Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job for this old pipe. This part worked very well, after crimping there was not a sign of a leak and that has continued to be true.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from PB Ring Is Problematic Generaly, the SharkBites fittings are great. However, the writing on PB ring is embossed, which results in some raised spots and makes it difficult to tell if it has passed the go/no-go test. I cut it out and went with an AquaDynamic fitting I had on hand becaue my local HD only had 1 adapter in stock and I needed more that that for my project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed for my old PB pipe repair I had a cracked t-fiting on some older 1/2 BOW super-flex PB, since I couldn't find a replacement T, I used these transitions to put in PEX. I used 3 of these guys to do the transitions to the PEX, so I could use a Shark Bite T. I did the crimps on PB and the PEX using the Shark Bite crimper with no issues. All working great with no leaks so far.

Can I use a regular crimping tool on both rings or is there a special tool for the PB crimp ring?

Can you show an image of the completed connection? Can this be used with the crimping tool? I am confused as to what tools and parts I need. Thank you
Asked by: AZNative
I've included a picture of the completed connection. In the picture the Polybutylene pipe is on the left (brass color crimp ring), and the PEX pipe on the right (black color crimp ring). All you will need is the above SharkBite Coupling and a standard crimping tool. Be sure to get a good crimp on the connection, or you may end up with a leak (in which case you can re-do the connection).

Can you use the stainless steel crimp rings and ratcheting crimper with the Barb Polybutylene fitting?
Asked by: Darkar
I believe the wider space insert is for Poly I don't think the rings are different diameters but I would go with color matching

The two sides as well as the two rings are both different but I cannot find any directions? Is one side and one ring more appropriate for the PB or?

Asked by: jim
The larger diameter side of the barb fitting and shiny copper crimp ring is for the polybutylene pipe. The narrow side of the barb fitting and dark copper crimp ring is for the PEX pipe.

Do the old PB crimp tools work for PEX crimp rings/barbs

Asked by: PRgary
Hi, The rings for polybutylene have a different outside diameter. The crimp rings for both sides of this transition fitting have the same outside diameter. These crimp rings should be installed using a PEX/Barb Crimp Tool. http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-1-2-in-and-3-4-in-Dual-PEX-Copper-Crimp-Ring-Tool-23251/202270489

can i use a crimp ring on copper pipe

Asked by: bernie
Hi Bernie, Crimp rings can only be used with PEX pipe and barb fittings. If you need to connect polybutylene to copper, you can use a SharkBite polybutylene transition coupling and simply push the pipe into the fitting (no tools required.) http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-1-2-in-Brass-Push-to-Connect-Polybutylene-Conversion-Coupling-U4008LFA/202270632?keyword=u4008lfa

Does the Sharkbite crimp tool work for making the crimp on the polybuylene crimp ring or is a different crimp tool required?

Asked by: JB412
Yes, the SharkBite crimp tool will work on both the PEX and the polybutylene crimp ring.
