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.

        Comments about 1/2" x 1/2" SharkBite Coupling (Lead Free):

        These Shark Bite fittings have to be the wonder to the world of plumbing. I was redoing my swimming pool cabana and these couplers saved me a tremendous amount of time in not having to solder copper in several almost impossible to get to locations. Can't say enoough Cut the pipes, press together and presto no leaks.

                                            I bought a few of the SharkBite items to use on a temporary basis while I was redoing my house a section at a time in PEX, removing the old (really old) copper and galvanized pipes and fittings.

                                            Finding the SharkBite fitting really well made, easy to use and remove (with the tool) and allowing some rotation at the joint, I am going to use them permanently

                                                        great for connecting to existing plumbing; 1/2 copper or 1/2 pvc I was using new pex 1/2" pipe. Just press in for a leak proof coupler.

                                                        I did have a problem with one connection to 1/2" pvc though! the pvc was older & brittle & the plastic insert from the sharkbite wouldn't fit inside the pvc forcing me to make an alternate connection.

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.

I wouldn't use these except as a temporary fix. I don't trust these as permanenet solutions because I think the o ring seal inside will break down over time and leak.
