The SharkBite® PVC Transition Slip Tee allows you to add a line into your existing plumbing system while converting from Copper (CTS) pipe to PVC pipe. The slip feature allows you to cut into an existing Copper Tube Size Copper, PEX, PE-RT, or CPVC pipe and run out PVC Sch. 40, 80, or 120 from the Tee. The white collar center connection fits Sch. 40, 80, 120 PVC and also can be used on IPS CPVC Sch. 40 and 80 pipes. The Mustard collar ends fit CTS Copper, PEX, CPVC or PE-RT pipe.

Simply insert the slip coupling on to the pipe and using the SharkBite demount clip to slip the fitting back onto the other end of pipe completing the connection.
