Product Overview

The 1/2 in. SharkBite Push-to-Connect Elbow allows you to make a 90 Degree connection to any combination of 1/2 in. Copper, CPVC or PEX Pipe. SharkBite fittings are the easiest way to join pipe and do not require soldering, clamps, unions, glue or tools to complete the job. 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. SharkBite Fittings are certified for potable water supply and hydronic heating applications. Get SharkBite and get a grip on your next plumbing project.

Can these be use behind drywall? Or does it need to be open?

Asked by: DIYShowerRemodel
It depends on your local codes. Some approve a non-accessible installation while others do not.

The parent company is Australian. Soon items will be made in Alabama. It appears that the current supply comes from Australia. I don't have a package with me but it may be on it.

is this good for hot water? or outdoor use?

I had a leaky pipe that goes to the water heater, and the leak is the 90 degree elbow, I had it replace and it cost me $150, but if I had used this elbow sharkbite to fix the leak, will it work same as the regular fittings? I attached a photo just to show. I ask this questions just incase the leak happen again. thanks in advance.
Asked by: nickname
Yes, these work fine with hot water and outdoors. I think you'd want the 3/4" size for a water heater, though, not the 1/2". They would slide onto the copper pipes.

If you have never replaced a pipe or you're a first time home owner like myself. This product is a life saver. I have a torch, flux, and so on and so forth, but as I said I've never really used it them. With the SharkBite products there is no need for torches, flux, anything like that. Simply cut, clean, and place the PUSH to Connect products and your done. At first I was like,"Great, this is gonna cost hundreds if I have to call a plumber." Went to my FAVORITE store ever,,, that would be the Home Depot, picked up some copper pipe, a couple connectors and a new elbow. The entire repair took less then 10 Mins. Plus the wife will thinks I'm a genius. Awesome Product.

I used this fitting recently as part of a new plumbing assembly in my laundry room. I used PEX piping and had no leaks. Instructions say the tubing should go in an inch, I found they go in about .8" or so. Although a bit pricey, these fittings and PEX made easy work. It took me an hour and a half to complete the job. From the photo, all I had left was securing the drop ear elbows for the clothes washer valves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Call a plumber or Sharkbite... A co-worker reviewed photos of the supply line to a a hose bib that needed replacing and suggested Sharkbite products. I decided to put two bibs in place of the one and raise them as the original was only 5 inches from the ground. I built the duplex assembly with copper and sweated the connections. I then cut the supply line, installed a coupler, two elbows and done... oops... not quite yet. The Sharkbite elbow could not support the assembly (it allowed it to rotate), so I attached a board to the house and the assembly to it. Everything is leak free! A plumber would have cost me way over the $50 or so I spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing since sliced bread... The guy who invented these should be given the Nobel prize in plumbing. These adapters make any plumbing job a DIY job. I had to replace the outside faucet in my house that was all soldered copper connections and these made it a 1 hour replacement job. If I didn't cut my finger on the PEX cutting tool, this job would have been no sweat and no blood.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from upgrade is not great This product has just been upgrated and I believe not that well. I've used this product for years. The older version (through now) was easy on/easy off and water tight. The new one has a smaller profile, which looks nice, and is easy on/water tight. But if for any reason you want to take it off, good luck. I struggled with taking several of these off adjacent pex tubes. It is often the case that you will need to remove a tube, eg, if it is too long or if you need to change your configuration for any reason. If you are doing a bigger job, the main reason to spend so much more than the price of crimping is the flexibilty of reomving the connector from the tube without cutting the tube. In sum, you might as well crimp your tubes if you are going to use this solution, which is, for many, not something they'll want to hear.
