Can i use it for copper to pex pipe? I know there is one fitting for that type but it is too short

Asked by: Andrew
Our slip couplings are only to be used on copper or CPVC. Can not install it on PEX pipe because the slip feature does not allow the PEX stiffener to be installed in the fitting.

does it matter what direction slip end goes on when pipe is in vertical direction?

Asked by: Novice
Hi Novice, The "slip end" is only an indicator of which end does not have a tube stop and has the ability to slide back and forth over the pipe to make the connection. The "slip end" can be installed on either pipe in vertical or horizontal direction.

Is it OK to use this product to repair a hot water copper line under a slab.

I read a comment that because of hot water, minerals in the water and the heat will over time wear down the rubber seal components in the valve. About to break the slab now so if have the wrong fix, I would appreciate being told good advice. Thank you.
Asked by: Chucky
If you are breaking the slab, I would recommend replacing all the copper. Over time, the lime in the soil will deteriorate the copper and also the shifting of concrete will create pinholes in the copper. It is not recommended to use SharkBite fittings under concrete. However, wrapping the fitting in 10 mil plastic will protect the fitting from minerals in the soil/concrete. SharkBite PEX can be used under concrete as long as a sleeve is installed around the pipe at the entrance and exit of the slab. If you have any questions, please call our customer service line at 1-800-435-4654.

3/4 in. Brass Push-to-Connect Slip Coupling is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Several reviews of Shark Bites in various sizes, particularly the 3/4", complain about the diffic... Several reviews of Shark Bites in various sizes, particularly the 3/4", complain about the difficulty found in sliding the coupling over the existing copper pipe. Here is an easy way to install it that will completely eliminate the use of wrenches, hammers, etc, not to mention profanity. It's all in the preparation! This prep technique takes about 5 to 6 minutes but it makes all the difference in the world. 1) Cut off 2" of the damaged pipe. 2) Smooth the cut using either a bevel tool or emery cloth and sand paper/cloth. Start with the emery cloth that is used when soldering. Smooth the outer edge of the cut and then give it another pass with 320-grade sand paper. 3) Use the emery cloth to clean approx 3 to 4 in. of the pipe for the sliding end and 2+ inches to the other end of the pipe until bright and smooth. Wipe with clean rag. 4) Follow up with 320-grade paper on both sides until smooth. Wipe with rag. 5) Follow up with 600-grade sand/cloth paper. Wipe with rag. 6) Give final polishing with 2000-grade sand paper. The pipe should shine like a mirror by now. 7) Wipe vigorously with rag again. 8) KEY STEP: Spray the inside of the Shark Bite connector and both ends of the pipe with a dry lubricant such as Liquid Wrench of Blaster. Do it approx 2 to 3 times. Be generous. 9) The 'slide end' of the connector will slide over the pipe like it's on bearings. 10) Line up the end of the Shark Bite with the end of the receiving pipe and, using the Release Tool included in the kit, you will be able to pull the Shark Bite 1" over the pipe easily in a matter of seconds without the need for banging it with a wrench of cussing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tricky but worth it As others have mentioned, getting the coupling to "slip" once both ends are inserted can be tricky. I imagine this is due to how tightly it fits the exterior of the pipes. I was able to pull/twist/wiggle it up about 3/4 of the way, and got it the last 1/4 by lightly tapping it with a wrench. I'd recommend ensuring the exterior lips on both cut ends are as smooth as possible (I sanded mine somewhat, but could have done more). That said, compared to soldering copper, this is a no-brainer purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'll never solder again. A pin hole leak in a 1/2" copper pipe in the ceiling created a "mystery" stain in my Mom's ceiling. After hiring a roofer ($300) a handyman ($100), the source remained a mystery. After opening a hole in the ceiling I found the source - a pin hole leak. Not wanting to solder a coupling sleeve, I checked the local code and purchased a SharkBite slip coupling. It installed easily and solved the leaking problem. Great product SharkBite

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Fantastic! These push-to-connect or slip couplings from Sharkbite is simply amazing! I had a leaking water softener but to replace the softener head I had to remove all the copper pipes by cutting it because it was all welded together. I cut my pipe at the inlet and outlet end and push these 2 couplings on each end and put everything back together. No leaks and just easy to install.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad for tight area I don't know if it's the area or not, but I followed instructions very carefully. The slip end went on perfect. It will not budge now after inserting the other pipe. The pipe is in about a 1/4 inch. Not nearly far enough. I've tried everything. WD40, tapping with a wrench, now I'm stuck. It won't go on all the way, and won't come off either. So frustrating, been at this hours. I'll try again tomorrow

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea for mending a broken pipe. This is a great idea, but installing it was difficult. It's difficult to release the slip end once you get the slip end in and the pipes lined up. The slip fit tool didn't seem to release the coupling very well. I had to hit the tool with a wrench to get it to move. All seems to work fine now. I wish it was as easy as the video shows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not all that easy I read the reviews, I looked at all the options I could find. I have used other brands of push fittings but this one seems to be the best. The slip end is clearly marked.. But SLIP is not a word that I would use. I marked the one inch line on one side and then tried to slide the 3/4 in coupling up the other side. I finally figured out that it HAS to be completely lined up (and I am not sure how to verify that) before it will slide up the pipe. Then with the tool in place I started pushing, pulling, cursing and what ever else I could think of. Ya, right!!!! I then got out my 12" crescent wrench and tapped (not very hard) while lining up the receiving end and kept tapping until it hit the mark. The wrench made all the difference to getting it to move and with the wrench it was fairly easy. Turned on the water and not a drop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT! EASY TO USE< QUALITY DEVICE I tried the Blue Hawk product from Lowes first. It was worthless. This product installed in about 30 seconds and did not leak. Makes repairs and hooking 2 pipes together where you don't have much room very easy. I highly recommend. This is a product that works. Easy to slide on and pull into position on second pipe.
