Information

SharkBite Straight Stops combine push-fit technology with a straight stop quarter turn valve. This allows the valve to control water flow to household plumbing fixtures, and provides easy shut-off of water flow for maintenance and repair, if necessary. These valves require no solder, clamps, unions or glue. The push-to-connect end allows you to push on to Copper, PEX, CPVC or PE-RT pipe easily. This product can be easily rotated after assembly for easy installation, even in tight spaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great, Slips on Easy, Perfect for Icemaker Connections These quarter turn valves work great for hooking up things like icemakers. Icemakers usually need 1/4" supply lines and this valve fits the need perfectly. I have this pushed onto 1/2" CPVC pipe, and then connected to a braided steel line to the icemaker. I can shut down the icemaker water supply to move the fridge with just a quick quarter turn of this valve. It works smoothly and easily. These Shark Bites allow you to make fast, clean, quick installations of shut-off valves in tight areas. I have used these for quite a few connections that needed shut-offs and they always work great. I will continue to use them whenever I can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Sold! So I was in the process of installing a new faucet in an 85-year-old house and realized that there were NO shut-off valves anywhere to the copper water pipes leading upstairs, save for the main house shut-off. I'm not a plumber by any stretch, and when the guy at Home Depot suggested Shark Bites, I was a bit skeptical. But I have to rave-- these things work like a charm!! Simply cut the pipe (leave at least 1.5" for the Shark Bite to slide over), hit the pipe with an emory cloth 'til it's shiny and burr-free, slip on the Shark Bite and you're done! Amazing! And it doesn't leak a drop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievably Good I have worked with all known types of plumbing for forty years (brass, copper, steel, ceramic, rubber, glass, miniature, PVC, medical equipment, housing, ranch, irrigation, etc., etc.) except PEX pipe. I had no faith whatsoever that a simple replacement of a PEX valve in a manufactured house would be a quick drip-free job. Wow was I wrong! The Sharkbite valve slid on easily, and surprisingly enough the seals actually work. I installed three valves in a bathroom over a month ago, and all three have worked perfectly. I am so pleased with Sharkbite that I now think that for my next re-plumbing of a house I might choose PEX and Sharkbite valves. No glue, no Teflon, no goop, no heat, no solder, no wrenches, no strain, just cut the pipe and slide the valves on; unbelievably easy. Sharkbite saved me days of re-plumbing, and I'd give it one-hundred stars if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooo easy and awesome! We have cpvc water supply lines. Had to replace the shut-off valve to the toilet because it was hissing. Originally, the shut-off valve was a compression solder weld with a multiturn handle. I wanted a 1/4 turn. The Sharkbite was so easy to install. I used a circular copper pipe cutter to cut the cpvc just below the weld and pushed the SharkBite on until it clicked and couldn't go any further. Not a drop of water leaks and it took me a total of 5 minutes...the longest part being cutting the cpvc pipe!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for DIYers Push-to connect valves might seem expensive, but they're cheaper than a plumber and allow DIYers who aren't comfortable with soldering an opportunity to do some plumbing upgrades. They're also great when you have a main shut off valve that doesn't fully shut off which can make soldering difficult. I used my first first push-to connect valve over 6 years ago and it's still working perfectly. Also, I love the quarter turn stop valve, it's the only type of valves I utilize. Much better quality and longer lasting vs the older multi turn valves. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

This was the perfect valve for an ice machine with 1/2" copper coming in and 1/4" tubing going to the ice maker. I'm really starting to like the push fit that shark bite offers they are so much faster compression fittings and so easily removable, took me awhile to start using them being a plumber for 30 years I always used compression or solder on copper. I was shocked to see the valve was certified for 200 PSI and 200F in wall and underground use. The best thing about shark bite is you can use it on Copper PEX CPVC. I'm really going to use it more often on these small type repairs. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The valve is so easy to install, simply cut and clean the pipe and push the valve onto the pipe. I used this on PEX pipe but it can also be installed on copper or other materials with same results. I have yet to have a leak with this or any other Sharkbite fitting. It has a shiny chrome finish that looks sharp. I like the quarter-turn style because the valve I replaced was a pain to turn 360 degrees plus to get the water shut off. Now only a quarter-turn does the job. A well made valve that I would highly recommend to friends and family. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

SharkBite has come up with a very easy solution for DIY'ers who might need a simple solution for installation of a shutoff valve that transitions from 1/2" copper, PEX, CPVC, PE-RT to 1/4" tubing such as is or can be used with toilet installations and such. The SharkBite fitting provides for simple, push-on connections to connect at both the inlet and outlet ends. The valve is a 1/4 turn valve and it is smooth and certain. The fitting is chrome and it comes with plastic, chrome-finish trim pieces for both inlet and outlet ends that snap into place to hide the points of connection and provide for a finished look.

Questions

WHAT IS THE ROUND END FOR THAT SWIVELS

Asked by: DON B
Hello, The round chrome plated escutcheon is designed to prevent the tan release collar on the valve from accidentally being pushed in and releasing the valve from the pipe/tube under pressure. The escutcheon is also designed to hide the tan release collar when used in visible installations such as toilets and pedestal sinks. Thank you

I’m upgrading my inside waterline from 1/2 to 3/4. Do you make either a straight stop or angle stop that is 3/4 x 3/8? If not do you suggest reducing the line diameter back down to 1/2 just before the sinks/toilets, or is there another way?

Asked by: Andrew r
Hello, We do not currently offer any of our stop valves with a 3/4" inlet. The line will need to be reduced from 3/4" down to 1/2" prior to the sinks/toilets. Thank you

What is the silver collar with the opening in it, used for on the straight stop 1/4 turn valve? Is it used to lock/unlock the fitting? Does it stay on after the valve is installed? The pictures on the package are not clear as to it's purpose.

Asked by: Mike Meyer
Hello, The chrome collar that is included with our push-to-connect stop valves covers up the tan collar on the inlet so it is not visible when used with toilets and sinks with exposed valves. The chrome collar can also be removed and turned around to remove the valve from the pipe/tube. We recommend leaving the chrome collar on the valve after installation. Thank you

Do the straight stop valves reduce water flow when used on 1/2" copper pipe to 3/8" compression?

Asked by: Dave E
Good morning, No. As long as your system is properly spec'd to supply your facility with proper water flow to fixture, you won't have any issues or reduced flow.
