Customer Questions & Answers

How long is this fitting? How much pipe needs to be cut out? If the two ends of the pipe are directly opposite each other and cannot bent asside, can

Asked by: Charles
The 3/4" slip ball valve is about 4.5" long, and requires a gap of no more than 2.25" between the ends of the pipe. If the gap is much less than 2.25", you won't be able to install it, so there's very little leeway in either direction. Also, you'll have to be able to move the ends of the pipe apart by 1.5" or so (center-to-center), in order to slip the fitting onto one of them. If you can't do that, you might have to cut out a larger section of pipe, use a coupling one side, the slip ball valve on the other (slip side towards the coupling), and a new section of pipe between them. Ditto if you're removing an existing valve that's longer than 2.25" (that was my situation).

Can this valve be used with PEX pipe

Can this valve be used with PEX pipe
Asked by: pex
yes - it works great with PEX, Copper, PVC pipes. It works the same with all. Just make sure the pipe end is clean and round.

1 in. Brass Push-to-Connect Slip Ball Valve is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you'd told me a couple of weeks ago that the main water shutoff to my house was toast and need... If you'd told me a couple of weeks ago that the main water shutoff to my house was toast and needed to be replaced, I'd have been bummed. If you'd told me I was going to replace it myself, I'd have said you were out of your mind. But today, in well under an hour, I cut out the old gate valve on the lateral coming into my house, and installed a new Sharkbite 3/4" slip ball valve, with no problems whatsoever. Now, I'm pretty handy around the house, but beyond pulling/setting a toilet, or swapping out a faucet set, plumbing is NOT my thing. With these new push-to-connect fittings from SharkBite though, the game has changed. Honestly, the whole process couldn't have been more painless. I know I just saved myself a few hundred dollars, and couldn't be more pleased. A few pieces of advice: 1) Get and use the SharkBite deburring/depth tool. If your access to use it is limited (my pipe was less than an inch from a block wall), you can cut it up with a hacksaw. 2) When you prep the ends of your pipes with the tool, go ahead and mark the depth on the pipe with a marker, like they tell you to do in the instructional videos. It takes all the guess work out of knowing whether you have the fitting seated all the way onto the pipe. Seriously, do this. 3) Getting the fittings to release using the disconnect clip can be a little tricky. What worked for me was to press the disconnect clip hard against the fitting, while simultaneously rotating it about a half or quarter turn around the pipe to get the fitting to fully release.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a must have for plumbing emergency When copper pipes freeze it usually is a split about an inch long. Often times you can cut out the damaged area and slide this slip ball valve right into place. Whether you are a home owner or a professional plumber, keeping a couple of these on hand in different sizes will save you time and money on costly repairs. Having a Ball Valve inline does not hurt fluid flow. Aslo if you need to make changes to exiting plumbing and need to install a valve for better control then this is a easy solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Having a ball with this valve I can not say enough good about these Pex fittings. They work flawlessly every single time. I think it is incredible how easy and simple my plumbing projects have become thanks to PEX. I am in the process of re-plumbing my entire house. The folks that originally plumb the house 60 plus years ago used galvanized pipe in long lengths and tight bends that have reduced the water pressure to a trickle. These fittings helped return the pressure to where it needs to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from smart design to ease tight space fitting installation This valve fitting has an extended one side end which allows you to fit this into an unmovable pipe location. Basically you slide this deeply onto the one side, then it has enough excess to allow you to then slide it back onto the opposite side while leaving plenty of pipe for both sides to grab. Now it comes with the release tool (basically a 1/2 found plastic device which you put over the end you want to release then pushing it onto the release collar for releasing). Also it is a sharkbite which means there is no glue (pvc), no solder (copper), and no clamping (pex). These fittings will last very long times, and I have had many installed for many years with no leaks or problems ever. I think they are a great design, and have great seal materials in them allowing them such longevity. I highly recommend this one for those tight spaces with non-moving pipes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best design The slip ball valve is as advertised I had a tight spot on a replacement water heater and the Sharkbite products from connectors to female connectors all worked great. The guys at Home Depot were really helpful and knowledgeable. Great product well worth the price.

Cut out the old one and slip the new one on, as simple as that! There was even some strain on my piping from misalignment and it still worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but SO CONVENIENT and can be easily repurposed I keep telling myself that I should buy a crimper and save a TON of money BUT ... I can install a SharkBite component in seconds. I often times find myself reconfiguring my plumbing as I make improvements to my layout. On a number of occasions I've relocated, repurposed or "returned to inventory" for the next project a SB component and it feels satisfying every time. SB quality is incredible. Wouldn't change a thing. This valve work great. Solid feel. Smooth operation. Positive registration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best solution for the home plumber! Easy to install. Quality Construction I've been using Sharkbite products for nearly a decade now and simply love them. They never fail and they install so easily. Each component is built from high quality brass and steel, no plastic fittings here. I had to install a new water supply on the outside of the house and the only shut off was the main shut off valve by the water meter. This Sharkbite fitting allowed me to quickly add a shut off valve close to the area I was working in and let me turn the water back on to the rest of the house while I worked. Installation of this slip style ball valve could not be easier. You will cut 2 inches of pipe from the line you want to install the valve on. Line up the new valve and slide the long slip end onto the pipe first. Then you line up the remaining open end and shove the pipe into the fitting. Adjust the valve using the included orange release clip until the pipe is bottomed out in the non-slip end. It's all done in 30 seconds. The valve itself operates easily and the handle is large and strong. You get a solid stop whether opening or closing the line. Sharkbite saves you a fortune in plumber costs and gives you confidence that you won't have leaks and satisfaction that you did it yourself. I recommend Sharkbite connections to everyone I know.
