Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Transplanted The Only Thing I Could Use For My Project!
In the installation of a Shower Panel, part of this involved joining the existing hot and cold PEX line that connects into the old shower mixing valve into CPVC ends. Seeing as how you can't glue PEX, this fitting was my only solution.
I've used SharkBite fittings before, so I know how to prepare the ends of the line.
After using this fitting, I now have a snug, secure, water tight connection.
Extremely satisfied, and Highly Recommended.

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!

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.

Replaced copper with PEX while renovating shower and best place for transition happened to be in very confined space. Installation of this coupling was as easy as advertised and the no-leak aspect was the frosting on the cake. No problem with fastening to either material (copper or PEX).

Great product. Made tying in to my existing copper system too easy. Not a single drop of water leaks

These shark bite fittings work very well. They are not as easy to disconnect as the you tube vids show, but they really work well to connect copper pipe.
Make sure that the tubes or pipes have enough "give" in them for you to move them at least an inch or more so you can push them into the fittings and align the fittings with the tubing or pipes.

I started using these about 3 years ago. These are perfect when you don't want to have heat near a fixture or valve. I know enough to open valves when soldering, however all it takes is one time of heating a little too much, and one gets a little gun shy.

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.
