Information

The SharkBite Slip Ball Valve allows you to make a quick repair and add a shutoff valve to rigid Copper or CPVC pipe. Simply insert the Slip Ball Valve onto the pipe after you’ve cut out your section and use the Disconnect Clip to slide the fitting back to the other end of pipe which completes the connection. This valve is easily rotated after assembly to allow easy access to the shutoff even in tight spaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIYers Dream - Professional Nightmare As a DIYer this is a great technology that everyone should be made aware of. I had a leaky valve which was a old twist knob. All i needed to do was shut the water off, cut the pipes to the current length. Clean the copper and snap on the new value. Nothing else needed. NO soldering needed. So easy any beginner can use this. I am sure plumbers are not happy about Shark Bite cause it takes inflated labor costs away from them. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy valve I started using Sharkbite products after being introduced by a friend. I have taken on many home improvement projects over the years and plumbing can be one of the most difficult. Soldering joints can be tedious and time consuming. But with these Sharkbite products it eliminates this step. Simply cut, attaché a shark bite connector and then connect pie again. The connects are firm and I have had no leaks. I used this valve to place and additional shut off valve where one did not previously exists. It made the job much easier. It is well build and sturdy and the lever ball vale action is smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast + Simple + Effective + AWESOME!!!!! Every time I use a SharkBite product, I walk away with a smile on my face. This valve was no exception. SharkBite products are perfect for new work and perfect for making a repair. Last year during the frigid cold winter, these valves were out of stock in just about every store I visited. They are perfect to repair a frozen pipe. On of the best things about this valve, you can cut out the split portion of the pipe and still make the repair. The valve will fill in up to 2" of missing pipe. The only thing that would make this valve any better is a little cheaper price [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Idea- Useful for Emergency Fixes I have used Shark Bite products in the past and have been impressed with their easy installation. The 1/2" valve I would highly recommend for anyone who does maintenance work especially. The versatility of this product is amazing. It can be used on CPVC or rigid copper. You do not use glue or solder, so after you install it, the valve can be adjusted so the handle can be set in the position you want easily.I have not had any leaks using these either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best solution for the home plumber! Easy to install. Quality Construction I've been using Sharkbite products for nearly a decade now and simply love them. They never fail and they install so easily. Each component is built from high quality brass and steel, no plastic fittings here. I had to install a new water supply on the outside of the house and the only shut off was the main shut off valve by the water meter. This Sharkbite fitting allowed me to quickly add a shut off valve close to the area I was working in and let me turn the water back on to the rest of the house while I worked. Installation of this slip style ball valve could not be easier. You will cut 2 inches of pipe from the line you want to install the valve on. Line up the new valve and slide the long slip end onto the pipe first. Then you line up the remaining open end and shove the pipe into the fitting. Adjust the valve using the included orange release clip until the pipe is bottomed out in the non-slip end. It's all done in 30 seconds. The valve itself operates easily and the handle is large and strong. You get a solid stop whether opening or closing the line. Sharkbite saves you a fortune in plumber costs and gives you confidence that you won't have leaks and satisfaction that you did it yourself. I recommend Sharkbite connections to everyone I know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like these fittings I like the SharkBite plumbing fittings because you don’t have to solder the pipes together. I have done soldering in the past but it is hard to keep your expertise up if you don’t do it that often. Also I don’t have the equipment anymore. Especially in hard to access places where there flammable wood or insulation close by it is easier to use these. I have used them before and they are still doing fine years later. Also they are easier to take off and reuse if you want to reconfigure your piping later. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's like magic! I got this valve to replace an original shut-off valve on my water heater that no longer closes completely. The biggest challenge was cleaning the paint splatter off the copper pipe so it would be clean for the SharkBite. Installation of the new valve was simple - cut out 2.25" including the old valve, push on the long end, line up the other end, and use the included release tool the slide the valve back to catch both ends of the pipe. I used the SharkBite "Safe Seal Depth and Pipe Deburring Tool" from Home Depot to prepare the pipe ends and mark the insertion depth. I had my wife watch for leaks while I turned the water back on, and there were none. The quality of the valve is excellent and the instruction on the package are clear the well-written.

Questions

What's the difference between a ball valve and a slip ball valve?  How much pipe do I remove to install on a copper pipe where there is currently no valve?

Asked by: Jilll
Hello, Our regular ball valves are designed for applications where once the pipe is cut they can be spread apart enough to insert the valve. If your pipes will not spread apart enough to fit the regular ball valve you can use a slip ball valve. Please see the slip ball valve installation instructions in the link below. http://www.sharkbite.com/sharkbite/wp-content/uploads/SB_SlipBallValve_SpecSheet_061515.pdf Thank you

Want to install a 3/4" slip valve but confused by previous answers given in forum on gap. Answer 4 implies cutting up to 2 1/2". A10/A15 recommends up to 2". A25 says up to 2 1/4". Installation guide says 2 1/4". Which is correct?

The slip ball valve states it can only be used on CPVC and Copper but the standard ball valve states it can be used on CPVC, Copper and PEX. Why is this? Can the slip ball valve be used on PEX? Only difference I see is length.

Asked by: Travis28
Good morning, All slip featured products do not contain PEX stiffeners which are required when using our fittings with PEX. Because the slip side doesn't have a way to prevent the stiffener's from falling out, you would be unable to insure that the PEX will be properly support during the life of the fitting.
