[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 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.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] SUMMARY: GREAT FITTINGS TO KEEP IN YOUR SUPPLY BAG. 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.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The ½” Plastic Pex Barb Plug (5-Pack) is a smart purchase. 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?
