Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 31, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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 September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing invention I used 2 of them with 5' copper pipe and it only took about 45 minutes to repair a leaking section. September 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for gaps I had a sweat fitting that I couldn't get to seal, so I cut it out and used this to replace it. Easy to install (but it's a good idea to practice on some spare pipe first) and it's sealing perfectly. July 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by For copper pipe only I bought one of these after seeing how easy they are to install in Youtube videos. At the last minute in the store I decided to switched to using pEX instead of some copper pipe I had on hand. When I cam to use the slip i noticed that it is for copper only and not for PEX. You need a regular straight coupling if you are going to use PEX. I understand that there is little to no need for a SLIP coupling when using PEX but I had to go back to HD and get some PEX couplings. I am keeping this though in case I ever get a leak in our copper piping. It is dead easy to cut the leaking part out and insert a new length using this slip coupling. February 1, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Almost impossible to install Especially in a hard to reach spot. It is not nearly as easy as the videos suggest. The slip ring doesn't budge. I recommend finding a way to use a regular fitting, not the slip coupling. June 21, 2016
