About This Product

SharkBite Max push-to-connect fittings are the fastest way to connect PEX, copper, CPVC, PE-RT or HDPE pipe. A newly designed stainless steel collet retainer delivers additional strength and durability and provides a 250 psi pressure rating. SharkBite Max fittings don't require a PEX tube liner and a re-engineered body allows you to insert the pipe using less force and greater ease. No soldering, clamps, unions, glue, or special tools required. After inserting the pipe, stainless steel teeth bite down and grip the pipe tightly while a specially formulated O-ring compresses around the pipe to create a watertight seal. The fitting can be rotated after installation for quick adjustments, and removing the fitting is just as fast with a disconnect tool, allowing fittings and valves to be changed or reused.

Highlights

  • Requires no special tools to install on hot or cold-water lines
  • Can be installed on wet or dry lines pressure tested immediately
  • Rotatable after installation and removable
  • PEX tube liner not required
  • Approved for underground and behind-the-wall applications with no access panels wrapping required when burying underground
  • Low-lead DZR corrosion-resistant brass body
  • Rated to 200°F and 250 psi
  • Code approved, IAPMO Listed for details, see specification
  • 25-year warranty when used with PEX, copper, CPVC and PE-RT pipe, see warranty
  • Return Policy

1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi, The SharkBite Max 1/2 in. Push-to-Connect Brass Coupling can be used on PEX-A pipe. You will need to verify that the PEX-A pipe has been tested to the (ASTM F876) standard. This standard is for push-to-connect fittings. You will find this information printed on the PEX pipe if the PEX pipe has been approved for push-to-connect fittings. If you have any more questions you can call tech support at 877-700-4242. Kind regards,

        Q:I need to cut 4” to 8” of line to remove a leaking unneeded shutoff valve. The stock size splice pipe length is six inches so would like to use the full length. So what length of existing pipe do I remove to splice the 6” pipe with a fitting on each end?

          SharkBite pipe connectors are a God send and a must for modern DIYers. My individual shut off valves leaked which meant no soldering the copper pipes without shutting off the whole house -- others don't like that. So I had to switch to SharkBite and then when my OLD connecting copper tee joint broke (was bad from the beginning), I had to replace everything with SharkBite. An impossible, in the celling, soldering operation turned into a very simple operation. Note, the included picture is looking up into the ceiling above the shower ;-)

          Works
          Old 1/2" compression fitting has been a leak issue for quite a while. Cut a new piece of pipe, cleaned and connected to the old feed line, and snapped in nicely with no leaks. This is my 3rd Sharkbite coupling; the other two were 1" copper, and after a few years, no issues at all.

            Very easy to install. Specially for tight places where tradicional solder type is hard to work. No special tools required.

              Great for quick fix
              This is the first time I used SharkBite for an emergency repair and I am very happy I did. Toilet tank lid fell on the shutoff valve which cracked the elbow inside the wall. I had to use a coupling to extend the ½ PVC through 2X4 into an Elbow and a Shutoff. SharkBite had it all and made the entire repair easy and quick. This is great for DIYers.

                Works with both copper and Pex. Product support saved the day by suggesting I use Pex pipe to close a gap that didn’t align well.

                The orange C clamp to remove these things only works if you have two unattached pipes in your hands. Otherwise you need an ape to remove an existing pipe and the force just caused me to bang into my other pipes and break them. Of course shark bite company does not have a place for a customer reviews. This has happened more than a couple of times to me.
