                          Works great
                          I greatly appreciate SharkBite connectors. They work well, are easy to use and prevent me from burning down my house using a propane torch to solder copper connections. I installed a new shower in my basement over ten years ago using only Sharkbite connectors and have no problems with them.

                            No plumber requires
                            Great fittings for the DYI guy. Easy to use and save a thousand dollars instead of the plumber.

                                              Was easy to install. Used it on my new water heater. Plumber told me to pull white insert out if not using on pex. Push on straight and not at angle and you'll be good to go.
