The SharkBite Poly Alloy Push-to-Connect Coupling is an efficient way to join multiple different materials with no specialty tools, solder, unions or glue required. These fittings are lead-free compliant, corrosion resistant, and are compatible with Polyethylene, Nylon, PEX, Soft Copper (must be round and in good condition). Installation is simple, simply push the tubing into the fitting and the stainless steel teeth will grip onto the pipe while a special EPDM O-ring compresses, forming a perfect watertight seal. Approved applications include: water filtration, reverse osmosis systems, ice makers, home/office coffee and beverage dispensing equipment, aquariums, air, gases, vacuum and liquids.

I didn't want to spend 99 bucks for someone to come and tell me I needed a waterline, so I researched pipe connections and found this idea on Youtube. It is the best $8 bucks I've spent. It is so easy to install and made a pro-job look so simple. No leaks...I am very pleased.

I EVEN DROVE BACK TO HOME DEPOT AND BOUGHT ANOTHER UNIT BECAUSE I THOUGHT THE FIRST ONE WAS DEFECTIVE. I PUT IT ON AND EVERYTHING WAS GOOD, NO LEAKS. FEW HOURS LATER IS WAS LEAKING AND CUT THE TUBE AGAIN. SO I REMOVED THE BROKEN PEICE AND REATTCHED IT, NO LEAKS. I WAKE UP THIS MORNING AND TESTED THE WATER LINE AND YOU GUESSED IT, IT LEAKS. THE PART IS JUNK!! I AM ONLY USING IT FOR THE WATER LINE THAT IS ON BACK OF FRIDGE FOR THE ICE MAKER. I HAD TO ORDER PART NUMBER WR02X11330 FRO GE AND HOPE THAT ONE WILL NOT LEAK. THESE PARTS ARE GARBAGE. THERE IS ANOTHER REVIEW ON HOME DEPOT OF THIS BRAND DOING THE SAME THING.
