Works great, easy to install, no leaks. I used it to attach my new tankless water heater to the supply line, and I even used a separated tool (not included) to separate and reattached the sharkbite when I put up new dry wall. No leaks at all. One word of caution: only attach a shark bite to a straight length of pipe. Do not use it near a bend.

Easy To Install
Makes A Water Heater Install Easy. No Leaks, And No Worrys.

Easy to install and worth the price...no need to have disconnect tool unless you want to move the part
I have used Sharkbites (including the ball valve) all over my property with no issues. One reviewer was upset because they thought they needed the disconnect tool to install Sharkbites. Not so. You only need it if you want to remove a part you already have installed. The only issue I have had is trying to install a fitting over pipe that has held frozen water. The water permanently expanded the pipe so the Sharkbite would not slide over it easily. Would have had this problem with any copper

My water heater's T&P valve had been leaking for awhile. I replaced it but it didn't make any difference. I added this tank on the cold water line just after it enters the house. No more problems.

Nice DIY Project
Easy to install. You will need a water pressure gauge ($10) to determine the pressure of your water supply and an air pump to properly balance the pressure on the air side of the diaphragm, but there are videos on-line that show you how. Not difficult if you follow the instructions included. Be sure to get the right size expansion tank by checking the guide in the store.

Design flaws. Had to take a hammer to it to get the legs in.
Seems like it will endure. There should be notes or instructions that state it is important to screw screws and bolts in very tight to keep it stable. I had screwed them in but when my husband saw it he had me screw it in even tighter. He said with his plumbers experience he found that it could fail or not be as stable if not screwed in tightly. Also, I had to return the first one that I bought because it was missing all the screws and

This water heater stand was very easy to assemble in about 15 minutes. It is very sturdy once assembled and all bolts are tightened. It gets the water heater up off of the floor to allow room to hook up the secondary drain line coming off of the drain pan.
Sure, one can build a stand using one's own materials, but not in 15 minutes. How much is your time worth? It made sense for me to just use this prefabricated stand.

The stand was fantastic. It was easy to assemble and only took about 10 minutes (most of the time spent getting the tools). It is sturdy and provided the perfect size and height for the job.
This kit is well thought out, complete and well worth the price.
I bought 3 of these E-75 WWatts water heater safety straps this morning at the local Home Depot and 6 hours after getting my tools out I had them all installed. I was concerned when I bought these as to whether the straps would fit the larger tanks. I had one tank 22’ OD, one 23” OD and the largest was 26” OD. One tank was a corner mount and the other two were effectively against a flat wall. One wall was 2”x 4” wood studs will with sheetrock and the other walls were in a pump house with 2”x 4”
... read more wood studs ½” ridge insulation and ½” plywood. The lag screws were plenty long. There was plenty of strapping and it would likely work on a 32” OD tank.
I usually stay away from these types of do-it-yourself kits because often I end up going back for something to make it work. This kit was excellent and the design is very adaptable to different tank installations. I found the instructions simple to follow and the material of good quality. If you are an average handy person around the house, I believe you will find this kit very doable. You may want to wear some light weight gloves to help prevent cuts from the galvanized strap. I would certainly recommend this kit to anyone wanting to secure water tanks or similar.

Great strapping kit.
This is the best strapping kit available right now. I hope Home Depot continues to stock this item.

great product, a lot of options for different types of installation, good detailed instructions, fairly easy to install, would definitely recommend!
The hoses were good quality and easy to install. The gas line is just too short. Had to go back and buy a longer one for my installation.

We needed to purchase additional hose because of the height of the only stand you had for sale. Other than that it was a very good package.
The only problem we encountered was created by the very tall stand that we had to purchase. It created a few problems with the installation because of the space that we had available.

Makes it easy
The local Home Depot carried a different brand kit that contained the same parts. Since the replacement heater was larger. I had to cut the copper lines going to the heater. This kit made installation a cinch. The compression fittings worked great. No need trying to figure out what fittings or lines you need, everything was in the kit.
I installed this under a new refrigerator. Hopefully (!) it will warn of impending doom for the all too expensive hardwood floor. I like the cord implementation for the moisture sensor, it allows for a much greater area and increases the chance of proper surface contact to alarm for water. The connection cord is 6' so the alarm can set out of sight on top of the refrigerator. I tested the device before installation and was impressed with the cord's ability to detect water and the voice of the

alerts with a loud intermittent beep
Very sensitive to the slightest amount of moisture. Quickly resets when you wipe dry the sensor cable. Recommend using the 8ft extension cable (sold separately).

Water Leak Alarm
The unit was very easy to install and reasonably priced. Just like smoke alarms--just remember to change the battery.
I used these connectors to replace a water heater in my home. These connectors were simple to use and made hooking up the new water heater a breeze. I was a bit skeptical as these are used to replace copper tubing with sweated connections and elbows but I had used a similar connector on a sprinkler line with great success. I followed the easy instructions in preparing the cut off copper tubing and monitored the connectors for roughly 1 month and found no signs of leaking or failure. I am a fan for life

Very please with the connector.
installation was very easy and fast. all went well no problems.

Push to connect water line
Very easy to use, used to replace my water heater hot &cold lines
I purchased two of these gauges to put before and after a whole house sediment filter so I would know if there was an increasing pressure delta during water flow between the supply and house sides of the filter. The gauges are easy to read and the installation was very simple. I didn't check the accuracy of the pressure readings since what I am really looking for is simply a delta between the two gauges rather than precise pressure readings.

Easy to install and accurate. I added one of these to keep an eye on the pressure of the system inside the house.

I installed two of these with a new filter (one before the filter and one after). They don't sell these anywhere in hardware/plumbing stores and I was very happy to find this online. It works as both a coupler and pressure gauge which is exactly what I needed. As for installation - it couldn't get much easier. You cut the pipes, deburr them and push the fittings into the pipe. No leaks at all. Sharkbites are a plumbing DIY'ers best friend.
