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 52 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 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 The Only Thing I Could Use For My Project! 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. April 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! July 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic This fitting is a money saver by greatly reducing plumbing work time while still providing great leak resistance at a very competitive price. This is a knockout punch great product. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Game changer for DIY plumbing Replaced copper with PEX while renovating shower and best place for transition happened to be in very confined space. Installation of this coupling was as easy as advertised and the no-leak aspect was the frosting on the cake. No problem with fastening to either material (copper or PEX). July 5, 2016
