Rated 5 out of 5 by from great if you need to make tight curves, with pipe protection... These work great, but as it turns out, I did not need them and will be returning them. Make sure you WEAR GLOVES when installing these! They are made by SharkBite, and by the very nature of what these do, and how they work, installing them can take a bite out of your hand very easily. Every curve I needed to make with my piping was accomplished without these units, however, if you do have any tight curves you need to make, and desire some protection for your piping, these are a great solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharkbite PEX pipe bend. A great product. Rather than buying a 90 degree elbow to suit PEX pipe, this way is a lot more economic and is quicker to fit. Having a sweep rather an elbow there is less pressure drop.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy and did not hold bend The bracket had no mid-bend support, and so stretched out to a 45 degree bend rather than a 90 degree. The other big store has a much better bracket for less than a dollar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works excellent! This is a great piece for turning the corner with flexible pex pipe. Just insert the pipe and you have a 90 degree corner. Looks great and holds the PEX perfect.

The pex supports "designed" for this do not fit in if the pex is in it, so you have to install the supports into this worthless garbage and then bend the pex which will either kink it or cause the bracket to snap out of this pile of garbage. This product also does not exist on the Sharkbite website, and there is literally NO available information for how to install this. The "engineers" at Sharkbite clearly never once attempted to use this product, they just designed it in theory on some computer and shipped them to Home Depots across the country to rip people off. I have to seriously question how much they could have possibly tested the reliability of their pex tubing and fittings while producing this without ever once testing it. It is impossible to achieve good results with this in less than 4 hours of <something I am not allowed to type> tinkering and luck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works fine The PEX goes in with a tight fit, so you'll need some strength. Holds PEX perfectly well, and bends with a nice tight arc. Good for roughing in if you want to stub out with PEX, but don't forget to anchor the PEX with a bracket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not for tight spaces For being labeled as a 90 degree bend, it doesn't give a 90 degree bend as my picture shows. yes it is much cheaper and easier than a sharkbite 90 degree elbow and PEX will eventually bend to get that 90, but for a tight space I would not recommend this item. When replacing a hose bibb/sillcock, I needed a sharp 90 degree and this item didn't work as labeled.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from READ THIS BEFORE YOU LAY ANY PIPE!!!! Learn from my mistakes.... Please, please please! I didn'... READ THIS BEFORE YOU LAY ANY PIPE!!!! Learn from my mistakes.... Please, please please! I didn't know about this product until after I put in my water line. Unfortunately, I had a tough bend over a joist that I needed to protect the pipe from rubbing against. I thought that this would be a good idea to use, however, It's impossible to put this on once the pipe is up. Its a good product and serves a great purpose! I now know what to do for next time.... Good luck, my fellow amateurs.

Questions

What size bend support do you recommend for 1/2 pex that is insulated? &nbsp;Will a 1/2 bend support still work, or would it be better to get a large bend support?

Asked by: KatL
Hello, We do not offer any bend supports suitable for use with insulated PEX tubing. The insulation will be too large to fit inside the bend support. We recommend the use of an elbow when installing insulated PEX at a 90 degree angle. If you have additional questions please feel free to contact our customer service department at 877-700-4242. Regards

What are the bend radii on these bends? Superpex has a max allowed bend radius of 3&quot;. Are these compatible with Superpex?

Asked by: yan s
Hello, Our 1/2&quot; bend supports are good for PEX tubing with a 5&quot; bend radius and our 3/4&quot; bend supports are good for PEX tubing with a 7&quot; bend radius. If your PEX has a bend radius of 3&quot; we would not recommend using these. Thank you
