This item makes instillation very simple. It is a great idea instead of having to get a plumber

Shark Bite makes plumbing easy. I only had to sweat one joint and would not have had to do that, if 24" SharkBites had been available. Great product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sirdave Hot Water Heater supply connectors - Don't Buy!
Unfortunately, the chlorine in your water will deteriorate the rubber lining inside the flex hoses after a year or two. Within two years, I had rubber flecks inside a new hot water tank and coming out my bath tub faucet. These cause a problem in plugging up faucet aerators and washing machine supply valves... we had to have a new supply valve installed in our washing machine. I replaced the flex hoses with copper pipe and the problem went away. This has happened to quite a few others...just do an internet search. SharkBite should take this type off the market!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JasWil Good product - Incorrectly named
I'm sure it works well. People are really happy with it. However, it's 1/2" pipe-side, 3/4" screw-side... I need 1/2" for my Tankless heater. NOWHERE does it say this in any part of the description - yet it does say several times "Connector 1/2". So this is a negative review against HD for not having correct information on the website!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BeckyS Great replacement for those who don't solder
When it came time to do some maintenance on our hot water heater, we were looking for the easiest solution possible. We didn't want to buy the materials to solder the connection, so the shark bite connector provided a great option for us. Very easy to use for beginners and experienced alike. Will definitely use more shark bite products in the future!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Stan Sizes are misleading
The product works fine but the sizes are misleading. The 1/2" size doesn't mean much in both this and all other SharkBite fittings. The water heater end is for 3/4" NPT. The point of use water heater I was fitting it to had 1/2" nipples. The other end and all other SharkBite fittings I purchased stated they were 1/2" and would take copper tubing as well as other tubing. When you buy tubing or tube fittings, you buy them by the outside diameter. SharkBite must be talking about the inside diameter because their 1/2" fittings require 5/8" tubing. I returned all of the other SharkBite fittings I purchased and used compression fittings instead. On the hoses, I had to use 1/2" x 3/4" bushings at the heater end and pieces of 5/8' tube with 5/8" x 1/2" compression adapters at the 5/8" tube end. SharkBite needs to make it more clear the tube sizes that go with their fittings.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phillipians4vs13 Performed exactly as expected!
When I bought my new water heater, I needed new connections. Used these since shark bite has never let me down before.
This time they still haven't let me down. Just wish the cost per piece would go down but then again it's better than soldering 5 times and having your wife stress about burning the house down with the torch...
So yeah, great value :)
