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.

Hi Tony,
The fitting is a bit smaller than the PEX, the reduction in flow is less than 1 psi.

1/2 in. Brass Push-to-Connect Coupling is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 54.
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.

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 Fantastic This fitting is a money saver by greatly reducing plumbing work time while still providing great leak resistance at a very competitive price. This is a knockout punch great product.

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 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 excellent product I got my house last fall, was the first house I ever owned with city water, the plumbing was all blown apart, I thought id try these out, used a combination of pex and copper with the shark bite fittings, everything went together good, no leaks, this summer I hooked up my new garden hose and within 5 minutes the end popped off, seemed like the water pressure was high, I went and got my pressure tester and couldn't believe what I saw 165 lbs, called the town they said I need a pressure reducer, just installed one today, these fittings got to be tough with that kind of pressure for a year, I wont hesitate to use them in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freezing pipes in TN! We had a copper water pipe burst in the crawl space t. Temps were still in the 20s today and the crawl space is a frozen wet mess of water and ice. Pipe has obviously been leaking for a while and I only found it after receiving a water bill 4 times higher than usual. Went to Home Depot this morning for the usual copper, flux, solder etc. Decided to try the sharkbite plumbing and boy am I glad. The install took less than 20 mins on my back in the cold wet conditions under the house. The fittings just pushed on and the pex pipe and clips were an easy install to the floor joist. I didn't have to drain the lines and dry them out first like you do when sweating copper fittings. Turns out there were several leaks in that copper pipe at several locations. I would have been extremely frustrated making the repair with copper and sweating only to find out I had to cut and do it again on another section. With the sharkbite a just used the tool to take it back lose. Cut all the copper out under the house and ran all new pex since the roll comes with 100' I had all I needed. Even with finding multiple burst points in the old copper and having to replace way more than I thought the entire install still took less than 20 mins. This repair would have taken hours and a lot more work with copper. I'm sold on these fittings and the pipe. I will never sweat copper again. I'm old school and grew up sweating copper and not wanting to try anything else but what I know works but this is the ticket. Out with the old and in with the new.
