Product Overview

The 1/2 in. SharkBite Push-to-Connect Straight coupling is the easiest way to join copper, CPVC or PEX pipe in any combination with no soldering, clamps, unions or glue. 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 I use this on 200 psi pvc pipe?

It is the line off my Geo unit going to the return well, it has the older copper o ring type of clamp that you had to squeeze with special pliers their now but it's leaking
Asked by: thomas
This particular one is for polyethylene (PE), HDPE, PEX, and stuff like that. The tan "tooth ring" is for this style of pipe. The white "tooth ring" is for PVC.

My dad wants to know how long will The half inch ball valve will last on the copper pipe in his basement

Asked by: Bobpie
Really hard to say. I have had shark bite fittings that are 4 years old and still going, but i just had one fail in 6 months. probably depends a lot on your specific application. watch for high pressure or pressure fluctuations. that seemed to do me in.

1/2 in. Brass Push-to-Connect Coupling is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Product I am not the world's best plumber! Sometimes, in a far off corner of a tight crawl space, it's just easier to slap on a Shark Bite and get outta there. These connectors are quick & reliable. The Only time we Ever had a problem with a Shark Bite, it was our fault. If you are rushing and don't emery-cloth your pipe smooth enough, the burr on the pipe will carve into the plastic sleeve and cause leaking. A costly mistake. We keep a variety of Shark connectors in a box down cellar. They are a great "quick fix", for those cold January night's. Run down, slap one on, you're done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Oddball Locations We are doing a kitchen remodel, and I installed new cabinets. The plumbing leading to the sink came up through the cabinet floor in an odd way, and I needed to make some changes to the plumbing configuration. Because of the way it was plumbed, sweating and soldering new joints would have been problematic. I decided to try these SharkBite couplers, and bought two of them. I was really impressed at how great they worked, and got me up and running in no time! Love this idea!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot water lines--no problem! I bought a pair of the 18" braided stainless lines w/shut-off valves to connect a new hot water heater. I was extremely skeptical at first. Surely anything that said "push on and walk away" was too good to be true. I pushed them on and walked away. Never saw even a hit of a leak. I am completely sold. You will want a simple copper pipe cutter (I got the compact one from Ridgid for ~$12). It gives you a nice, even squared up opening to push the connector on. Still cheaper than a torch, flux, solder, more copper pipe (which you'll still need the cutter for). If it leaks when you put it on, it's not installed correctly. But it's hard to mess these up.

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 5 Years and Still Going They are pricy but the ease of installation is worth it. I think plumbers are losing a lot of business because of these. A DIY wonder! I used these when I installed house and sprinkler shutoff valves from the main lines. It's outside on the corner of the house where I see it everyday. So, I'll see a leak if there's a problem. 5 Years so far and no leaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely easy to use I had to move a water supply line to install a new toilet. I found the Sharkbite range of products and I am so impressed I tried to see if I could buy stock in the company. (I don't think they are public.) I cut the existing pipe, smoothed off the cut end with the orange sharkbite tool and then slipped this coupling on. I ran PEX tubing up through the floor to the bathroom above. Each item just pushes on in place and not a drop of water came out when we switched the water supply back on. Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shark bite is worth every penny! Had a busted galvanized pipe in the crawl space from the fire department surging water on a fire hydrant in front of our house. This created a domino effect to all the rest of our pipes. The firefighter that came to inspect the damage told us about pex and sharkbite. We had to replace all the galvanized piping and pex and sharkbite made it a cheap and easy project! Couldn't be happier seeing as that my husband and I replaced it all ourselves in our crawl space! Buy it! Worth EVERY penny!
