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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will never have to solder copper pipe again. Sharkbite products are outstanding (pricey - yes... I will never have to solder copper pipe again. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shark Bite Ball valve Previous 25 year old globe valves leak after time, causing ice build up in outside faucets, leading to pipe freeze and cracks. Utilized the SharkBite ball valves w/drains for my outside faucets. Very easy to install. Works great. And don't leak!!

What fitting will attach to the drain on the 22304-0000LF 1/2 inch, to allow a hose to be connected, or a drain line?

Asked by: Robert E
Hi - The thread on the outlet of this valve is 1/8-in thread. We recommend purchasing a 1/8-in Female Threaded Air Line and using that to connect to the valve and drain the valve. A search for "1/8 Air Hose" will yield some options that will work depending on what length you are looking for. Thank you for your interest in our product and if you have any further questions, please contact our Customer Service Team at 1-877-700-4242 and we would be happy to assist you!

Do you have a 1/2" slip ball valve with drain?

Asked by: Bryan M
You should make them! It would make installing winter shut-offs so much easier.

How do you open/close drain valve? I need a drain and shutoff valves in my hot water baseboard system. To drain water I connect water hose to drain valve, close shot off valve and open drain. Can I do it with this valve?

Asked by: Yantad
Good afternoon, You simply remove the cap gently with pliers. This will allow water to flow out of the ball valve.

I have an leaky valve w/vent installed in copper. I want to replace it with Ball Valve 1/2" w/drain, # 22304-0000LF. What is the "Cut Dimension" between the two ends of the copper pipe? Not Dimension "A" but Dimension "A" less 2X pipe insertions?

Asked by: Gerry
Good morning, You simply do as you stated in your last sentence. Take the measurement of A (3.43 inches) and subtract the insertion depth twice (for 1/2" the insertion depth is roughly 7/8") so it would go as follows: 3.43 - 0.875 - 0.875 = 1.68 inches left (approximately).

I am using this valve to do a 1 time air bleed, to get the air out of a heating loop. I need valve installed in opposite direction. I want to shut off water flow at the end of the loop, but unscrew bleeder cap to let the air out...will this work?

Asked by: John handyman
Hi John, SharkBite ball valves may be installed in either direction without problems. Thank you
