I needed to replace my water heater. I also wanted to install a tempering valve at the same time. Of coarse, nothing lined up. With this house, it takes forever to gets things drained enough to be able to sweat joints. So I went with the Sharkbite fittings. The one end threads nicely to the fittings on the water heater, (Or in my case, the tempering valve.) The other end slides onto the cut copper pipe. You can make the connections while you are still getting a trickle of water out of the pipe. The next time you have to replace the water heater, you have some adjustment in case the connections don't line up.

Product is a described. It was easy to install and seems like it will last for years of service. It made installing a new water heater an easy install without having to sweat copper pipes. I would recommend even though they are a bit expensive.

This is truly the easiest plumbing connection on the planet. I used a couple of these 12 years ago or so on some washer connections at my mom's. Did not worry too much about them as the laundry set up was in the garage. I used this for my water heater that is located in my laundry room which is in my house. Some consider them a temporary fix and I get that but I know other folks that have had them installed for years. When installing them make sure your pipe cut is clean and has not deformed the copper in any way. Then use 400-600 sandpaper to clean the copper about two inches worth or as far as you can if less than that. Press firmly, it should slide on most of that two inches. In the pic attached you can see that you can still add insulation to the pipe, it will leave some gap on other side of handle but you could cut a piece for that too if you wanted.

Well, I can’t say that much about this supply line with shut off. It is an awesome a piece of ingenuity to help out the homeowner. We thought oh no don't turn on the water its will just blow off the pipe. You cut pipe, get a smooth end, push it on the pipe and that's it. Screw another end into the tank and you're done. No soldering, gluing or taping fitting. Love it.

      SharkBite work great. Make sure to leave enough space between pipe joints and couplers to install the removal tool before installing the bites or you'll go mad trying to get it off. Don't think you want need to remove them either. What if they leak a little and need to be adjusted.

      Very simple product to use. Simply cut old pipe (with water turned off) clean the edge of burrs and slide on. That’s it. Works perfectly. I used this and one without spicket to install a new water heater. No drip no fuss no soldering.
