Product Overview

The 1/2 in. x 18 in. SharkBite Water Heater Connector with Integrated Ball Valve allows you to easily connect your Hot and Cold Water Supply lines to your Water Heater. After applying pipe thread tape to the MIP nipples on your water heater, thread the FIP end of the Water Heater connector onto the tank and tighten with channel locks. Then simply push the SharkBite Push-Fit end onto Copper, PEX, or CPVC pipes and your Water Heater is connected. The Integrated Ball Valve on the SharkBite Water Heater Connector provides a quarter-turn, single handle shut-off to the water supply. The braided stainless steel lines are available in different lengths from 12 in. - 24 in. (without Ball Valve) and are also available in Corrugated Stainless Steel. SharkBite Water Heater Connectors will decrease the amount of time and effort needed to install a Water Heater in your home and are the fastest way to complete your project.

what size is the flexible hose 1/2 or 3/4

Asked by: plumber2
Both. You can get whatever combination you need as well as Sharkbite fittings to adapt to odd angles. Note in my pic the left side hose where I needed to use a 90 degree elbow to make it work perfectly. This was a 3/4 to 1/2 adaption.

I was a bit skeptical as every fitting I ever executed was sweated. The thing worked as advertised. You cut the pipe square, debur with sandpaper and push...it all there is to it! The water heater replacement with these connections took just minutes over an hour...on New Year Day.
