          A:  You will be able to remove the caps with the tool and there will be no damage that would need to be addressed prior to installation of another SharkBite type coupling.

              Sold on SharkBite
              I have used SharkBite products on 4 or 5 different plumbing issues and all have held well. I've installed end stops underneath my house and simple cut-offs for an outside faucet (all normal 1/2 copper water pipe). No problems at all. Will continue to use them wherever I can. I'm sold on the product. As most vids and instructions tell you, cut your pipe square, keep it clean, push on the fitting while keeping it straight (not at an angle); done.

              Excellent product
              Very easy to use and highly effective. No leaks whatsoever. Simply measure, smooth cut on the pipe, and cap. That's it!

                After much reading and videos of seeing and not believing how easy this would be to install, I installed 3 quicker than it took to cut the 1/2 inch copper pipe. I just cleaned the pipe with Emory cloth prior to cutting off old angle stops first then deburr the edges a little and pushed the fittings on. I used 3 caps as of now and they are a life saver knowing they are easily removable and reusable. This is helping me a lot as I demo my bathroom and knowing 2 fittings will be re routed anyways. I just needed to stop the water flow.

                When we added an extension washroom, the guys left the old washer hookup with valve connected. Of course eventually, the valve would fail which it did. Fortunately I caught it early. My first thought was to cut out the valve stub-outs, and use the Sharkbite end stop to cap off the copper pipe. But then I discovered how "easy" it is just replace the valve. Since space limitations would make it somewhat difficult to cut out the old valve stub-outs, I decided to try a new valve. Got the replacement valve and it didn't fit. The on-center was correct, but I couldn't even get the valve on the stub-outs. I had 2 of the Sharbite end stops so the decision was made. I cut out the valve stub-outs with a multi-tool, yes not recommended. There was no way to get a pipe cutter in there without cutting the box and I didn't want to do that. After cutting I then filed and sand papered to make sure the end of the copper pipe was smooth. Even getting the end stop on wasn't easy due to the limited space and other constraints. Once I got it on, turned on the water...No leaks! Awesome! Checked it a couple of days later and all is good. This is a definite recommend!

                  I'm a plumber now!! Well at least I was able to seal off a leaking copper pipe I found in my bathroom remodeling. 5 minutes tops including water shutoff - I also bought and used the deburring tool (Home Depot internet item #100638148).
