The 1/2 in. SharkBite Push-to-Connect x Male Pipe Thread 90° Elbow allows you to make a 90° connection to 1/2 in. pipe using a push-fit connection on one end and gives you a 1/2 in. Male NPT Adapter on the opposite end. SharkBite fittings are the easiest way to join copper, PE-RT, CPVC or PEX pipe in any combination with no soldering, clamps, unions or glue. Just insert the pipe and the stainless steel teeth bite down and grip tight, while a specially formulated O-ring compresses to create a perfect seal. Disassembly is just as fast using the simple disconnect tool so fittings and valves can be easily changed and reused. They can even be rotated after assembly for easier installation in tight spaces. SharkBite Fittings are certified for potable water supply and hydronic heating applications. Get SharkBite and get a grip on your next plumbing project.

SharkBite fittings works great! Only 1 problem if your Copper Pipe or PEX has a deep scratch or any imperfections they will not seal! I used them to install a water heater just cut and push in. I had 1 elbow that was dripping a drop every 2 to 5 seconds everything else was fine. Took that section apart and there was a scratch on the PEX pipe just big enough to feel when running a finger over it. Cut a new piece of PEX and put it in, no more leak. Sweating copper pipe will seal up almost anything but SharkBite fittings need perfect pipe at the connections. I will use them again but will inspect my pipe very close.
