Reliance Worldwide Corporation, manufacturer of SharkBite, supported the move to Lead Free plumbing in January 2014. We are moving to a completely Lead Free product range and the vast majority of our products are now available only in Lead Free material.
Note we currently have some remaining stock of standard material for non-potable applications. Please contact Customer Service to inquire as to availability.
SharkBite Push-to-Connect Fittings
- The SharkBite push-to-connect range is made from Lead Free DZR Brass and all products were converted as of October 2012.
- The standard material versions of SharkBite push-to-connect fittings are no longer in production, but we do continue to offer a small range of 5/8″ fittings in standard material, specifically intended for radiant heating applications. As a running change, these fittings will be converted to Lead Free in due course.
- Our SharkBite 2XL Large Diameter fittings have been Lead Free since their introduction in February 2011.
