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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! February 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 13, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed - Water seeps from fitting I had to hacksaw my existing 5 copper pipe fittings just behind the nut, leaving pipe stubs in the wall. I tried one Sharkbite because it effectively lengthens the pipe, leaving a longer pipe stub. The other 4 pipe stubs were fitted with conventional compression fittings. Over the next two days, with water turn on but valve turned off, observation showed the conventional compression fittings to be bone dry but the Sharkbite was seeping enough water to wet my index finger. The best feature is the ability to easily remove the Sharkbite with their removal tool. I fitted a compression fitting on the pipe, and the water seepage stopped. April 2, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Be sure it is not used. Bag is insecure. One of the two units I bought turned out to be used, though the bag was not torn. The peg hole must have been used for entry and exit. The unit spat out its pipe when the water was turned on. Packaging has to be made tamper proof. May 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best pipe repair product out there. Easy to use and works great. I had a frozen copper pipe burst in my garage, and tried to call several plumbers in the area. They were all really backed up do to the abnormally below freezing temperatures. So I wen to Home Depot with the intent of finding what what out there to fix myself. The customer Service person introduced me to Shark Bite, and I am glad they did. Easy and works great. February 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very handy to use. Saves a lot of time and is very versatile. These things are so great. You can use it with copper, cpvc, pex in any combination and they are super to use. A great time saver. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by plumber's bff These things are great! Even a non plumber can fix a leak with this! February 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sharkbite Coupling I prefer these push to connect fittings over other brands because the stiffeners are already installed in the fitting otherwise they appear to work just as well as any other. April 7, 2015
