Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

The 3/4 in. SharkBite Push-to-Connect Straight coupling is the easiest way to join copper, CPVC or PEX pipe in any combination with no soldering, clamps, unions or glue. Just insert the pipe and the stainless steel teeth bite down and grip tight, while a specially formulated O-ring compresses to create a perfect seal. Disassembly is just as fast using the simple disconnect tool so fittings and valves can be easily changed and reused. They can even be rotated after assembly for easier installation in tight spaces. SharkBite Fittings are certified for potable water supply and hydronic heating applications. Get SharkBite and get a grip on your next plumbing project.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good. A bit pricey, faster than sweating pipes, No Leaks January 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A real life saver in tight spots. I had to replace an outside faucet. Inside the house the ½ " copper pipe was mounted up in the rafters. If I tried to solder the new connection, a fire would have been a concern. With a ½" coupling, it was a piece of cake. I love SharkBite products. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So Far, So Good. Installed today. Quick install, simple and no leaks so far. Instructions on packing lacking, but verified steps online to make sure I wasn't missing anything. Interestingly, water tank service people used the same fitting to repair a leak I had on the tank piping. April 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked Great 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. September 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty Good 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. August 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very easy to install I followed the instructions to a tee and all went well. I've been periodically checking the coupling for sweating or leaks. All dry and holding. I'm a bit nervous on how the device can still turn on the copper pipe but it's doing what you guaranteed. December 1, 2015
