Questions & Answers

How do this connectors work?

Meaning the sharkbite type.
Asked by: Rene
Inside the fitting there is a set of teeth that face towards the inside of the fitting. When you insert the pipe into the fitting it slides into two o-rings and the teeth grab the pipe so that it cannot pull out. There is a special tool used to release the teeth so it can be taken off.

Can anyone tell me how to disconnect the SharkBite water lines ? I am going to be replacing the lines on my water heater.
Asked by: RH
You will need a Sharkbite release tool. Home Depot stocks them. Instructions are included with the tool. Relatively inexpensive and easy to use. Just use a little penetrant ahead of time to help break it loose.

3/4 in. Push-to-Connect x 3/4 in. FIP x 24 in. Braided Stainless Steel Water Heater Connector is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 315.

I bought two of these connectors to hook up my new water heater in February of 2015. I did not have an issue with the product until this last week (July 2017) when we started noticing black flecks in our hot water. I went back to the reviews here on Home Depot and found individuals reporting the same issue so I decided to disconnect the water heater supply lines and investigate. What I found is that the line connected to the hot water side had started to deteriorate. Due to that I removed both lines and replaced with copper instead. I have never had any issues with the other Sharkbite fittings but I would not recommend these for a water heater install.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works, then you get black rubber pieces in tub. Easy to install, worked for a couple years. Then gf tried to take a bath and a bunch of black rubber stuff came out of the faucet, then all the other faucets with the hot water side. Traced it back to the shark bite connection from hot water heater. Replaced with 2 corrugated steel lines, but I replaced the black rubber washer with 2 red ones (supposedly for high water temps, as the Home Depot Employee stated). First time over tightened and blew out the 2 washers, replaced and didn't tighten down as much and seems to be leak free.

They slide on really tight and snug. Make sure there aren't any burs on the end of the pipe that you're connecting them to. And remember that once you've made the connection, you can only get it off with the special Sharkbite removal tool (only a couple of bucks to purchase). Wish these came in sizes longer than 24", but I understand that the corrugated steel probably can't hold up pressure-wise if they are too much longer than that.

I had purchased extra items that I thought I might need for when the plumber arrived to install our new water heater; he was beginning to explain the process of how he was going to use the old hoses on the new heater when I pulled two new "SharkBite" connectors out of the bag that I had with me. With that he exclaimed "Awesome, you have SharkBites and that is going to make this task so much easier!" Great invention for sure!

When I got home with these, I found the connection to my new water softener was 1", not 3/4". Called a plumber... and guess what this professional used to adapt from my 3/4" plumbing to the needed 1" pipes? SHARKBITE connectors! So *there* is your review of SharkBites! They make more than just great flex connectors: They make great size-adapter/couplers, too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from deteriorating water heater supply line I used a shark bite supply line when I replaced my water heater. About 3 and 1/2 years later we had black specs filling our tub. Replaced the line with another one and now about 3 and 1/2 years later we have black specks in our tub again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
