Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like shark bite products Easy to assemble and good durable outcomes do not always go together. But in the case of Sharkbite valves and fittings they go together very well indeed. I have quit buying sweat on valve fittings altogether in favor of these little gems. Cut, clean, slide, turn on the water and you are in business. This particular one has a drain built in so if you need to drain back a line to prevent freezing ( I hear that in some parts of the country it does freeze and they have something called winter) You can easily accomplish that with No need to take anything apart. I recommend Sharkbite wholehartedly. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like these fittings I like the SharkBite plumbing fittings because you don’t have to solder the pipes together. I have done soldering in the past but it is hard to keep your expertise up if you don’t do it that often. Especially in hard to access places where there is flammable wood or insulation close by it is easier to use these. I have used them before and they are still doing fine years later. Also they are easier to take off and reuse if you want to reconfigure your piping later. This fitting is nice because it has a drain valve if you need to drain the pipes. It also had a built in flange to screw the fitting to the joists or wall. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I needed this! I love PEX tubing, especially with easy SharkBite fittings. But when you screw/solder a valve into properly supported metal piping, you usually do not need added bracing. When you use slip-fit connections, especially on flexible PEX tubing, working the valve flexes the joints. SharkBite joints seem to stand up to this just fine, but it feels floppy. I end up with several more tube-clamps to hold it still. This nifty variant has screw-holes! Set on stud or joist, screw through, the valve feels solid. This variant also has the side drain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than those w/o drop ear feature 1/2 in. SharkBite Push-to-Connect Drop Ear Ball Valve with Drain is what I use now when replacing old shut off valves for my customers when they stop functioning properly & there's a way to secure it to either wood or masonry. These are also easiest way to install a new shut-off ball valve with drain when having shut off secured to something is preferred. Single lever control allows for easy operation and valve is perfect for drinking water where a shut-off is needed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use and install valves. I have used these type connections and valves now quite often, and this particular valve is extraordinarily easy to use. So long as your pipes (copper,pex, or pvc) are clean and round you will have zero problems with this fitting. These fittings totally get rid of those days of sweat soldering copper, or using stinky pvc glues, or clamping pex fittings onto the pipe. They also have a quick release for removal which in essence is a push inward 1/2 round device to allow you to push the lock back thus releasing the pipe its on. As for longevity, I recently finished building a new house and use mostly these kind of fittings, and after 4 years in service, I have had 0 (zero) leaks or other problems with them. I highly recommend them to quicken the installation of any plumbing job. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest replacement you can make These Sharke Bite Push to Connect ball valves are the easiest replacement you can make to any current old shutoff valve. Follow the written or video instructions and you will become the “expert” plumber in no time. No more dripping solder, burning studs or joists, no more burning your fingers, no more time waste draining existing pipes and allowing to dry. I installed this valve for a shutoff valve of an existing exterior hose bib which was located just above my main service. I was able to easily disconnect the pipe on the house side of the meter, then unsolder the existing old gate valve. I then just slipped this valve into place starting at the top, then working down towards the meter. Took less than 10 minutes and I have NO LEAKS. This valve comes with a removal tool which comes in handy for a re-do or removal. I use nothing but Shark Bite products these days as they are cost efficient and save time for repairs or even new work. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install value with drain The SharkBite ½ inch ball value with drop ear is designed to work with Copper, PEX, CPVC, and PE-RT half inch OD diameter pipe. It is an easy connect system, you measure and cut the pipe to length, leaving enough extra length of pipe to fit inside each connection (about an inch), and slip the connector on both ends of the pipe. You can easily rotate the valve on the pipe when the value is installed, and it can be removed using the SharkBite removal tool (a few bucks) to either reposition or reuse the value. I love these fittings as they eliminate the need to solder copper pipe, and can be used to change pipe materials without any additional adaptors. The value comes with built in PEX sleeves to provide rigidity, and the sleeves do not have to be removed if you use the fittings with copper pipe (although you can remove them with needle nose plyers). I’m using this value in addition to a ¾ inch to ½ inch tee to tie into an existing copper water line and run PEX pipe to a new outdoor faucet. I wanted a shut off value and this does the trick. Having the drop ear provides a solid way to mount the value, and having a drain port with cap built into the side of the value allows me to drain the line in the winter. Ball valve works smoothly. I am a big fan of SharkBite products, and this valve did not disappoint. The ease of use and convenience to install these fittings saves times and aggravation, and in my opinion is well worth the cost over a copper fitting you need to solder. I have never had a leak issue, and the fittings are suitable for potable water supply and meet most building codes. Value is rated for 200 psi and is lead free.
