Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by hbv2020 These water heater connectors start shedding rubber particles shortly after installation
I had been experiencing black goo and rubber particles clogging many of the screens and filters in my house. After on line research I found it could be the black rubber liner in these connectors that was deteriorating. In deed that was the cause. I removed the hoses and cut them in half and the hot water hose was filled with black gunk. Also some in the cold water but not as bad. SharkBite claims it is caused by hard water and chlorine. Since most of the US has hard water and chlorine it would seem few are safe from deterioration.

I had one of those nightmare weekends where I had an unplanned water heater installation. I hate to sweat solder and these SharkBite connectors make water connections a breeze. The person that invented the ShartBite connectors is a genius! The braided stainless steel water heater connector is the way to go as it gives you a lot of flexibility in making the connections. I have 3/4" copper pipe and cut the pipe to the old water heater. I set the new water in place and made the water line connections using the ShartBite connectors. It was so simple. No leaks. I had hot water in no time. Thank you SharkBite and also to Home Depot for carrying their product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by john I just called Sharkbite and Customer Service was as expected ... lousy
I have the these lines on a water heater installed in Jan 2013. Thankfully I read these reviews, otherwise, I would never have figured out the cause of this problem. Who would expect these lines that are only 2.5 years old to start disintegrating in Delray Beach, FL.
I just replaced them over the weekend and called customer service this morning. They did exactly what I anticipated which is to tell me that it is my problem to address. Evidently, they don't stand behind their overpriced and inferior products, but that should not come as a surprise in this day and age.
Simple install but very poor quality!!

These make plumbing so much easier. Slide on and presto you are done. No sweating pipes anymore. Just make sure the pipe you are connecting to is round and clean with a square end cut.

Got frustrated with sweating faulty valve with pinhole leak. Was late at night and i needed two things. 1 sleep and 2 hot water. Cut above valve, sanded copper tubing and wiped with clean cloth before pushing this on. No leaks, good nights sleep and a hot shower the next morning.

What can one say about a hot water connector? It works.

The shark bite products are easy to use and I have never had a leak with any installation. I find that this product may be higher in price than conventional connectors but when you add in ease of use and less labor than soldering which does not always work. Timewise, this product saves you money.
