This valve can be installed in either direction of flow and the handle would be aimed down or up as per your preference and mounting needs. It is also available in 3/4 inch style.

What is the drain for?

This can also be useful downstream from a whole house filter to relieve pressure and make it easier to unscrew the filter housing.

i connected it to 1/2 inch copper on one end and pex on the other

Does the valve have to be installed in a certain direction? I assume the arrow indicates water flow.

Asked by Edwin October 17, 2018

Answers

Yes, this valve can be installed in any direction or position. Just keep in mind the water flow direction otherwise you'll end up getting wet if you open the bleed cap on the pressurized side.

How many inches long is it - end to end?

Shark Bite fittings do exactly what they are supposed to. Easy to use, match different materials, and can be disconnected/re-connected. Great for trailers where you're repairing older lines w/ copper or CPVC, and they couldn't be easier to use!

Easy to install in a tight location and works great. I like that the copper pipe just has to be clean but not new and the valve can be rotated for convenience of operation. I had to install it on a line that I could not completely dry out and it works like a charm.

Easy install value with drain
The SharkBite ½ inch ball value with drop ear is designed to work with Copper, PEX, CPVC, and PE-RT half inch OD diameter pipe. It is an easy connect system, you measure and cut the pipe to length, leaving enough extra length of pipe to fit inside each connection (about an inch), and slip the connector on both ends of the pipe. You can easily rotate the valve on the pipe when the value is installed, and it can be removed using the SharkBite removal tool (a few bucks) to either reposition or reuse the value. I love these fittings as they eliminate the need to solder copper pipe, and can be used to change pipe materials without any additional adaptors. The value comes with built in PEX sleeves to provide rigidity, and the sleeves do not have to be removed if you use the fittings with copper pipe (although you can remove them with needle nose plyers). I’m using this value in addition to a ¾ inch to ½ inch tee to tie into an existing copper water line and run PEX pipe to a new outdoor faucet. I wanted a shut off value and this does the trick. Having the drop ear provides a solid way to mount the value, and having a drain port with cap built into the side of the value allows me to drain the line in the winter. Ball valve works smoothly. I am a big fan of SharkBite products, and this valve did not disappoint. The ease of use and convenience to install these fittings saves times and aggravation, and in my opinion is well worth the cost over a copper fitting you need to solder. I have never had a leak issue, and the fittings are suitable for potable water supply and meet most building codes. Value is rated for 200 psi and is lead free.

Easiest replacement you can make
These Sharke Bite Push to Connect ball valves are the easiest replacement you can make to any current old shutoff valve. Follow the written or video instructions and you will become the “expert” plumber in no time. No more dripping solder, burning studs or joists, no more burning your fingers, no more time waste draining existing pipes and allowing to dry. I installed this valve for a shutoff valve of an existing exterior hose bib which was located just above my main service. I was able to easily disconnect the pipe on the house side of the meter, then unsolder the existing old gate valve. I then just slipped this valve into place starting at the top, then working down towards the meter. Took less than 10 minutes and I have NO LEAKS. This valve comes with a removal tool which comes in handy for a re-do or removal. I use nothing but Shark Bite products these days as they are cost efficient and save time for repairs or even new work.

I like these fittings
I like the SharkBite plumbing fittings because you don’t have to solder the pipes together. I have done soldering in the past but it is hard to keep your expertise up if you don’t do it that often. Especially in hard to access places where there is flammable wood or insulation close by it is easier to use these. I have used them before and they are still doing fine years later. Also they are easier to take off and reuse if you want to reconfigure your piping later. This fitting is nice because it has a drain valve if you need to drain the pipes. It also had a built in flange to screw the fitting to the joists or wall.

I was able to add this as an emergency shut off after a pipe froze and burst. Will save a ton of headaches and it was fast and easy to install. I love these - wish they were not so expensive.
