Answer: 
Hi,
This SharkBite Slip Coupling can only be used on Copper or CPVC. This is a repair fittings for pinhole in copper or cracks in CPVC. If you need to connect copper to PEX, use a 1" coupling. http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-1-in-Brass-Push-To-Connect-Coupling-U020LFA/202270495?keyword=u020lfa

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for gaps I had a sweat fitting that I couldn't get to seal, so I cut it out and used this to replace it. Easy to install (but it's a good idea to practice on some spare pipe first) and it's sealing perfectly. July 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Almost impossible to install Especially in a hard to reach spot. It is not nearly as easy as the videos suggest. The slip ring doesn't budge. I recommend finding a way to use a regular fitting, not the slip coupling. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by For copper pipe only I bought one of these after seeing how easy they are to install in Youtube videos. At the last minute in the store I decided to switched to using pEX instead of some copper pipe I had on hand. When I cam to use the slip i noticed that it is for copper only and not for PEX. You need a regular straight coupling if you are going to use PEX. I understand that there is little to no need for a SLIP coupling when using PEX but I had to go back to HD and get some PEX couplings. I am keeping this though in case I ever get a leak in our copper piping. It is dead easy to cut the leaking part out and insert a new length using this slip coupling. February 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shark Bite is the best! This makes plumbing really easy. Follow instructions and these things are solid. I use Shark Bite wherever possible. The coupling has been in place for a few years with no issues at all. November 13, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Very difficult to install These are supposed to be easy to use...I watched videos and followed instructions, and I'm a fairly competent DIY'er. Getting this thing on a 1/2 inch copper pipe for a simple stop valve installation literally involved blood, sweat, and tears over 3 hours of my life that I'll never get back. The little plastic C-ring they give you to release the teeth is almost useless. Every time I got the coupling on it would clamp on at just a few millimeters in. The first time I finally cut the pipe again, then used a hammer to crush the piece of stuck pipe and pry it out. I tried again and it got stuck again and that time I pulled so hard the coupling finally flew off and hit the basement wall. The third time I used the hammer to bang the slip end onto the pipe. To push it over onto the other pipe I added some W-D 40 and finally, straining on a wrench with every ounce of my strength, I managed to move the coupling close to the line I'd drawn. I'm exhausted. I thought this would be easier than soldering. I'm not super-strong, but I regularly lift and carry more than 50 lbs at my job...I had no idea how much strength Shark Bites require. Next time, I'll save my strength and time and just solder. October 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked better than epoxy! Tips For whatever reason this 1in size doesn't show up in the Home Depot search engine. Notes during installation: 1. 2in of pipe is to be removed- if you are replacing a failed epoxy repair, 2in can be tight. I'd skip the epoxy and go straight to this in the future. 2. Several comments here about how hard it is to slide. I found that the release tool orientation made a difference- it was easier when the square corner side of the release tool faced the sharkbite instead of the rounded corner side. That plus some wiggling and rotating got it to move reasonably well. 3. Read a tip to add a grounding strap across the sharkbite- made sense to me and was worth the extra $5. Two brass grounding clamps and #6 copper wire, both from the electrical department did the job. June 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by works great with a little help Had to replace a section of 1/2" copper pipe that had a pin hole in it. Picked up this to get the two sections of old pipe back together. Well, got the coupling on one section of old pipe fine but had a miserable time trying to use the tool to release the teeth inside so I could slide the coupling back over the other section of pipe. I was working in a small space and couldn't get enough pressure on the thing for it to release. I finally had to cut the copper pipe off with about 1/2" of the copper sticking out of the coupling. With the fitting out of the wall I was able to engage the release tool with enough pressure to get the copper pipe out of the end of it. I then took the coupling and pushed it straight down onto the concrete floor to work the release inside the fitting a few times. I did it on both ends of the fitting. After that it was much easier to disengage the fitting and move it on the pipe! May 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just Fantastic! These push-to-connect or slip couplings from Sharkbite is simply amazing! I had a leaking water softener but to replace the softener head I had to remove all the copper pipes by cutting it because it was all welded together. I cut my pipe at the inlet and outlet end and push these 2 couplings on each end and put everything back together. No leaks and just easy to install. December 6, 2015
