SharkBite is the Push-Fit connection system that is really taking hold. It’s the easiest way to join copper, CPVC, or PEX pipe in any combination with no soldering, clamps, unions, or glue. Just insert the pipe and the stainless steel teeth bite down and grip tight, while a specially formulated O-ring compresses to create a perfect seal. Disassembly is just as fast using the simple disconnect tool so fittings and valves can be easily changed and reused. They can even be rotated after assembly for easier installation in tight spaces. Get SharkBite and get a grip on your next plumbing project.

Are SHARKBITE fittings compatible with SIL-O-FLEX brand pipe?

Asked by: RPG1959
Good morning RPG1959, As long as the piping complies with ASTM F876 or CSA B137.5, ASSE 1061 states that the piping should work with a SharkBite fitting. From what I've found about Sil-O-Flex, is it doesn't meet the above and we would not recommend using our fittings on it.
