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.

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 I had a leaky valve in the attic space. I have always been a fan of soldered copper fittings and they have always worked well once I got them done. I needed to put in a cut off valve in my attic and was having trouble with getting a pipe empty enough to be able to get e solder joint to take. I happened to look at the display in the store with the Sharkbite system and thought it might work and get me out of my predicament. It is just too easy to install these fittings and I will use them whenever I have to do something tricky in a hurry. I may in fact never solder a valve in place again. I do wish the price was a little lower but I guess the few I use are worth it just to get it done. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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 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. 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!

do you offer a 1/4 ball valve, if so where can I buy them, and if not, then why not, kind of useles to offer 1/4 fittings and no valve in that size

Asked by: Chip12977
We do not offer in line 1/4" stop valves. We do offer a full line stop valves that work with 1/4" (3/8” OD) pipe. There is not a point of a 1/4" stop valve as it should be reducing from a larger pipe down the line.

where does one obtain the removal tool?

Asked by: elliven12
Good morning, Which ever vendor sold you the SharkBite fitting, they should have access to SharkBite disconnect tools. Some vendors may not have all our products on their shelves, so you may have to work with them to special order the tool you need.
