Hi, This SharkBite Slip Coupling can only be used on Copper or CPVC. This is a repair fittings for pinhole in copper or cracks in CPVC. If you need to connect copper to PEX, use a 1" coupling. http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-1-in-Brass-Push-To-Connect-Coupling-U020LFA/202270495?keyword=u020lfa

1 in. Brass Push-to-Connect Slip Coupling is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Fantastic! These push-to-connect or slip couplings from Sharkbite is simply amazing! I had a leaking water softener but to replace the softener head I had to remove all the copper pipes by cutting it because it was all welded together. I cut my pipe at the inlet and outlet end and push these 2 couplings on each end and put everything back together. No leaks and just easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'll never solder again. A pin hole leak in a 1/2" copper pipe in the ceiling created a "mystery" stain in my Mom's ceiling. After hiring a roofer ($300) a handyman ($100), the source remained a mystery. After opening a hole in the ceiling I found the source - a pin hole leak. Not wanting to solder a coupling sleeve, I checked the local code and purchased a SharkBite slip coupling. It installed easily and solved the leaking problem. Great product SharkBite

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad for tight area I don't know if it's the area or not, but I followed instructions very carefully. The slip end went on perfect. It will not budge now after inserting the other pipe. The pipe is in about a 1/4 inch. Not nearly far enough. I've tried everything. WD40, tapping with a wrench, now I'm stuck. It won't go on all the way, and won't come off either. So frustrating, been at this hours. I'll try again tomorrow

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pipe repair is not the only occasion using it. Mine was purchased to connect the newly installed ... Pipe repair is not the only occasion using it. Mine was purchased to connect the newly installed whole-house filter to the house water line in early January, 2017. This slip coupling provided two required features in my plumbing. The FPT Fitting on my filter system was plastic and soldering next to it was simply not an option due to the needed elevated temperature. Without soldering, I was able to fit everything in a tight space. The slip coupling allowed me to tighten the pipe-thread joints a little more and seal any hairline leak/dripping during installation. Free-rotation and adjustable insertion length were the key in this aspect. Conventional compression fitting only could have fulfilled the free-rotation aspect but not the flexibility in insertion length. What is important to remember, though, is to keep enough clearance between the slip end and the next fitting for inserting the orange disconnect tool as shown in the photo. The disconnect tool would be inserted in between while reducing the pipe insertion depth and allowing the longer distance/gap when the pipe-thread joint was tightened. I had to take the joints apart about five times during installation. It actually was not easy to disconnect with the disconnect clip but could be managed. I am personally very satisfied with the fitting and how well it had worked out for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked better than epoxy! Tips For whatever reason this 1in size doesn't show up in the Home Depot search engine. Notes during installation: 1. 2in of pipe is to be removed- if you are replacing a failed epoxy repair, 2in can be tight. I'd skip the epoxy and go straight to this in the future. 2. Several comments here about how hard it is to slide. I found that the release tool orientation made a difference- it was easier when the square corner side of the release tool faced the sharkbite instead of the rounded corner side. That plus some wiggling and rotating got it to move reasonably well. 3. Read a tip to add a grounding strap across the sharkbite- made sense to me and was worth the extra $5. Two brass grounding clamps and #6 copper wire, both from the electrical department did the job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not easy to install I needed a quick fix for my sprinkler outlet and tried this product. I watched the video and got my pieces cut and went to install. The barbs never bit as designed even after making sure the pipe was inserted correctly. I wasting a lot of time trying over and over. I noticed the barbs were flattened. When I tried turning on the water both ends leaked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharkbite Slip Coupling used with pex I was hoping to use this slip coupling to repair the copper water main entering the house. Due to some settling, I had to use a three foot section of 1" pex to make the repair. The packaging for this product says it is for copper or cpvc, but it does not indicate pex. I can report it does work with pex on the "non-slip" end of the coupling. Just make sure the plastic pex stiffener is installed in the pex tubing and then slip the coupling up to the stop like a normal Sharkbite fitting.
