairly easy for when I was on my back reaching up. I had to make two different repairs and as for now everything is high and dry, can’t speak for the longevity of it yet but for now everything looks great. I’ll be making some future changes in my water line setup and I intend to use SharkBite products for that also.Read more

    I’ve been using these for a few years and love them. Never had one fail yet. I do not like to solder anymore. (I moved into a 1956 house in 1973, when all the copper started leaking). Soldering is nowhere near as clean or as quick as using SharkBite fittings. They are amazing! There are some places where it’s almost impossible to get at the area that needs repair, much less use a propane torch. Yes, SharkBite fittings cost more money, but the time saved (and removing the fire risk) makes them worth the extra you spent. I have not purchased a new propane or MAP-gas bottle for years!Read more
