Rated 5 out of 5 by NEVER KNEW PLUMBING COULD BE SO EASY This was a great product! Big thanks to Zeke at the Home Depot store in Lafayette, In #2034! He was a huge help explaining how this connector works and the installation was very easy. I put in the entire water softener in under 90 minutes. No leaks. Will definitely buy more shark bite attachments when I have to do another plumbing job! February 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellant Product Excellant product. Very easy to install. Almost no chance of error. I used this product during the installation of a water softener. The Shark Bite fittings are incredibly easy to use. It's nearly impossible to improperly install the fitting. The installation took only seconds and is leak free. I used this fitting with PEX pipe. I did the rest of the job using standard PEX fittings and compression rings. In hindsight, I would have used Shark Bite fittings for the entire project even dispite the higher cost. July 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Plumbing Answer MAde teh water softener install a piece of cake. Particularly important to me is teh flex connection which allows less stress on the valve parts of teh softener which are all plastic. No leaks and easy to use what a deal! July 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Couldn't have been easier Couldn't have been easier to install and no leaks. The braided hose promotes confidence in long term performance. For a novice DIYer like myself this is the perfect product. It also looks good. July 1, 2014
