This is exactly what I was looking for -replacing my old copper supply plumbing which is being compromised by acidic water. My answer was going to PEX piping and these plastic PEX fittings. I am replacing my existing lines sections at a time in conjunction with other remodeling projects. Use these plugs when stubbing lines for future connections. These fittings are as not expensive as other materials and not subject to damage from acidic water.I complete installation with copper crimp rings. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

These 1/2 in.plastic per barb plug works great as a stopper with pen tubing when working with pressure up to 200 psi. They are a perfect solution for when corrosion buildup may affect brass fitting and you need a plug to hold it while your trying to repair the problem. They work great and are easy to use when you need to fix something that breaks in a hurry. Holds up very well to pressure and always nice to have some around the house.

BACKGROUND: I do some DIY PEX work around the shop and house. Sometimes I run PEX that will be connected at a later date. Sometimes I just need to isolate part of a run more permanently than with an inaccessible valve. On projects near a valve I make my own water hammer arrestors. Both jobs require a good PEX plug. The Sharkbite PEX barb plug does the job nicely. FIT AND FINISH: The barb plugs are the same high quality as other Sharkbite fittings. The plastic used is a polysulfone, which is recognized for their stiffness, high strength, and high temperature performance. They are recommended for installations that may affect brass fittings. INSTALLATION/OPERATION: The fittings may be used with the stainless steel clamp system or the copper crimp ring system. Follow instructions for cutting, marking, inserting and clamping/crimping. They are recommended for ProPEX connection (non ProPEX fittings are not recommended with Type-A PEX.) SUMMARY: I always keep plugs on hand. Recommend anyone working PEX do the same.

You really do save over the price of individual fittings. The plugs are simple in design, and together with a crimp ring are all you need to end a run. The plugs are listed as being .485” and well, when I laid one on a tape measure to see if that was correct I saw no reason not to agree. The package is resealable so you can store the unused ones in a bag that clearly identifies what is inside. The Pex Barb End Fitting is easy to install. I couldn’t resist an attempt to use the Pex Plug to end a section of vinyl tubing secured with a butterfly hose clamp. That didn’t go very well. So, the 5-Pack saves you money over individual purchases and the Plastic Pex Barb Plug works perfectly when used as intended. How could I not recommend this product?

The body of the fitting has a great finish, no sharp ends or burrs. Provides a good tight connection. I have specified and used this type of fitting for many years. I am now retired and spend most of my time in my yard and garden. Sometimes it is necessary to bring water to areas where the sprinklers just don't reach, vinyl tubing and barbed, threaded or compression fittings are perfect to reach these goals. Yes, I like and recommend these fittings. Ref: https://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-1-2-in-Plastic-PEX-Barb-Plug-5-Pack-UP514A5/206133148 [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I find these to be very handy when I need to temporarily plug off a PEX line. They are super easy to install and remove. They come in a pack of 5. The package has crimping instructions on the back. Having a straight cut on the PEX is very important as is getting the crimp on square to the pipe and fitting. This makes is easier to remove the crimp when the time comes to remove the plug. I highly recommend having some of these around. They are a quick and easy was to plug a PEX line. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Right up front it's worth mentioning how handy it is that SharkBite color codes the PEX fitting packaging. These 1/2" plugs come in a pink-edged bag that makes it easy to seperate from the blue edged bag that has the 3/4" plugs. I usually use brass PEX fittings, especially where I'm expecting the installation to be in use for many years. I do, however, like to keep a few of the plastic plugs on hand for temporary ends in a PEX pipe system or to use for an emergency repair while I figure out how to lay out a long-term fix. The plastic plugs work just fine with a copper crimp ring and they fit PEX pipe ends perfectly. The 5 pack is a nice size to keep on hand with the PEX tools and fittings for those occasional plugs that you need to install. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

These PEX caps work best with what is still a fairly new product called PEX. PEX is a new system for plumbing. You'll notice a blue n red tubing. This is PEX tubing and with the connector shown you can very easily cap the end of a tubing off with no heat, no gluing needed. All you need other than what's pictured is a ring clamp and PEX crimping tool. It is possible as well to uncrimp the ring clamp should you ever need. These work with the shark bite clamps n shut offs also called ball cocks. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
