Can Sharkbite fittings be used for a Rheem tankless water?

Asked by POINDEXTER January 22, 2021
6
Answers

It may depend on the code in your area. I did use on my line but we used it at least 2 feet away from the actual tank - we kept the initial 1st copper turn that was there on the prior tank.. It seems to be working very well right now. Good luck.

Pluming for 1985 Vacatoioneer camper

Asked by Jon June 27, 2020

Modern RVs use PEX pipe or PEX tubing. It is cheaper and easier to install than metal tubing. PEX tubing comes in all colors, but red tubes are normally used for hot water, and blue ones for cold water. I found this by just googling "what kind of plumbing pipes are used in campers" I'm also guessing that the size is 3/8" and not half inch. Perhaps even a quarter of an inch. I just replaced my electric tankless hot water heater in my singlewide. It only took 90 minutes. I have half inch copper for the cold water inlet and the hot water outlet because copper is required there. I already had 3/8 inch copper tubing but I did use half inch cold water (blue pex) for some of the cold water incoming. I used Shark Bite fittings for the whole job. That's why the replacement went so fast. My dad had a motor home and he thought the pump quit working. I just tapped on it and it worked OK. It reminded me of a ball point pen that you click to get the pen to come out and then click again to make the pen retract. There is not much water pressure so the fittings are flimsy. Those little round metal things with a screw that you turn to tighten the fitting was all that was needed.

There are 100s of reviews on these connectors. They work great and make quick work of plumbing. I used these to hook up a water filter and softener to my house. Transitioned from 1 inch copper to PEX and also used PVC threaded connectors on the hardware. Everything worked perfectly. Excellent product.

This is an exceptional product. It cost me $150 a couple years ago to find out about it and now I use it all the time. All it takes is common sense and a few minutes of your time to install it follow directions never leaks.

Needed one on the incoming cold water side of hot water heater and another for the overpressure valve exhaust. Cleaned pipes as if to solder, but installed SharkBites instead. Very easy and no leaks. Quite expensive, but if you consider the time saved and getting it right the first time, your money ahead......now to see how long it lasts!
