Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Technology changes plumbing I stumbled onto this product when I was reworking the plumbing for a water conditioner. I used to pride myself on sweating copper but those days are now history on small jobs. Very easy to use and so much less hassle. When everyone went to plastic for simplicity, I kept using copper but these snap together connections make copper even easier than plastic. March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Installation Love this easy to use, no buying of separate pieces. All in one. Love it! March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Suhweet I swapped out my water heater and didn't have to sweat a single pipe. These things work on copper and plastic tubing very well. Little more money, but what a time saver! March 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good purchase The water heater connector made installing the water heater very easy. March 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by the war against water heaters ITEM:3/4 in. x 24 in. Stainless Steel Push-Fit x FIP Water Heater Connector I bought the steel web wrapped water heater connector because the water heater top is difficult to reach and has limited space to apply the wrench to tighten or loosen. Note that this hose is replacing an identical hose that began to leak in less than two years use. Even with the failure of the previous hose, I still bought another. The hose failed because the angle of the hose was too sharp. This time I put on a longer feeder hose so that there was an easy curve. Do not let this hose kink. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice time saving product. Makes it much easier to install a water heater. Very little skill needed and saves time for the professional as well as the doit yourselfer. Only caution is to be sure fitting is pushed in as required to prevent it from comeing off or leaking when the water pressure is turned on. Measure, make a mark, and then push the fitting on until it reaches the mark. Always test the fittings for leaks as a precaution. February 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by made plumbing ez It was so simple! even a child could install it with ease! February 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Made my plumbing job easy I am a DIYer and have done lots of plumbing projects on my own. I learned to sweat copper pipe joints and planned on doing that with my project. New well pressure tank and hot water heater. I had VERY LIMITED space to make a connection and had to clean up some less that stellar work done by a Professional Plumber. I ended up cutting the 3/4 pipe that was in a hard to reach location and attached the Shark Bite connection and it made a great 90 degree turn. I then used two more on my hot water tank. When a electrician showed up to do some work for me he said that all the plumbing that I did looked great. I joked that it looked semi professional and he said better than professional becuase the professional wouldn't take the time to do it like I did. Made me feel pretty good. July 1, 2014
