Answer: 
I see no reason why they can't be used for that connection, but beware they are more easily disassembled without the need for evacuating the water line and applying heat to a solder joint.

Hello Fuzzy, If your House pipe is 1/2 inch Copper inlet than No Problem. Upon some reading & research I have found most water main inlets are 3/4 inch to 1 inch. I do believe they make these Sharkbite Ball Valves in those sizes too, Hope this Helped.

Answer: 
I would not recommend doing that. This valve is typically used for the shut off to service the shower valves. It's not designed for everyday use. That kind of wear is for shower valves that have typically been lubed with a plumbers Silicone grease and have the tolerances for everyday use.

Answer: 
It is always best to use a shower valve for this purpose because of the tempering mechanism inside to prevent scalding. The valves can be used to shut off the water supply for both hot and cold water.

Answer: 
No SharkBite fittings and valves are only rated for use on Rigid Copper, PEX, PE-RT, CPVC.
SharkBite fittings require a OD that is consistent, this isn't always the case with soft copper.
I would recommend going with a compression valve for this application.

I'm not sure if it will hold up to Polybutylene. I replaced all my cold water lines with pvc and SharkBites for the added security. In addition, my Home Owner insurance dropped $744 a year. Here in North Florida it was like Christmas when I renewed my insurance.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Installation - Smooth Operation Like most of the other Sharkbite solutions, this ball valve is very easy to use and install (and disassemble using a cheap small tool available from Sharkbite). It installed seamlessly and easily into my plumbing system linking my household plumbing to an exterior irrigation system. No soldering required, no need to evacuate water from the pipes, no concern about using a torch near combustibles, and best of all, NO LEAKS. The pipes must be cleanly cut, no jagged edges. I have used this valve for a while now, and it operates as smoothly, and surely as the day it was installed. I like that the valve orientation can actually swivel after installation (it is not fixed as with a soldered valve), so that the orientation of the handle can be adjusted to accommodate obstructions -- quite forgiving if you haven't otherwise paid attention to the orientation of the valve at the time of installation. Yes, these fittings cost a little more than traditional copper fittings and solder, but for the DIY'r the money saved doing the work yourself, easily justifies using these quality, time saving fittings to say nothing of the peace of mind knowing it's water tight. Highly recommend them. April 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Ball Valve to Shut off Section of Water Pipes for Hose For Winter Made sure I asked our fellow Home Depot Advisers before I allowed myself with plumbing stuff. I look at all the different options to splice into the current wet side of the house & run some needed hose outlets. I was able to cut into my current copper line & place a ball valve before installing the rest of the lines for the house hose outlets. Wanted a shut off Valve easy to access & Positive shut off for winter draining for no freeze pipes for the hose outlets after draining. I Used PVC to run in the crawl space for 3 spots. 2 hose hook ups were installed on the front of the house & 1 for the back. Was able to connect with no leaks & was easier than I expected. Think it out & put it on paper... Go Forth With Confidence! November 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by perfect for adding a valve to an existing pipe the slip version of the valve is designed for adding a valve to an existing pipe. The slip feature allows a small section of pipe to be cut out and then the this product slides onto one side and can then be pulled back to also connect on the other side of the gap. This means you do not have to add a slip pipe in addition to the valve, saving money, time and space. Sharkbite fittings can also be rotated so you should have no problem getting the valve handle in the optimal orientation! Installation could not be easier. Cut the pipe using a proper pipe cutter, but it off with a Sharkbite tool, slid one side of the valve on, use the supplied clip to then pull it back onto the other pipe. Done. Can be used with PVC or copper! No glue, tape or joint compounds needed. Can be resued. December 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by just pushes on. Pex products are so easy to use and this is no exception. This is a 4'' in length with a 4'' handle and is a ball type valve. Each end is a 11/2'' x 1/2'' pex, copper or CPVC pipe usable. The valve simply pushes on to cleanly cut pipe for a minimum of tools needed and no glue or clamps required. A truley easy to install and easy to understand piping system. November 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wish I had invented this product . This is the best plumbing product used in my 75 years of DIY. Makes home repairs a simple job. Clean ends of copper pipe before inserting into fitting. July 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth the extra cost I've learned to keep a couple of these in my plumbing box for the many times that I run into a valve that can't be shut off, needs to be replaced, but the line can't be drained. Soldering in these circumstances is impossible, and the speed of mounting a valve like this can't be beat with a compression fitting. One caution -- debur the copper well, because you can't scratch the o-ring inside. If you do, it won't seal well and you'll have to start all over again. What a solution -- permanent, doesn't cost all that much more than a regular brass valve, and installation is a snap. April 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use and removeable Sometimes a little tricky to remove but overall this is the way to go.... May 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FAST AND EASY- LOVE IT!! This valve is made of superior quality. If you are making a repair, all you need to do is cut out the bad portion of pipe and slide this new valve into place. If, for some reason, you need to take the valve back off, it as simple using the removal tool and sliding it back off. It also, works great for new installations too. If you are not a plumber or not comfortable with soldering, than Sharkbite product s are they to go. I think Sharkbite products could be a little cheaper, but you must remember, many times these products allow the us to do the job without calling a plumber. January 8, 2016
