About This Product

SharkBite Max push-to-connect ball valves are the fastest and easiest way to install a new or replacement water shut-off valve. A newly designed stainless steel collet retainer delivers additional strength and durability and provides a 250 psi pressure rating. SharkBite Max fittings and valves don't require a PEX tube liner and a re-engineered body allows you to insert the pipe using less force and greater ease. The single lever quarter turn handle allows for quick control over water flow, especially in tight spaces. 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 valve can be rotated after installation for quick adjustments, and removing the valve is just as fast with a disconnect tool, allowing them to be changed or reused.

Highlights

  • Compatible with PEX, copper, CPVC PE-RT, or HDPE pipe
  • 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

    Q:Can this be used to go from 3/4" galvanized pipe to copper pipe?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello, Unfortunately, brass SharkBite push-to-connect fittings and valves are not suitable for connecting to galvanized pipe. Connecting brass valves to galvanized pipe will cause corrosion due to the dissimilar metals. If you have additional questions please feel free to contact our technical support department at 877-700-4242. Regards

      A:  Copper yes, Galvanized no.

            A:  Nope. An additional adapter will be needed to convert the 3/4" steel National Pipe Thread Taper (NPT) to a "push to connect" type pipe.

                I am not a plumber and I had to cut two copper pipes but I do not know how to solder. I learned about shark bite and I installed it for shutoff means and it worked. No leaks! I checked it daily for a few days and it's been a HUGE help.

                  Saved the Day.
                  An unknown past contractor somehow bypassed the main water shutoff to my house and I had to replace a yard hydrant. This ultimately involved cutting and capping a live 1" water line at full pressure. We have about 110 psi, Plumbers seem to hate sharkbite fittings because they are homeowner friendly. I back hoed a 50" deep by 30" by 5' hole to get to the line to the yard hydrant. The 1" copper pipe wad completely encrusted in what turned out to be calcium. I removed it with full strength Hydrochloric acid (phosphoric wouldn't get through it). This left the pipe bare. I then polished a 6" section with 500 wet/dry paper. I was very careful to choose an area without a nick or dent. I used a quality pipe cutter and was careful not to let the cutter spiral because it would be an 0 ring seal and requires a perfect surface. I cut the pipe and believe me, a lot of water comes out the end of a 1'' pipe at 110 psi. With the ball valve in the open position I slipped the fitting over the pipe all the way to the seat, turned off the valve and could feel the shark teeth move and snap into the pipe. It went perfectly. It was a hard and scary job. I built all the plumbing to the new hydrant with solder joints, added an accessible shutoff in a 6" access 20" deep and connected it to the other end of the sharkbite shutoff with a cleaned piece of 1" pipe. By the way, the water blowing through the shutoff dislodged the outboard 0 ring. I was lucky to spot it laying in the water and figured out where it came from. I observed the outfit for 24 hours before burying the whole thing. It all works perfectly.

                  Easy install, works great!
                  I installed this last winter to replace the old corroded cold water supply valve when we replaced the hot water tank. Also has the Sharkbite supply lines. The HD guy explained how to do it and it took no time at all, He also said keep removal tool on line so you don't lose, you can see it just above valve in pic I just recently checked the valve and no leaks all is still secure. It was great not having to sold joints and it is a solid fit. Planning on buying more to install additional shutoff valves around house this winter as the builder who did our house in 80's did bare minimum code meaning only a main supply cutoff, none for other zones.

                  Perfect for my application of replacing the old gate valve. No soldering when water is still trickling.
