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 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.

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

Asked by: Adam
Yes you can use the regular crimping tool for both rings.

Why is the incorrect spelling for "Polybutelene" shown for this product? (Should be "Polybutylene".)

Asked by: Curious
Thanks for the observation. This will be corrected. Thanks.
