SharkBite EvoPEX End Caps are the easiest way to cap off your PEX tubing lines. With no soldering, clamps, unions or glue required, it’s as simple as inserting the pipe into the push-to-connect fitting deep enough to be sealed by our specially-formulated O-ring. Once inserted, the stainless steel teeth bite down and grip the pipe. A green indicator ring will become fully visible in four slots around the fitting to visually display that the permanent inner-diameter connection is secure. This push-to-connect fitting is designed to make PEX-to-PEX connections in potable water and radiant heating (including underground or behind-the-wall) applications with no access panels required. Fittings are rated to 80 psi @ 200°F, 100 psi @ 180°F, and 160 psi @ 73.4°F.

I have some grey plastic pipe I want to cut and cap off. How to do?
If they grey plastic pipe is 1/2" or 3/4" polybutylene you can use our polybutylene transtion coupling to transition to an approved type of pipe. Once you have transitioned to an approved pipe you can use one of our end caps. Please see the links and approved pipes below. If the polybutylene pipe is any size other than 1/2" or 3/4" we will not have any suitable push-to-connect products.

CPVC (ASTM D 2846, CSA B137.6)

Can I use an 1/2 inch SharkBite end stop on polybutylene
No, unfortunately our end stops are not compatible with polybutylene (PB). To connect to PB you will need to use one of our transition coupling (link below). The transition coupling will allow you to transition from PB to copper, PEX, CPVC, PE-RT or HDPE.

Unfortunately, our EVOPEX fittings are only certified for use with PEX tubing that complies with ASTM F876/877, but you can use our SharkBite Universal Push-to-Connect fittings on copper. Please see link below.

I am trying to find a cheaper way to cap these house services and the brass end caps will likely get ripped off. Please let me demo some of the K520WP18 caps. We are working for a big Utility Auth., ECUA and this might help get AWWA approved! Need 200 ea.
We are currently in a soft launch for EvoPEX. We have limited suppliers in the Southeast and these can only be purchased by licensed contractors. If you feel you meet these requirements, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
