Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellet product This is for a review of the 10 pack of 3/4 barb couplings. I've used these many times in the past. They are great quality finish and materials. These are the best way to join two pieces of PEX together. I wish 3/4 was the actual inner diameter, but sadly, it is not. However, since this is the 'stnadard' PEX sizing, I can't ding the product for it. It is appropriately size for the PEX size, it's intended for (3/4 in). I have used half of this pack. None have leaked. I was late to using PEX until 4 years ago. So far, I'm completely sold. It's a huge time saver, and the PEX piping will survive freezing. The fittings MAY. I recommend these, since they are a better value in a 10-pack. Nice quality. Use the correct clamps, and tool. They work great! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Plumbing Connection! The 10 pack of PEX 3/4" Couplings is a great value and a quality product. Pex is so much easier to work with than copper and great for the DYI plumber. The 3/4" PEX application provides the water volume to service multiple supply fixtures and the 3/4" Coupler enables joining 2 3/4" pipes for long runs.. Buying the 10 pack saves you money and ensures you will not run out of this often used connection [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as intended What can you say about a PEX crimp coupler? It does the job and is easy to install. When used with PEX tubing and the proper crimp ring, this gave me the ability to make changes to my kitchen layout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PEX on brass fittings-- great stuff! We were remodeling kitchen and bath; also the existing plumbing was troubled. I ripped-out about all of it and did it up with SharkBite PEX tubing, fittings, and rings. I love PEX. Easy to cut and fit, low cost. For connecting to existing pipe, SharkBite slip-on fittings work very well. For PEX-PEX connections, they work fine and never give trouble but the cost adds up. For more than a few permanent PEX-PEX connections you want the PEX ring-crimper, the deburring tool, crimp-fittings and crimp-rings. The tools allow you to use these much lower cost crimp fittings. The fittings come in both plastic and brass. The plastic fittings generally work fine, but could be broken with excess abuse (I'm kinda abusive). The brass fittings won't fail until the PEX tubing fails (and it's awful tough). In a for-profit job the plastic is a clear winner. For my own home work, the brass fittings look and feel so much better that the added cost is worth it to me. And as with all SharkBite products I have used (most of them now!), the stuff is excellent quality, goes together real easy, and never gives trouble.

Questions

what PSI rating are the brass barbed couplings? We have clamped rubber hosing on them and when running 150psi of water pressure through them, the hosing is blowing off. The inside diameter of the hose is 3/4 and we are using a 3/4 coupling.

Asked by: Thomas B
Good morning, Our barb fittings can withstand up to 200 PSI. If your hose is blowing off, it sounds like you may be using a hose with a crimp/clamp that is not designed to work with our barb fittings. We'd love an opportunity to speak with you and learn more about your issue. You can call our customer service team at 1-877-700-4242 between 8 am - 6 pm est Monday through Friday or by e-mail at techsupport@cashacme.com

I am connecting to 3/4" Polybutylene to PEX. Can I use the 3/4 in. Brass PEX Barb Polybutylene Coupling? Do you have a clamp version of this fitting? Can I use the clamp tool on both the Polybutylene and PEX pipe. What is the kit # and tool #

Asked by: stevee
Hello, The SharkBite PEX Barb Polybutylene adapter (Part # UC4016LF) is designed to be used with a crimp ring only. We do not have a clamp version of this fitting and would not recommend using a clamp with it. Thank you

can barb connectors with crimp rings be used to connect pex to cpvc?

Asked by: CharlyO
Good afternoon, Barb connections are only suitable for PEX. CPVC is too rigid to compress in with the ring.

I am running a exterior wood burning furnace and the lines to the house are a 5/8 TPEX line, the line is steel braided on the inside of the TPEX. The line is split will the 5/8 bite work on this line 3/4 and 1/2 will not. Thank you

Asked by: tlab4x4
Greetings Tlab4x4, As long as the pipe is not multilayered and meets either ASTM F876 or CSA B137.5, our SharkBite fittings should work.
