Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent solution for installing a new hot water heater. Well worth the money compared to a plumber install. I had the new hot water heater installed in less than 45 min. March 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, makes installation so easy! While the shark connectors are a little more expensive they make up for it in ease of installation. I have copper pipes in my house I just used a pipe cutting tool to get a clean and even cut on the pipe and then just slide the shark end over the pipe. Make sure you push it up hard so it locks in and that's it. These are well built, high quality material and work well. You do need a special tool to take them off but I don't expect that I will ever need to remove it. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth it if you don't want to solder. Worked out great. Connected Water Softener to PEX. Sure beats the heck out of soldering fittings to copper. The only complaint would be the price. If I had to do a lot of this I am not sure I could afford it. May 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use and works great These were vey easy to use and did exactly what I needed them to do. Just push it in until it won't slide on anymore and your done. Only downside is they were $3.00 more than the similar product that I had purchased at Menards that was the wrong size. Real reason I bought them at Home Depot was that they were a lot closer for me than Menards was, and I wanted the job done then. November 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A handy fitting for DIY/ all I recently installed water softener on my own and was looking for PVC connectors to connect it to my 3/4 pipe and this one proved to be the exact fitting required in this situation . no leakage and very easy to install. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing solution Couldn't have been easier to use... Taking the skilled out of skilled labor! April 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great item Very easy to use, worth the price, would purchase again February 3, 2015
