can I use this on 200 psi pvc pipe?

It is the line off my Geo unit going to the return well, it has the older copper o ring type of clamp that you had to squeeze with special pliers their now but it's leaking
Asked by: thomas
This particular one is for polyethylene (PE), HDPE, PEX, and stuff like that. The tan "tooth ring" is for this style of pipe. The white "tooth ring" is for PVC.

Can I use this on hot water baseboard heat

Asked by: steve
There is plastic inside the brass housing. I do not know how hot your water is, but you might want to take that into consideration.

does the coupling reduce the water flux ?

is the inside diameter of the coupling smaller than that of the pipe ?
Asked by: tony
No, the internal diameter of the pipes is not decreased by this adapter. There are thin clear/white plastic inserts (stiffeners?) that go inside the end of the pipe, but it is not noticeable.

3/4 in. Brass Push-to-Connect Coupling is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot water lines--no problem! I bought a pair of the 18" braided stainless lines w/shut-off valves to connect a new hot water heater. I was extremely skeptical at first. Surely anything that said "push on and walk away" was too good to be true. I pushed them on and walked away. Never saw even a hit of a leak. I am completely sold. You will want a simple copper pipe cutter (I got the compact one from Ridgid for ~$12). It gives you a nice, even squared up opening to push the connector on. Still cheaper than a torch, flux, solder, more copper pipe (which you'll still need the cutter for). If it leaks when you put it on, it's not installed correctly. But it's hard to mess these up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Product I am not the world's best plumber! Sometimes, in a far off corner of a tight crawl space, it's just easier to slap on a Shark Bite and get outta there. These connectors are quick & reliable. The Only time we Ever had a problem with a Shark Bite, it was our fault. If you are rushing and don't emery-cloth your pipe smooth enough, the burr on the pipe will carve into the plastic sleeve and cause leaking. A costly mistake. We keep a variety of Shark connectors in a box down cellar. They are a great "quick fix", for those cold January night's. Run down, slap one on, you're done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. A bit pricey, faster than sweating pipes, No Leaks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Years and Still Going They are pricy but the ease of installation is worth it. I think plumbers are losing a lot of business because of these. A DIY wonder! I used these when I installed house and sprinkler shutoff valves from the main lines. It's outside on the corner of the house where I see it everyday. So, I'll see a leak if there's a problem. 5 Years so far and no leaks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast & Convenient yet some issues I have used these in many repairs at my cabin and love the ease of use. However, freezes have caused failure where standard solder joints hold up. The expansion and contraction seems to lossen the "bite" and the coupler just lets loose on one side, even when the pipes have been drained and blown out. I have replaced this one spot three times thinking that I had a slight dip in the line up, but that did not solve it. The last time I pushed up harder on the pipe-so far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great on copper pipe I was installing a sediment filter, and had to tie into some existing copper pipe. First I tried sweating a brass sharkbite fitting to the copper pipe (not always easy), and sure enough it leaked. Replaced it with a push fit coupling and no leaks. I could have tried another sweat fitting, and picked up a mapp gas torch for like $50, but for $10 I had this coupling in, water turned back on, and beer in hand in a matter of minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly Easy toUse I just used these for the first time to repair a frozen/ruptured copper water line inside a finished wall. Before this I would always have used new copper lines and fittings - but by using this (I had a 1/2 and 3/4 line to repair) I only had to make a small hole in the drywall, and the plumbing repair only took about 1/2 hour. These fitting are a little pricey compared to copper, but the transition from copper to PEX and back to copper was amazingly easy and leak free. These would be great for anyone, but a must have of you are not adept at sweating copper fittings.
