Product Overview

The 1/2 in. SharkBite Push-Fit x FNPT Adapter allows you to make a connection to 1/2 in. pipe using a push-fit connection and then gives you a 1/2 in. Female NPT Adapter on the opposite end. SharkBite fittings are 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.

Answer: 
Yes, it can be used on 1/2 in. galvanized pipe that is threaded. The fit from female end of this product to male end of galvanized pipe will be perfect (assuming you use plumber's tape correctly).

Hi plumberquestions123,
Yes, shark bite fittings will work with galvanized pipe, the pipe thread end will accept galvanized pipe and of course the slip fit ends only works with copper or pex tubing.
Mike,

Both ends of this adapter are meant to fit 1/2 in? Meaning that the push end will fit a 1/2" pex pipe and the brass female adapter will receive a 1/2" male threaded fitting, correct?

Answer: 
You are correct. This adapter will connect to copper, CPVC, or PEX with the push-to-connect end and the FNPT side will connect to a MNPT fitting.

I pushed this onto a mom threaded copper pipe and realized it didn't push on far enough for me. Trying to use a wrench, pliers along with WD 40 haven't worked for me. Any ideas?

I have a new sillcock with male threads, and need a female 1/2 inch adapter for use with polybutylene pipe . There are some adapters which mention polybutylene pipe, but this one doesn't mention polybutylene, it mentions "Use to connect to any combination of copper, PEX, CPVC, or PE-RT pipes."

Answer: 
Hi,
SharkBite only offers a polybutylene to Copper/PEX/CPVC transition fitting in 1/2" and 3/4." The recommended way to make this connection is to first transition to Copper/PEX/CPVC and then connect the female adapter to the Copper/PEX/CPVC.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nothing short of miraculous I was replacing a 4 way shower diverter and did not want to solder. I cut the 1/2 copper pipes square, de-burred them with the sharkbite tool, added Teflon tape to the threads and popped them on. It was a tight spot, so had to modify the de-burr tool slightly so that it would rotate in the limited space (I cut the tool leaving just the 1/2 inch end). One challenge was that the hot and cold pipes (left and right) were fixed, so there was no room to get the last sharkbite connection on (see pic). No worries, sharkbite has a two inch slip coupling that did the job. I cut out a 3 inch section of pipe, shortened this to 2 inches and put this on the non-slip end of the slip coupler and slipped it on which left enough space to get the last connector in. Attached the last sharkbite to other end of my 2" pipe on the slip connector, pulled it onto the cold water thread with the tool provided and tightened. Voilà! Before I turned on the water to test the pressure I was doubtful it would hold. The connectors spin on the pipe when you tighten them! What!? I was dumbfounded, not a drop! All connections were tight and the diverter is firmly held in place. Amazing product! A miracle indeed. We've used the shower for a week and still no leaks. January 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Great idea, good product as long as you don't want a perfect seal This product does connect two pipes very easily. Unfortunately, the seal is not perfect. There is a steady drip from this product. I used this product to connect a new faucet (outdoors). All of my couplings and other screw-in pieces are great, no leaks. But there is a steady drip coming from this Sharkbite side of this product. February 15, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great to put in, very very hard to take out Goes in very easy with no leaks, no open flame and minimal pipe prep. Problem is when you try and take them out they just do not want to come out. Dry fit my pieces getting ready to solder an elbow. When I tried to remove the Sharkbite so it wouldn't get hot it would not budge. Soldered the elbow anyway and it all worked out fine but these things are supposed to come back off. June 17, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Spinning limits range of applications I bought an elbow, a female connector, and a male connector to replace a tub stubout that had disconnected at the solder joint in the wall. All went well with the SharkBite connectors until I tried to screw on the faucet. Because the copper tubing can spin there was no way to tighten the faucet. I now have to replace two of the connectors with others that do not spin. I am not looking forward to removing the sharkbit connectors--they are very difficult to remove even with the removal tool, and with their location in the wall it is very difficult to get the appropriate leverage on the tool. SharkBite needs to a better job warning people about applications. They tout the spinning as a feature, which it certainly can be in some applications--but in other applications it renders these connectors useless. On the positive side the connectors did not leak at all and I will use them in the future when I can. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Plumbing has never been so much fun! My husband and I recently purchased a cabin that was built back in the 1940's, it needed a total gut job down to the studs! Needless to say, that included plumbing. We received several estimates over $2500 to replumb it. We have done traditional plumbing before and knew we could do it ourselves...but it's such a pain! After speaking with an amazing Home Depot Rep about the SharkBite system, we decided to give it a try. It took us less than an hour to replumb the entire bathroom, and another 20 minutes to tie in the kitchen! And it was fun! The initial investment seems expensive, but compared to traditional copper, plus the added expense of a plumber, this was worth it's weight in gold! June 19, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth Every Penny I replaced my shower valve and these worked great. It saved me from having to buy flux, solder, etc. The one thing they don't tell you on the package is if you need to remove them to adjust the pipe you have to buy the removal tool. But it is only like $2. Been using it for about a month now no leaks. January 31, 2012
