Yes they can, as long as the outside diameter of the tubing is the same as nominal 1/2” tubing.

Plastic, as in CPVC or PEX? Yes, they certainly will work on that type of piping.

Looking for 3/4”copper to 1” scd 40 pvc fitting

Asked by Stan October 20, 2020

Answer

Hello, We do not offer a fitting suitable for connecting 3/4" copper to 1" Schedule 40 PVC at this time. SharkBite transition coupling model # UIP4020A (SKU # 1001563232) can be used to transition from 1" Schedule 40, 80 or 120 PVC to 1" copper. SharkBite reducing coupling model # U060LFA (SKU # 279205) can then be used to go from 1" copper to 3/4" copper. If you have additional questions please don't hesitate to reach out to our technical support department at 877-700-4242. Best Regards,

What is the biggest size of hole in pipe for this fitting to keep working just fine?

Asked by TonyR2040 October 12, 2020
1
Answer

Use to connect to any combination of copper, PEX, CPVC, or PE-RT pipes Same size fitting as pipe size. 3/4 inch fitting for 3/4 inch pipe. If the pipe isn't one of the ones listed in description (above list) then it will not work. There are other sharkbite fittings that can be used to join different type pipes. For instance will not work on PVC (which isn't CPVC).

Answers

The packaging tells you how far to insert the pipe into the fitting but I believe it will be 1" so I would install it on 1 side 1st and then measure that same 1" or other distance only other pipe and that will let you know where it will end up being.

If the connection I buy is a 3/4" and it d If the shark bite connection I bought is a 3/4" how will it go over a 3/4" p.

Will this work on galvanized pipe

Asked by Glen June 23, 2020

Answers

Sharkbite fittings are not designed to be used on galvanized tubing. Galvanized pipe should be cut and rethreaded or replaced as a section between fittings. The mfg. does not reccomend use on galvanized in its product specs.

Response from RWC SupportMar 1, 2021
Hello, we are sorry to hear about the leaks you experienced with the 1/2 in. SharkBite Coupling. The main reason for failure is not pushing the fitting to the full insertion depth. A 1/2 in. SharkBite fitting requires 15/16 in. in order to create a seal. We recommend marking this depth on the pipe before installation. Please reach out to our Customer Service Team at 1-877-700-4242 so we can assist. SharkBiteCashAcme

Kitchen Remodel
The wife and I decided to do a kitchen remodel ourselves because we're crazy. Our Kitchen sink cabinet needed to be replaced because of an old leak from a faucet sprayer line. Our plumbing lines are PEX which at the time I thought they were PVC. Not knowing the difference between the two, I called my local plumber and showed him a picture of what I had and he explained to me that my lines were PEX. Anyway we took out the old lines and put new ones in using the Shark Bites. The old lines didn't have shark bites. they were press or shrink fitted and had to be completely cut out. Using the shark bites made the job EXTREMELY easier for me since I am a rookie plumber. During the remodel I had to connect, reconnect, disconnect again, reconnect again, multiple, multiple, multiple times. The shark bites made that process again so much easier to work with. I thought after disconnecting them so many times that they would for sure leak. NOPE!! On the last time I had to connect and reconnect the Shark Bites, one of the white pieces came out. I thought for sure that it would now leak. I put the white piece back in correctly and no issues what so EVER!! You definitely get your $$$ worth with the shark bites. All my connections are shark bites. Including the shut off valves. As you can imagine I highly, highly, recommend these for a plumbing issue, repair, or replacement of any kind.

Makes repairs easier
I had a pinhole leak in a 90 deg elbow. I soldered together a new elbow and connected it to the existing tubing with a 3/4" coupling and a 3/4" repair coupling. I really like the fact that you can make the repair with no soldering - I did not want to use a torch in the tight area in my ceiling. It turns out that I had more play in the tubes than I thought so I could have used a regular coupling rather than a repair coupling on the vertical tube. God forbid that it happens again, but if it does, I'll get two regular couplings and a repair coupling and return the one I don't use. These are super products that I highly recommend for the DIY'er. Just follow the directions on deburring and cleaning the tubes so the O-ring isn't damaged and can make a good seal. Four years ago, I had a pinhole leak in a 1/2" straight section of copper tubing. I used the Sharkbite repair coupling. Again, fairly easy to use and still holding strong with no issues.
