Answer

Hello, SharkBite EvoPEX fittings are only approved for use with PEX tubing and will not work correctly with copper pipe. To reduce from 1" copper pipe to 3/4" PEX tubing we would recommend the use of SharkBite model # U060LFA (SKU # 279205). If you have additional questions please don't hesitate to reach out to our technical support department at 877-700-4242. Best Regards,

Easy to use and no leaks. Package says to use only with Shark Bite brand PEX. I used with existing PEX in places where I can keep an eye on them (i.e., not buried in wall). First checked ID and OD specs of existing PEX and found it was same as Shark Bite PEX. No problems after 1 month...will see how they hold up over time...sure are easy to use, though

I needed a coupler for my PEX to reroute a blowout for my sprinkler system. I almost went with the traditional sharkbyte fitting but was intrigued by these PEX only couplers. I’m glad I used these. They are strong even thought they are made with mostly plastic. The best part is the green indicator showing when the coupler is fitted properly and pushed far enough on the PEX. I will be getting more of these fittings.

Shark Bite Evo PEX K016A6 ¾” x ¾” Coupling, Push To Connect Straight Coupling - The Evo PEX Push To Connect Fittings are designed for ONLY PEX Tubing and are Non-Removable after installation…The installation is quite easy with (4) straight forward steps…1. Cut the Pex Tubing square, using a quality PEX Tubing cutter with a sharp blade…2. Ensure that both Evo PEX fitting and Pex Tubing are free of debris and damage in preparation for making the connection…3. Push the pipe into the fitting firmly, a twisting action reduces the insertion force required to complete the connection, avoid inserting the pipe at an angle…4. Verify that the pipe is pushed into the fitting fully and engaged properly, check that the green indicator is fully visible on all ports of the fitting…Since PEX Tubing does not rupture if it is exposed to freezing temperatures, these Evo Push To Connect fittings will be a great addition to the potable water system in the barn…The fittings should perform as indicated, intended and expected without any problems...

The SHARKBITE 3/4 IN. PUSH-TO-CONNECT EVOPEX PLASTIC COUPLING FITTING (6-PACK) is an excellent product that helped make the installation of a residential lawn sprinkler system much easier. The combination installation use of of 3/4" push to connect for joint application was a very handy for straight lines. Using the 6 pack could be a 10 pack and would have a better. Application of the SharkBite 3/4" 90 degree elbows made the connections and completion of the project at a higher quality that the old screw clamp system.

(What's this)
This 6 pack set of Evopex Sharkbite 3/4" couplers are to be used with Pex tubing ONLY! (Which is a plastic straight, or flexible tubing on a roll). These couplers are non reuseable. You slip it on, push the tubing onto the fitting, very easy to use . When the couple is in place, an area around the ring shows green , to indictate that it is sealed properly. I have used the other types of Sharkbite fittings in the past and have never had them leak. They are high quality products. After reading articles on the pex pipe itself though, I would not recommend using it for plumbing of drinking water. For toilets, and showers, and floor heating systems it's great, but please do your own research and check with your local building codes. I used this product for a new install of a shower in my garage, and it is very easy to work with!!

(What's this)
The time had come to put a utility sink in the shop. There has never been running water before. I decided to go with pex piping for ease and to not have to mess with expensive time consuming copper. I had used traditional SharkBite fittings before on copper repair and found them to be amazing & easy to use so thought now was the time to use their EvoPEX fittings, along with PEX; on a new install. The area where I wanted the sink required both 90-degree elbows and coupling fittings. The push-to-connect fittings work just like that. They are straight forward, easy to use. I like the green indicator & you would hear a click and then see the green as stated. We turned on the water once plumbed for the first time and every time since with NO leaks. I appreciated no soldering, crimping, glue, going back to find a drip. Cut the desired pipe length and push-to-connect. My copper days are over! Try these you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend any of the SharkBite fittings based on the application you need them for.

The Sharkbite line of water supply fittings has made DIY to the homeowner. No need to have a truckload of tools to do a simple plumbing task. The tubing for the fittings comes in colors that allow the homeowner to be able to color code, red for hot, blue for cold, white for recycle. Assembly is so easy, simply cut the tubing to length insert into the fittings, push it in firmly, that's all there is to it. This system is Penney's on the dollar compared to metal pipe.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I had the perfect job for these fittings. Sharkbite and pex always surprise me and this sharkbite fitting worked out good. I like how the fitting has a small indicator that turns green when the pipe is pushed in correctly. I definitely had to push pretty hard to get the pipe in so it’s a pretty snug fit. Not difficult to use. I fixed a leak inside the wall which I had no issues fixing and the fittings did not leak at all. They definitely serve their purpose very well but if anything that I did not like about them is that they are not removable. Other sharkbite fittings have the ability to be removed which is a nice option to have just in case it’s faulty or any other possible issues. It would’ve been nice if they were removable. I didn’t have any issues with the couplers. No leaks and I had it all measured up to be perfect. I don’t know if I would recommend these fittings just because of the fact that they can’t be removed. Always many upside to the push to connect fittings because of no glue, no mess and just anyone can do their own plumbing with very basic knowledge. Like I said these fittings worked out good but I just with they were removable.

THE SHARKBITE 3/4 IN. PUSH-TO-CONNECT EVOPEX PLASTIC COUPLING FITTING (6-PACK) This is an awesome alternative to copper pipes and it is so easy to install and no soldering you just have to push in both sides and your done, it is only used on pex piping but they do have them for copper piping and comes in a variety of sizes and shapes, Definitely worth every penny in my view.

I am a DIY plumber so I do not know all the codes etc. but I love working with PEX pipe and Sharkbite is the premier brand for PEX pipe accessories. These are just so easy to use. You merely push in the PEX pipe until you feel it seat and then that is it. No leaks, no tightening, no problems. If you need to remove the pipe there is an inexpensive tool to remove the pipe from the fitting. I have heard that you should use all one brand on a project for warranty reasons. I do not do this but I do notice that the Sharkbite products cannot be beat. This is a 3/4" X 3/4" straight connector fitting allowing you to continue a pipe run in a straight line.
