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.]

I used this to install a valve in a pex line and it could not have been easier. It was almost too easy if you can believe that. I cut the line and simply pushed it in on both ends and that was that. Nothing more to it. It also comes with a drain should you need that feature. I also unhooked it using a special removal tool and reinstalled it and it was fine. No leaks and is wonderful. Love it.

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.]

When my kitchen sink pipe burst over the winter and started leaking all over the kitchen, I used two of these to intercept the pipe down below in the basement, and shut the water off without having to cut off water to the entire house an inconvenience the whole family. It is definitely always worth having a few of these handy ready to go in an emergency! [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.]
