I live in a remote area where it is hard to get qualified tradesmen to come and do a job. If you can get one it is expensive. So much for trying to get a plumber to complete a large remodel to our water system. When I saw this product it was like an answer from above! I could possibly complete this project and never need to solder one joint! After having this product in my house for two months now without a single sign of a leak I must give it a great endorsement. I connected copper to copper, copper to PEX and copper to brass. It all is working great. I can now do all the plumbing I need to without the expense of a high priced tradesman.

First time using a Sharkbite coupling, have to say I was a little worried but these things are great! Used it to convert from old copper water supply line to PEX. Easy, fast and no leaks, worth every penny.

  • 1/2" x 1/2" SharkBite Coupling (Lead Free)

    Q:

    I installed a 1/2" coupling onto a 1/2" copper pipe. The pipe does not pull out and has worked beautifully with no leaks.
    I recently noticed the the pipe rotates freely but does NOT pull out of the coupling. The line is not under pressure now but before I do pressurize the line I want to make sure that the rotation of the pipe is not a sign of a potential leak and that it will hold under pressure.

      A:

      This fitting (part U012) is designed for use with 5/8" nominal (i.e. 3/4" OD) PEX, copper, and CPVC. It would work with 5/8" hePEX, but you would need part U016LF for 3/4" copper.

      A:

      This item should be capable of connecting dissimilar material pipes like”
      Fits OD controlled copper, CPVC, or PEX pipe”.
      I used a Tee Sharkbite ¾ inch Tee to couple copper and PEX plastic pipes
      for the water system with ease without any issues. Make sure the dimension
      of the pipes are correct and prepare the mating surfaces and edges per
      manufacturer instruction without any rough edges or burrs. Use a proper pipe
      cutting tool and surface preparation so that matng will seat properly.

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      SharkBite fittings work with copper, PEX, and CPVC, all of which have the same outside diameters for pipe of the same nominal size. SharkBite fittings are not compatible with any types of PVC pipe (Schedule 40, Schedule 80, DWV, etc.). One way to connect 3/4" copper to 3/4" Schedule 40 PVC without soldering would be to use parts U088LF and 436-007 together.

      A:

      Not the one you chose, they only work on pipe measure by outside diameter,
      like pex, cpvc, copper. They might make a sharbite fitting with a pipe
      thread on one end, sharkbite on the other.

      No, but you can adapt the galv. Pipe (if it is threaded) with a shark-bite
