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!

Will the 3/4 SharkBite Ball Valve work inserted in a run of 3/4 polybutylene tubing? Thanks Much!

Asked by: Chris C
Hello, Our ball valves are not compatible with polybutylene tubing. You will have to use one of our polybutylene transition couplings to transition to an approved pipe/tube type first. Please see the link below. http://www.sharkbite.com/product/polybutylene-transition-couplings/ Thank you

I have 1/2" shutoff valve in my basement for my outdoor garden faucet that is leaking. May I leave my leaking valve as is and in open position, then install SharkBite 1/2" Ball Valve (22222-0000LF) in the upstream 6" apart? Do you see any problem?

Asked by: Kenny_YYZ
Good morning, We can't really advise on how to set up your system as we are not certified plumbers. As long as your system does not exceed our specifications, then there shouldn't be any issues using our fitting.

 We have a water back up sump pump and want to put a shut off after that so the rest of the house has the shut off but the sump pump doesn't. We have very high water pressure.  Will it be as strong as a  solder valve?  We have copper pipes.  Thanks. 

Asked by: Donna R
Hello, There are too many things to be considered to give an accurate answer regarding whether our valves are as strong as a sweat valve or not. We can say that our push-to-connect valves and fittings are perfectly suitable for pressures of up to 200 psi. Thank you

Is 1/2 inch ball valve part number 22222-0000LF directional for flow?  If so is it the direction of the shark symbol on the valve?

Asked by: Kenny G
Hello, Ball valve part # 22222-0000LF does not have a direction for flow. The ball valve may be installed in either direction. The shark on the valve simply shows that it is a SharkBite product. Thank you
