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!

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.

I used a couple of these to repair a leaking pipe union between some ceiling joists. Using these could get pricey if you needed more than a few of them. Still, they are way cheaper than a plumber, you won't burn down your house using them, and most importantly, they don't leak.

Most of the installations, we used five of these couplings, went without issue. We had one coupling that we needed to separate from the metal pipe but could not separate it using their plastic separating tool so we had to give up, cut the pipe to remove the coupling and replace the coupling. But the connections, once made, were flawless.

In the installation of a Shower Panel, part of this involved joining the existing hot and cold PEX line that connects into the old shower mixing valve into CPVC ends. Seeing as how you can't glue PEX, this fitting was my only solution.
I've used SharkBite fittings before, so I know how to prepare the ends of the line.
After using this fitting, I now have a snug, secure, water tight connection.
Extremely satisfied, and Highly Recommended.

We are doing a kitchen remodel, and I installed new cabinets. The plumbing leading to the sink came up through the cabinet floor in an odd way, and I needed to make some changes to the plumbing configuration. Because of the way it was plumbed, sweating and soldering new joints would have been problematic. I decided to try these SharkBite couplers, and bought two of them. I was really impressed at how great they worked, and got me up and running in no time! Love this idea!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Meredith Shark bite is worth every penny!
Had a busted galvanized pipe in the crawl space from the fire department surging water on a fire hydrant in front of our house. This created a domino effect to all the rest of our pipes. The firefighter that came to inspect the damage told us about pex and sharkbite. We had to replace all the galvanized piping and pex and sharkbite made it a cheap and easy project! Couldn't be happier seeing as that my husband and I replaced it all ourselves in our crawl space! Buy it! Worth EVERY penny!
