Questions & Answers

does the shark bite clean the od and id of tubing?

Asked by: army
It does not actually clean the pipe. It just deburrs and cuts a bevel on the cut edge of the pipe. In the product photo on the website, you see a black circle around each of the 3 screw heads. The black circles are actually the blades that extend into the base of the 6 cylinder-shape gauges for the various pipe sizes (1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 3/4, 5/8 and 1 inch). When you insert the pipe and twist it, only the cut edge of the pipe comes in contact with the blade. After I used the tool to deburr & bevel the cut edge, I used steel wool to clean the pipe. I then reinserted the pipe into the tool to mark the depth for inserting the pipe into the Sharkbite fitting. Be sure that your pipe is cut straight (square). I was using a Sharkbite slip fitting for 3/4" copper drain pipe which connects to the water heater pressure relief valve. Even a circular cutter made for tight spaces would not fit the clearance between the pipe and water tank so I had to cut it with a saw. Once the pipe was disconnected, I was able to cut off another 1/4" from the pipe using the circular cutter to get it nice and square. If you run into a situation like this, be sure your measurements allow for a second cut. Here's a photo of the interior of the tool which shows the blade. Hope this helps.

does this tool mark the depth of the od pipe just by inserting the pipe into this tool or do I have to mark the od pipe with a pencil?

Asked by: tl
I saw faint witness marks on the pipe but, to be sure, I would still mark the O.D. of the pipe.

does this really deburr? mine doesn't look like it would

I just bought one and it doesn't look like there's anything inside each tube that would deburr the OD. Is it tiny or hidden? Seems like a waste of money.
Asked by: BobbyElvis
Yes, mine did a good job of deburring and beveling the cut edge of the pipe. I still used some steel wool on the interior & exterior of the pipe.

It made the job much easier and I now have it in may tool box for the next time that I install a Sharkbite fitting. I first cleaned the exterior of the pipe with steel wool before using the tool to mark the depth for inserting the pipe into the fitting. The tool did a great job of deburring the cut end of the pipe & beveling the cut edge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful, but know it's limitations I was never a fan of "mechanical" seals behind walls until I helped my son-in-law rebuilding their bathroom. Still leary of hidden applications, but I made the jump and have used these when joining difference materials (as in old copper to CPVC). As a depth gage, very easy and useful. For deburring the OD - useful, although I think careful use of a small knife works fine also. I suspect those who report "chattering" or the like may have been using too much pressure. For deburring the ID - it was not intended for this purpose, which I find disappointing, given that the "seal" surface is the ID. I ensure a clean, burr-free ID by using a little emory cloth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do Not Leave Home Depot Without it! Purchased my Shark Bites for my kitchen plumbing and went home. I had a couple of questions before I installed so I went back to Home Depot and the plumbing dept. guy ask if I had the Shark Bite Safe Seal Tool. For the money it is a great investment. After I cut my Shark Bite 1/2" plumbing pipe, I lightly twisted the pieces through the Safe Seal Tool and sure enough, it nicely and easily cleaned up the ends of each piece of pipe, plus, you can mark the 1" mark exactly with the tool. Hooked the valves and connectors up with my piece of pipe then slid them right over the old piping, which in my case was polybutylene (old mobile home grey plumbing). If you have the same, make sure to use Shark Bites for polybutylene. Works well! Would not hesitate to use Shark Bites for any future plumbing project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shark Bite Tool This tool is great and is very affordable. Been working with shark bite fittings for a while and it helps you to not second guess yourself when you push the shark bite fitting on, weather it is all the way on or not. This tool once you deburr the tubing & put a mark on the tubing. Using this tool as your guide with it still on the tubing, put a mark where the top of the tool ends on the tubing. You then take the shark bite fitting pop it on, you will then see that the fitting will stop where that mark is. Now you have a true fit no second guessing. Doug
