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. 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 Easy install, works great! I installed this last winter to replace the old corroded cold water supply valve when we replaced the hot water tank. Also has the Sharkbite supply lines. The HD guy explained how to do it and it took no time at all, He also said keep removal tool on line so you don't lose, you can see it just above valve in pic I just recently checked the valve and no leaks all is still secure. It was great not having to sold joints and it is a solid fit. Planning on buying more to install additional shutoff valves around house this winter as the builder who did our house in 80's did bare minimum code meaning only a main supply cutoff, none for other zones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works!! I bought the 3/4" ball valve and had it installed within 5 minutes. Did not leak and the best part is that I didn't have to sweat copper pipes creating all those horrible solder fumes. Last time I had to sweat copper pipes my wife and kids couldn't take it so she ended up taking the kids out of the house for hours. After I finished installing the 3/4" valve on the water softener the 1/2" shutoff valve into the boiler started leaking when I opened it up so I headed back to Home Depot to buy a 1/2" ball valve, 1/2" straight coupler and some 1/2" Cu pipe. It took me about 10 minutes to install this 1/2" valve with coupler. amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the extra cost I've learned to keep a couple of these in my plumbing box for the many times that I run into a valve that can't be shut off, needs to be replaced, but the line can't be drained. Soldering in these circumstances is impossible, and the speed of mounting a valve like this can't be beat with a compression fitting. One caution -- debur the copper well, because you can't scratch the o-ring inside. If you do, it won't seal well and you'll have to start all over again. What a solution -- permanent, doesn't cost all that much more than a regular brass valve, and installation is a snap. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAST AND EASY- LOVE IT!! This valve is made of superior quality. If you are making a repair, all you need to do is cut out the bad portion of pipe and slide this new valve into place. If, for some reason, you need to take the valve back off, it as simple using the removal tool and sliding it back off. It also, works great for new installations too. If you are not a plumber or not comfortable with soldering, than Sharkbite product s are they to go. I think Sharkbite products could be a little cheaper, but you must remember, many times these products allow the us to do the job without calling a plumber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ball Valve to Shut off Section of Water Pipes for Hose For Winter Made sure I asked our fellow Home Depot Advisers before I allowed myself with plumbing stuff. I look at all the different options to splice into the current wet side of the house & run some needed hose outlets. I was able to cut into my current copper line & place a ball valve before installing the rest of the lines for the house hose outlets. Wanted a shut off Valve easy to access & Positive shut off for winter draining for no freeze pipes for the hose outlets after draining. I Used PVC to run in the crawl space for 3 spots. 2 hose hook ups were installed on the front of the house & 1 for the back. Was able to connect with no leaks & was easier than I expected. Think it out & put it on paper... Go Forth With Confidence! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for adding a valve to an existing pipe the slip version of the valve is designed for adding a valve to an existing pipe. The slip feature allows a small section of pipe to be cut out and then the this product slides onto one side and can then be pulled back to also connect on the other side of the gap. This means you do not have to add a slip pipe in addition to the valve, saving money, time and space. Sharkbite fittings can also be rotated so you should have no problem getting the valve handle in the optimal orientation! Installation could not be easier. Cut the pipe using a proper pipe cutter, but it off with a Sharkbite tool, slid one side of the valve on, use the supplied clip to then pull it back onto the other pipe. Done. Can be used with PVC or copper! No glue, tape or joint compounds needed. Can be resued. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am amazed! I bought three of these valves about two weeks ago. I was tired of running outside to shut the water off to everything for a small job in the bathroom. I'd been worry if they would work or not since I had never used anything from SharkBite before. I've been a locksmith my entire life......NOT a plumber. So today I decided to give it a shot. OMG.......it was so easy. I installed all three of them within 15 minutes! Turned the water back on and checked for leaks........not a single drip! The SharkBite system is truly amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME! Just make sure you hear the POP sound! The shark bite devices are awesome! Just make sure you listen and hear the POP noise when you push the shark bite into a pipe. Also, be careful if you are attaching this to existing piping because you don't want to put too much force onto the plumbing system, which might cause leaks or weakening down the line. I LOVE THESE THINGS!

Questions

I installed 1/2" X 1/2" BALL VALVE (#22222-0000LF) on my 1/2" copper line today. I noticed that I can rotate the ball valve after my installation is that normal?

Asked by: Jeff B
Hello, Our push-to-connect fittings and valves are designed to be able to rotate on the pipe. Thank you

This may be a dumb question, but how do I install the ball valve within the run of copper water pipe?  Meaning, does the valve slide further to one side, then back in the other direction to seal on the other side?

Asked by: tedv
Hello, Once the copper pipe is cut you will need to be able to spread the pipes apart enough to place the valve in between them. If your installation does not allow the pipes to be spread apart you can use one of our slip ball valves. Our slip ball valves are helpful in applications where there is minimal available movement in the pipes. Please see the link below for more information. http://www.sharkbite.com/sharkbite/wp-content/uploads/SB_SlipBallValve_SpecSheet_061515.pdf Thank you

For your ball valve in a copper pipe system, do I remove with pliers the 2 plastic pieces that it comes with? Thanks.

Asked by: Steven L
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 tube stiffeners. Thank you

Do you make this type of fitting in a 3/8 size for a copper pipe??? It’s very old pipe.

Asked by: Joseph y
Hello, At this time we do not offer push-to-connect ball valves suitable for 3/8" pipe/tubing. We do offer a 1/2" to 3/8" reducing coupling (part # U009LF) that you could use to transition pipe sizes. You will want to make sure the pipe is in good condition as imperfections on the outside of the pipe could prevent the fitting from getting a watertight seal. http://www.sharkbite.com/product/reducing-couplings/ Thank you

I need to replace a 1" ball valve. Do you make a 1" slip ball valve with drain?? I see you make one without a drain. If you do that would save me a lot of hassle having to splice in a short section of 1" pipe. I need a drain vent though. Any suggestions?

Asked by: Joel H
Hello, We do not currently offer a 1" slip ball valve with drain. You will have to use a short length of pipe along with one of our ball valves that feature a drain. Thank you

Does the ball valve have to be in a special direction ??

Asked by: Steve milillo
Hello, The only one of our ball valves that should be installed in a particular direction is our ball valve with drain/vent. The side of the ball valve with the drain/vent should be installed downstream so you can turn the water off and drain the line. http://www.sharkbite.com/product/ball-valves-with-drainvent/ http://www.sharkbite.com/product/ball-valve-drainvent-mounting-bracket/ http://www.sharkbite.com/product/barb-ball-valves-drainvent/ Thank you
