SharkBite Max push-to-connect fittings are the fastest way to connect PEX, copper, CPVC, or PE-RT pipe. A newly designed stainless steel collet retainer delivers additional strength and durability and provides a 250 psi pressure rating. SharkBite Max fittings don't require a PEX tube liner, and a re-engineered body allows you to insert the pipe using less force and greater ease. No soldering, clamps, unions, glue, or special tools required. After inserting the pipe, stainless steel teeth bite down and grip the pipe tightly while a specially formulated O-ring compresses around the pipe to create a watertight seal. The fitting can be rotated after installation for quick adjustments, and removing the fitting is just as fast with a disconnect tool, allowing fittings and valves to be changed or reused.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works if you can't solder I just bought this to replace an outside tap where I couldn't solder because the pipe was tight against a joist. I've soldered plumbing all my life, but thought I'd try this "new technology" for "non-plumbers". Deburring and aligning was the biggest challenge. I had to hammer the final connection, even though that's not recommended, but it didn't leak. I hope it lasts my lifetime like a solder joint would. .Recommended if you're not sure about your soldering skills.Engineering wise, there's no reason it's not going to work for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do it right and you won't have any issue Ensure you remove any rough edges inside and outside the cut. Also use a proper pipe cut tool for a straight cut!!! Works awesome...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product deserves 5 stars! I am sold on this solution! Consider the costs of calling a Plumber? Or, If you can soldier copper, concidering the space, fire hazard, or incomplete connections, because there is a little water in the pipe. This is the best solution, just make sure the inside of your pipe is smooth as well. Clean, debited, 90 degree or close cut. Absolutely fool proof!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't settle for substitutes! I've tried other brands of couplings - terrible. Tough to get on right, if you can, particularly in tighter pipe situations, impossible to get off, and just don't work well. I messed around all weekend with the other brand and it was a complete waste of time - with these couplings the job was done, and done right, in five minutes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When the Shark Bites... The shark bite was a godsend when I replumbed the cottage. Replaced as much copper as I could and have not had a pipe break since. Was a yearly occurrence with the copper in an impossible to drain system. Ease of use and the ability to take apart joints after the fact. Highly recommended. Price overshadowed by utility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with repair I used non shark bite 1/2 inch pex pipe and ot seemed to work fine although the manufacturer advises to use shark bite pex pipe. It was easy to assemble without crimpers or crimping tool which is why I went with this simple solution to my pipe repair. I recommend this product for beginner diy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shark Bite Connectors These are super for copper connections. Personally I don't feel as comfortable with PEX connections. I had a couple drips on a two different PEX connections when I first restored the water pressure.. No further issue after the initial drips, but my confidence is shaken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coupling Easy to use and easy to remove from the water pipe. No need to call plumber or any contractor for repair work of water line in house. No soldering no gluing... very easy.. press fit.

How far in do I need to push the fitting onto pipe?  Some fittings say 1”.  This fitting does not specify.

Asked by: Fred
Hi Fred, For a 1/2" SharkBite fitting the pipe needs to be inserted to the internal stop at 5/8" or 24mm. You can visit www.sharkbite.com for further installation tips. https://www.sharkbite.com/sites/default/files/files/SharkBite%20Installation%20Instructions%202020.pdf Thanks.

Does this fit copper pipe with 5/8" outside diameter?

Asked by: Fritz
Thank you for the inquiry Fritz, 1/2" SharkBite straight coupling fits CTS (Copper Tube Size) potable copper pipe. The OD for 1/2" CTS would be 5/8" so yes they will fit. Thanks.

Will Sharkbite work on Polypropylene tubing? Noticed that it is not named as an option. Thanks.

Asked by: Billy
No. There are specific quick connectors for polypropylene pipe as in underground sprinkler systems.
