Information

SharkBite Ball Valves are the easiest way to install or replace a shut-off valve into your potable water or hydronic water heating system. The push-fit connections allow you to join to Copper, PEX, CPVC or PE-RT pipe in any combination without a need for soldering, clamps, glue or unions. These valves come with a drain to allow you to empty the water line and then shut off the supply with no hassle. The valve is easily rotated after installation making it easier to reach the shutoff, or to work in tight spaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes life much easier... Has been collecting dripping water from the drain using the old valve, thinking the water might have come from the sprinkler system. Turned out the old valve couldn't seal tight any more after some valve experimenting (no water dripping after shutting down the main valve). This SharkBite valve made the replacement work so easy. Measure, cut, mark, and push in. It is actually a little longer than the original valve, which has also saved me from buying a slip coupling (needed if your pipe doesn't move much to make the connection). A little more expensive than the traditional sweat valve, but works great and saves lots of time. Good price from HomeDepot. No water dripping from the drain any more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE SHARK BITE If you can cut pipe you can install SharkBite. Measure twice, cut once. It is simple, it is clean, it is neat -- it works. I have installed various SharkBIte components in two house in the last year -- no leaks. I'm sold. I am now starting to use their PEX piping and am very happy with that as well. I am an amateur, not a professional and was reluctant to learn to solder, this saved me and possibly both houses. READ ALL INFORMATION YOU CAN FIND AND WATCH EVERY VIDEO YOU CAN FIND. Practice cutting and connecting a few times before trying it for real.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product that is easy to install. I installed two of these valves for future isolation of water lines in the event of low temperatures that could cause freezing and busted pipes. These valves have an added feature for draining after the vavle is close.

Great if you are in a hurry or afraid to use a torch I had an old multiturn brass shutoff valve with drain that weeps around the valve stem after years of draining the line to an outside garden bib. I finally got tired of hanging an empty drywall bucket under the shutoff valve (and one year the bucket was full!) and got this SharkBite 1/2 in. Brass Push-to-Connect Ball Valve with Drain as well as a SharkBite 1/2 in. coupler to replace the old valve. I also got the SharkBite Safe Seal Depth and Pipe Deburring Tool and SharkBite 1/2 in. Disconnect Tongs. The tongs are easier to use than the plastic tool and I used the tongs to disassemble the fittings after dry fitting everything to determine how long of new copper tubing I needed to get everything to connect correctly. The deburring tool removed any burrs from the cut ends of my copper tubing to make sure I don’t damage the O-rings in the SharkBite fittings when connecting the fittings. I could have used traditional brass and copper fittings (I’ve soldered copper many times before) but I was in a hurry to get the water back on in the house for the family. Although Sharkbite fittings are more expensive than traditional fittings, they can’t be beat if you’re in a hurry or you’re uncomfortable using a torch. And you can remove the SharkBite fittings in the future if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised & easy to install I used the Shark-bite shut off valve w/ waste to replace the Shark Bite slip T coupler & pressure gauge configuration, I used to verify the pressure while adjusting a water pressure regulator. Because it's basically the same length & gives me the ability to shut off water & drain line with 1 product.

Sharkbite products are outstanding (pricey - yes). If you are looking for a sure proof way to reconnect copper pipe without messing with having to solder, then this is the product for you. That said - I had to order this item from Home Depot and it took the better part of 2 weeks to get it to the store. So if you are in a hurry, you might want to check for these else where. HD does have a large array of Sharkbite products, so you might find what you need at HD.

Questions

When using the sharkbite shut off valve with copper pipe, do I need to pull out the inner white plastic sleeve? Or it is required to be there regardless of the pipe type...?

Asked by: PaulC
Hello, The tube stiffeners are required when using PEX, PE-RT or HDPE tubing but do not need to be removed when using copper or CPVC pipe. If you would like to remove the tube stiffeners when using our fittings with copper of CPVC pipe you may do so by using a pair of needle nose pliers. You must be careful to avoid damaging the O-ring and/or grab ring when removing the stiffeners. Regards

Can the 'drain' be used to supply water to a refrigerator ice maker, or a furnace mounted humidifier instead of the more-common-less-reliable saddle valve? Remove the cap and attach to a 1/4 inch supply line.

Asked by: MilongeroM
Hello, The vent/drain on this ball valve is not suitable for use as a water supply. A good alternative to saddle valves is our service slip tee adapter along with an angle or straight stop. Please see the links below. http://www.sharkbite.com/product/service-slip-tee-adapter/ http://www.sharkbite.com/product/angle-stops/ http://www.sharkbite.com/product/straight-stops/ Regards

Can I use my existing 1/2” copper water pipe. I need to replace a leaking gate valve and need to know if I should replace my copper pipe or retro fit the shark bite ball valve onto my existing pipe.

Asked by: Rob S 61
Hello, Yes, you can use your existing copper as long as it is not out of round, does not have any gouges or deep scratches and has been cleaned with a fine sandpaper or emery cloth. Best regards,

I bought a Ball Valve with Drain (#22223-0000LF) from Home Depot, however it doesn't have any obvious drain cap like in the pictures here! Is there another way to make this valve drain? If so, what is the proper direction to install this valve?

Asked by: Kurt H
Hello, Part # 22223-0000LF is our 1" push-to-connect ball valve that does not have a drain. Unfortunately, there is no way to add a drain to this valve. Part # 22306-0000LF is our 1" push-to-connect ball valve with drain. Part # 22223-0000LF can be installed in either direction but part # 22306-0000LF should be installed with the drain side of the valve on the outlet side of the line. Thank you

Asked by: Ron08844
