I completely redid 50 y.o. copper plumbing with pex tubing. Coming off the 1" water main with 1" pex tubing seemed easy on paper, but 1" pex tubing is not as easy to bend once it gets a normal directional twist that occurs once you make one 90 turn begin another. The bend radius of the tubing is just too great to make 2nd or 3rd turns within the 2x8 floor framing cavity, even with plastic bend supports. So you either jump back to copper and solder up a couple 90 elbows with pex stubs on either end and spend 20-30 minutes, or cut the pex in 10 seconds and install the elbow in another 10 seconds and move on! Pricey, but time is not free and so are 1" copper fittings. Leak free so far ... a master plumber puts these things on boilers all day long!?!

not ideal for pex

These fittings seem quite reliable on copper tubing but less so on pex. I find it best to use a copper transition fitting from pex and then attach with the sharkbite. Much less chance...Read complete review

Comments about 1/2" x 1/2" Sharkbite Elbow (Lead Free):

Works great when you can't stop the water from coming out of the pipe. Just cut the pipe to the proper length and install the sharkbite and you are done. You might get a little wet but the job is totally done in a couple minutes.

      A:

      The 3/4" port can connect to 3/4" nominal copper, PEX, or CPVC (each of which has a 7/8" outside diameter).

  • 3/4" x 5/8" Sharkbite Reducing Elbow

    Q:

    My in-floor heating has 6 loops of PEX-AL-PEX tubing coming out to a custom copper manifold. I would like to convert to a PEX 6 loop manifold with flow control valves.
    Do you have fittings for PEX-AL-PEX to PEX tubing?
    Asked on 5/8/2012 by Ralph

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      There is no single fitting that allows you to connect PEX to PEX-AL-PEX. Assuming you have 1/2" tubing and don't want to use any special PEX tools, you can use a PAP-0500M fitting along with either a 450PXF03 or U072 fitting.

      You can also connect 1/2" PEX-AL-PEX directly to most radiant heat manifolds. Use part D4120500 with Uponor TruFLOW manifolds and part MA-50PAP with Rifeng manifolds.

    Q:

    Does Pex work with flexible copper? If so is the white insert used with flex copper?
    Asked on 4/20/2012 by Bill from Boston Ma

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      The white insert is only necessary with PEX, which has a unique inside diameter. You can keep the insert in the fitting when using copper, but it may cause a very slight flow reduction. SharkBite fittings work with flexible copper, but it's a good idea to keep a straight run of at least a few inches out of the fitting.

    Q:

    the inner insert does it need to be pulled out for use with copper and left in for pex or does it stay for all three types.
    Asked on 12/10/2011 by Rookie plumber from Saskatoon SK

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      You can leave it in. I have and I mixed copper and pex and I have not a leak one. Simple rule if the pipe won't insert because of the plastic insert then remove it.

      Answered on 6/20/2012 by Honeykaron from Baarstow, CA
    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      The insert can be left in with copper. The purpose of the insert is to stiffen PEX inside the fitting. It must be left in with PEX, but it's optional with copper and doesn't really serve a purpose.

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Yes, they can. SharkBite fittings work with copper, PEX, and CPVC (all of which have the same outside diameter for a given size).
