              I used these to hook up my baseboard heat Pex to copper save lots of time and make job easyer.

                    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.

                          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:

                            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.

                              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..

                              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?

                              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.

                              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.
