Can't beat the prices from Supply House

Comments about 3/4" x 1/2" SharkBite Reducing Coupling (Lead Free):

These are the best in push connectors ... I have tried a few others and have on occasion had problems with the others ... Big thing is to make sure to de-burr the ends of the pipes (especially the copper so there is nothing sharp to catch the o-rings ... I only started using Pex Supply about a year ago ... You can't beat the prices that they have ...Was able to order online and pick up in warehouse in Farmingdale ... They are now moving it to New Jersey ... Going to have to figure out what we need before hand and order for mail delivery ... After 100$ delivery is free

Indispespensable for pump servicing

Comments about 1" x 3/4" SharkBite Reducing Coupling (Lead Free):

Often times I am replacing a hydropneumatic(well) tank in a cellar of a large house. You can grow old waiting for the water to drain out and be able to solder copper properly. I use these things as the final connection- a little residual water doesn't cause a problem. A side benefit is that it functions as a union, at about 1/6th the cost of a brass union.I keep a variety of sizes and mpt and fpt types on my truck.

Great for 3/4 Pex to 1/2 copper

Comments about 3/4" x 1/2" SharkBite Reducing Coupling:

This coupling was just what I needed to go from my new 3/4 in. Pex to some old 1/2 in. copper pipe I left in simply because of my limited time to install new water lines in my house.I finally got rid of all the old rusty galvinized water lines and installed new Pex piping.However, I left some copper in the laundry room and kitchen but The SharkBite couplings made hookups easy.

Shark Bite Fittings are Amazing

By Dan

from IN

Verified Buyer

Comments about 1" x 3/4" SharkBite Reducing Coupling:

It is surprising how well these things work! They seem too simple and good to be true but they do the job and don't leak.

I used couplers so I could implement a full-PEX system without replacing all my fixtures at once. I just cut the in-place copper tubing that runs to the fixtures and joined them with the Shark Bite couplers. Getting a good even cut on the copper is key and cannot be overstated. The ONLY joins that leaked were ones that I did not confirm a good cut on the copper. A quick re-cut and a little filing and the join was good to go. They never leaked on the PEX side.

I would definitely recommend these over imitations you might see at your local big box store. They may look similar but they aren't the same! I had to use a couple in a pinch but went back to replace them when I was able to get the Shark Bites I needed.

    Q:

    Looking to connect new 3/4" pex to old 1/2" copper is this the correct coupling to use? Does it not matter if it is copper or pex that is being connected for these couplings to work?

      A:

      Yes, it doesn't matter if it's copper or PEX. Tubing is measured on the outside diameter (OD). So half inch cooper is the same OD as half inch PEX, and that's how these fittings seal--on the OD of the tubing. Just remember to wiggle the white plastic ID support (meant for the PEX tubing) out of the fitting before inserting the cooper tubing.

  • 1" x 3/4" SharkBite Reducing Coupling

    Q:

    I'm wondering if this could convert my 3/4" copper water main to 1" pex. My reason for doing so is to maintain a wider inside diameter to my water heater. From what iI can tell is 3/4" copper is about the same I.D. as 1" Aquapex. Maybe I'm over thinking this, but 3/4" pex seems a bit restrictive to service my entire home.

      A:

      The sharkbite fitting can be used for this conversion. They fit both copper and pex. IE 3/4" sharkbites fit both 3/4 pex and 3/4 copper.
      I have 3/4 pex connected to my main water supply to form a manifold, and 1/2 pex running from the manifold to all endpoints. The pressure/volume seems just fine. You might lose pressure if you convert to 1" even though you gain volume. I'm far from being a plumber but just my thoughts.

      A:

      You could use this coupler to convert from copper to pex with out a problem.
      As far as supply goes. As long as your pressure is good from the street you
      would be fine replacing your main trunks inside your home with 1” or ¾” you
      would probably not notice a difference between the two except in price.
      Most homes are run in ½ pex with a 3/4” trunk. 1” would be overkill in my
      opinion. If your pressure is not good you can add booster pumps and
      reservoirs.
      PEX is the future of plumbing especially with the copper prices rising and
      theft.
      Hope this helps..

      A:

      This fitting will allow you to connect 1" PEX to 3/4" copper, but would not be able to adapt directly to your water meter. 3/4" copper has a .75" ID, while 1" PEX has a .862" ID and 3/4" PEX has a .671" ID.

    Is there a Shark Bite fitting that will fit over a 3/4 Galvinized pipe and convert to 3/4 copper?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      You would need to use a threaded SharkBite fitting to connect to threads on the galvanized pipe. The copper could connect to the SharkBite portion of the fitting.

      Answered on 3/27/2012 by PexSupply Staff from NY
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      In short, no. Galvanized pipe isn't generally uniform enough for Shark Bites and you need to use a dielectric union to avoid galvanic corrosion.
