SharkBite PEX tubing is a cross-linked polyethylene pipe for a range of residential and commercial plumbing applications. This pipe is approved for all potable water systems and is also available in red and white colors. SharkBite PEX is approved for crimp, clamp or push-to-connect plumbing systems. The pipe comes with a repeating SharkBite imprinted pattern which serves as a visual aid to determine if the tube has been inserted correctly into SharkBite Push-to-Connect fittings. This feature only works if the tubing is cut between the SharkBite imprint pattern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+ Product for Easy DIY Installation Don't doubt yourself if you are thinking about a plumbing job with PEX. It's super easy. This product is way cheaper than copper and fittings are easy to complete. I am a financial advisor with no plumbing experience and I refit my whole house in a day. Two points to pay attention to: First, if you use copper rings, get the tool for the job, don't try and use the cheap crimper that uses vice grips close (and remember that it's hard to crimp in certain angles). Also, when you fit the PEX to your hot water supply, make sure that you don't have to keep some copper touching the unit, per your building codes. Other than that, super easy!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True Time Saver This was my first experience using a pex product. I used this tubing as a supply line from my well to my cistern and from the cistern to my home, over 200 feet. I warmed the tubing by laying it in the bed of my truck which helped with the plyability and was able to install it in my trench with ease. Much quicker then using PVC and has a wall thickness comparable to schedule 80. Because the pipe is underground, I did not feel comfortable using plastic push on fittings, and the brass push on fittings were a little pricey, so I invested in a crimp tool and utilized lead free brass fittings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Water tastes like plastic I did all the plumbing in my house with this. My complaint is that the water tastes bad from the faucets that have the longest length pipe going to them. You can definitely taste the plastic. The upstairs bathroom water is undrinkable, and you can even smell plastic in the shower when you turn it on. You have to leave the water running a while until you get decent water. It wasn't too difficult to install, but is more stiff than I expected and tries to go back into the coil shape. For the entire house, there was two leaks that I had to redo. I used the "better" stainless crimps and the tool from HD. Not a big deal, but it scares me because I drywalls over a lot of pipe before pressurizing the system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharkbite PEX This is my first time using PEX. Cutting it is easier than I expected. There's no ratcheting cutter needed for this stuff, Buy a decent single-action tubing cutter and you'll be happy. When I cut the tubing originally I don't believe it was cutting square because of the curve of the pipe. The best way to cut it is to lay the tubing in sideways to the curve (if that make sense). Uncoiling the tubing is a little bit of a challenge. Make sure you leave the wrapping on and uncoil from the center.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value PEX is wonderful to work with. This Sharkbite brand pipe is flexible, good quality, and a great value for the money. I was able to install a new water line under my house at a fraction of a cost of hiring a plumber to do it. Even after the install, I still have A LOT of pipe left for future work/repairs. Just make sure to do your research and have the correct tools in place first before you work with PEX pipe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from very difficult to get straightened This is a great product but if you need more than the 10 foot lengths like I did, you have to buy it in a roll. I eventually had to use hand pipe bender mounted in my vise to "reverse" the curve so I could get some straight runs. Even heating it didn't help much. I don't know how else they could package long lengths so just be aware it likes to stay curled up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just redid my hot water lines with PEX : ) Just redid my hot water lines with PEX : ) If you have a pipe location that is not in the sun and will not be chewed by rodents I reccomend PEX for the do it yourselfer. We have a relatively small home with 1.25 bathroom. The hot water flow to the shower had been slowing down so it was time to re-pipe. PEX costs a small fraction of the price of copper (45 cents/ft vs. $3/foot) and since it is somewhat flexible it needs fewer elbows and all Sharkbite PEX can withstand 190 degre water at 80psi. I read the istallation guide at the manufacturer's website and read professional plumbers who advised against the o-ring based sharkbite quick connectors (they fear the o-rings will get brittle and fail over time)...I went with the crimp-method of attaching the PEX to the connectors. I emailed Sharkbite as well to ask if there were any prefereed insulation materials and learned that either of the foam insulations sold at HD would be fine. PEX is thicker walled than copper so the main branch was done in 3/4" PEX and the offshoots to low water flow areas (sinks, toilets, and washer were done in 1/2" PEX My home has a tight crawlspace and I just tapped into the galvanized pipes in the wall rather than fret getting pipes into the walls. The installation took me a full day and ~$200 in parts. My wife and daughters are happy with the improved water pressure and I liked using a material that is supposed to last a lifetime and costs a fraction of copper and was relatively easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best you can buy I like this better than the other brands I buy because it seems to have a thicker wall. It works perfect every time, but since is is so thick you have to uncoil it as you use it. But that is because it is better than the rest!

Can the white PEX 1" tube be connected to schedule 40 1" connectors? Can PEX handle water from a water softener? What is the PSI rating of PEX?

Asked by: Joe ZZ
Good morning, PEX pipe can only connect to PEX fittings. PEX can be used in systems that contain potable water or up to 100% glycol solution. As long as your water meets those criteria, you should be okay regarding toughness. PEX PSI rating is dependent on temperature. You can find the following information in our installation guide on page 11 - Link: 160 psi @ 73.4°F (23°C) 100 psi @ 180°F (80°C) 80 psi @ 200°F (93°C)

Hello, The difference between our red, white and blue PEX tubing is just the color. Some installers like to use colors for hot and cold water distribution line identification (red for hot and blue for cold). Thank you
