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.

Answer: 
The copper just needs to have a straight cut and be de-burred before inserting into the SharkBite push fittings. 1/2″ Pipe Insertion Depth = 15/16”. If you need anymore assistance please contact our customer service center M-F, 8am-5pm at (877) 700-4242.

Answer: 
Drew - SharkBite fittings are rated to 32 Deg F. If using in an area where temperatures will be below that it is recommended that you insulate the pipe and fittings to avoid freezing. Thank you for your interest in our products.

Answer: 
A simple enough rule is, if the space is sufficient to keep the water itself from freezing, the fitting ought to be fine for it. These fittings need their lengths of pex coming into them nice and square, to make them the most leakproof, and the pipes well-supported against normal motions of use and from water-hammer caused by turning mains off and then on again.

A simple enough rule is, if the space is sufficient to keep the water itself from freezing, the fitting ought to be fine for it. These fittings need their lengths of pex coming into them nice and square, to make them the most leakproof, and the pipes well-supported against normal motions of use and from water-hammer caused by turning mains off and then on again. Aside from the viability of SharkBite fittings themselves (which I and colleagues have enjoyed total success with), the issue of keeping under-house plumbing warm enough is a priority in itself: hot-water pipes tend to freeze more readily than the cold side does, but both ought to be well-wrapped with insulation to protect them from heat and from cold, as well as to keep you from paying extra for hot water that can't stay hot in too cold a space.

Pex waterline comes into cabinet as 1/2" then reduces to 1/4" to supply sink faucet. I want to tee off the 1/2" and run 1/2" to the garage while keeping the sink supply.
Looking for suggestions.

Hi,
If you have 1/4" (3/8" OD) PEX supplying your faucet, you could use http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-1-2-in-Push-to-Connect-x-1-2-in-Push-to-Connect-x-3-8-in-Compression-Service-Stop-Tee-24984A/206356285.

Absolutely. I used this fitting about 12" above my water heater and actually went from copper to PEX pipe for the new hose bib I was installing and had great success with it.

Customer Reviews

1/2 in. Brass Push-to-Connect Tee is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from this was my first use a a SharkBite Push-to-Connect connector. Based on the reviews and sales, I... this was my first use a a SharkBite Push-to-Connect connector. Based on the reviews and sales, I'm sure the products work as intended, but my first attempt had leaks at all three openings. I assume it was user error. None-the-less, I reverted back to old fashion solder joints and used compression fittings where soldering was not appropriate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. This product is very easy to use! Works well for pex or copper pipe

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I was doing a plumbing project , installing a new UV light and a house water filter housing and saw the benefits of using Sharkbite products.With all Sharkbite products the pipe inside will spin and I will be able to swivel my UV canister away from the wall and remove it if would need replacement .After installing everything I didn't have enough teflon tape on the threads causing a leak and had to remove the UV unit and yes it did swivel away from its hold down brackets so I could reseal the threads .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They work great, but pricey These work great, they make a sealed tight connection and have some flex also. They are s bear to take off (with the little plastic tool they give you) so measure well to start with. More costly than if you just sweat pipes yourself, but being a weekend diy person, I did some sweating and used some of these connectors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I have the old poly pipes in my home. I had a leak in a T that had been crimped on. I replaced that T with the same type but it still leaked after a few months. I installed this Shark Bite T and no more leaks! highly recommend for any type of flexible pipe or tubing. Be sure to get a Shark Bite Tubing tool to clean up your edges with.
Date published: 2014-01-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not one leak! Replumbing an entire kitchen and bath traditionally with copper and solder, you expect a few leaks during installation, not with SharkBite! Not a single leak! Snaps together like legos, so it's fun too! Having never used this product before, and with just basic instructions from the Home Depot Rep, my husband and I replumbed our entire cabin in under two hours! Worth the initial investment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised me... I'm not going to lie, I was skeptical of this T connector, despite the good reviews it had. I found it hard to believe that a push connector could work well on copper and PEX. But I figured I'd give it a try, since it would be the easiest solution for what I needed - I had to tap into an existing copper line. So I simply cut the copper pipe, pushed each end into the connector, pushed the new PEX line into the branch connector, and sure enough, it's held up excellent. Installation couldn't be easier, and there isn't a drop of water leaking from the connector. Well worth the $10 I spent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These SharkBite fittings really work. This is my first experience using SharkBite push-fit fittings. I used this to tie a new PEX line into an existing copper line. No solder or glue- couldn't be easier. I was skeptical at first but I am sold. Cost is higher but for small jobs this is the way to go.
