About This Product

SharkBite Max push-to-connect slip fittings are the fastest way to make repairs on copper or CPVC pipe. The slip fitting allows for the removal of only the damaged section of pipe (up to 2 in.) without having to replace the whole pipe. SharkBite Max fittings feature a newly designed stainless-steel retainer that delivers additional strength and durability while providing a 250 psi pressure rating. The re-engineered body allows you to insert the pipe using less effort, making repairs even easier. No soldering, clamps, unions, glue or special tools are required for installation. 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. (SharkBite push-to-connect fittings are the fastest when compared to other conventual plumbing methods. All other comparisons relate to first generation SharkBite push-to-connect products).

Highlights

  • Stainless steel retainer adds strength and durability
  • High-performance DZR lead-free brass body
  • No special tools, crimping, soldering or glue required
  • Can be rotated after installation
  • No PEX tube liner required

      Coupling was hard to slip onto copper pipe, leaked at first attempt to turn on water. Had to reposition/adjust in order to stop leaking, finally was able to stop leak.

      This item enabled me to accomplish a project that would have otherwise been impossible.  It was critical to the success of plumbing an exterior spigot which was leaking and required replacement.  Unfortunately while investigating the routing, I determined the point of entry into my house is right above the foundation wall, which then runs 11" before angling down between the joists.  There is a 4" gap to access the entry point, and the small dimensions would have made soldering a new connection virtually impossible without hiring a plumber.  And even then, given the space to work in, I'm not convinced it could have been safely installed. This slip coupling allowed me to connect a new spigot with ease, and the ability to disconnect it in the future to replace the spigot in minutes is incredibly useful.  I could not be more happy with this product.

      For copper pipe only
      I bought one of these after seeing how easy they are to install in Youtube videos. At the last minute in the store I decided to switched to using pEX instead of some copper pipe I had on hand. When I cam to use the slip i noticed that it is for copper only and not for PEX. You need a regular straight coupling if you are going to use PEX. I understand that there is little to no need for a SLIP coupling when using PEX but I had to go back to HD and get some PEX couplings. I am keeping this though in case I ever get a leak in our copper piping. It is dead easy to cut the leaking part out and insert a new length using this slip coupling.

      Shark Bite is the best!
      This makes plumbing really easy. Follow instructions and these things are solid. I use Shark Bite wherever possible. The coupling has been in place for a few years with no issues at all.
