My old valve just gave up after 30 years of use. The SharkBite Brass Valve was my first choice to replace it. Here are the reasons: It is constructed of lead free brass; 2. It connects to a variety of pipe materials; 3. It fits into awkward, tight spaces because it can be rotated; 3. The push-to-connect construction makes installation easy. Perfect!

I installed this SharkBite 3/4 in. Brass push-fit slip ball valve on my main water supply so I can shut off the water coming into my house more conveniently than was previously available. I am still working on finishing my bathroom in my basement and I am going to be installing a new water softener. With this ball valve in the wall of the new bath I will be able to easily turn the water off and on as I need. I will be using the SharkBite connections a lot in the future. I recommend thes for any diy out there.

I have used other Shark bite products and I'm very impressed with the quality of the products, I was replacing the main shut off valve into the house that was leaking from the stem ( Old style gate valve) I was faced with the problem that I would have to dig up the line in the ground or break the stucco, but with this typeof shark bite shut off valve you can install it and with the removal tool back up into the other pipe without having to do any digging or breaking any stucco, Great idea and yes I would recommend, Easy to install with a little knowledge of plumbing and cut out section of pipe as instructed on instructions.

I got this ball valve to replace a shut-off valve to my hot water heater that didn't work anymore when I changed my hot water heater which was shot also. I was just a little curious about the ability of only an o ring preventing the water from leaking out of the valve connections. Although I have been doing plumbing for many years, before I installed this valve, I asked a couple of professional plumbers what they thought about this valve and they both said they didn't trust only an o ring to seal the valve. It may work fine but because of my worries about it and the plumbers feelings I decided to go with a soldered in ball valve instead. Like I said it may work fine but I didn't try it to find out. I may try to use it on an exterior application so incase it does leak it won't damage anything.
