Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a Pex barb not a garden hose or poly barb. Exactly what I needed to attach a sillcock with 1/2" female iron pipe thread to a 3/4" PEX pipe. PEX pipe (like CPVC) is measured in "copper pipe size". So 3/4" PEX has external diameter of about 0.875" which is the same as 3/4" copper pipes and internal diameter about 10% less than similarly sized copper pipes, which has thinner walls. So 3/4" PEX has internal diameter of 0.677" (compared Io 0.745 for Type K copper) and both have an external diameter of 0.875. Iron Pipe Size refers to the internal and external diameters of the heavy old iron pipes, so a 1/2" iron pipe has external diameter 0.840, very close to 3/4" copper or PEX. This adapter is as advertised - it connects a 3/4" PEX pipe to a 1/2" IPS thread. Also be aware that garden hoses use 3/4" hose pipe threads, which look similar to but do not fit the 1/2" iron pipe thread.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PEX FITTINGS Make Plumbing Easy PEX Plumbing Fittings including the 1/2 inch male treaded fittings make plumbing so easy for the skilled DIYer. The 1/2 treaded fitting (male or female treads) is very useful for tub shower installs. The treaded fitting makes a nice tight connection in transitioning to PEX piping for the hot and cold connection. Note my experience says don't use these for the outflow connections as PEX fittings are a smaller diameter and can cause the tub shower value to not function properly...water drips/trickles out the shower head when filling the tub. Never the less, I'm a PEX fan and this issue is easily solved. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

These are the fastest way to install a new shower valve I can think of, and be assured it's going to last the lifetime of the valve itself. I like using the brass adapters although I am sure it's probably my age and strength of metal versus plastic. I feel like I can squeeze and thread them mercilessly and "know" it's going to survive. The speed of making a reliable connection with these, and sleeping well at night knowing it's a job done correctly, makes them invaluable. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great! Good Threads, Good Barb, Leak Free I used these fittings to connect a complex (to me!) shower w/jets. I crimped with the sharkbite 1/2 & 3/4 combo tool (also purchased at HD). BTW, the tool worked great but was tough to use in tight spaces when you had to use the 3/4" crimp. Dave

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used SharkBite products for several years now and have never had a bad experience with them. They are easy to use, they don't leak and are very reliable. The 1/2 IN. BRASS PEX BARB X MALE PIPE THREAD ADAPTER is no exception to this. They, like all SharkBite products have proven their worth. I only recently started using PEX and find that it is an excellent product when paired with SharkBite products. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the pex products. This threaded adapter makes it easy to quickly install/crimp new pex lines with a sure fit. The barbs hold the line in place and provide more than adequate space to use your crimp connection with out worrying about it slipping off the edge. I buy by the 5 pack to insure that I always have extras on hand, plus it makes them even more cost effective than using sharkbite connectors.. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The fittings are well made from quality material giving a good conversion from plastic to brass for a threaded connection. All edges are beveled giving a good feel with no sharp edges. No visible signs of flaws in the casting process or subsequent milling of the threads. All pieces in the pack looked identical indicative of good quality control in the manufacturing process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No leak final fix. These fittings should be the last repair you might ever make. I have used this fitting to replace my very old galvanized steel piping in my house. I love how forgiving PEX piping and fittings is. The tools, fittings, and materials are light weight and easier to get into tight places requiring less connections. I bought my own PEX tools through Home Depot for around the cost of a couple nice pipe wrenches. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Questions

Can I use these fittings on a burried pex water line

Asked by: SHANNE
Hello, SharkBite brass fittings are approved for burial but our fitting wrap must be used to prevent potential contaminants in the soil from negatively effecting the brass. Below is a link to our silicone wrap as well as a link to a video that goes over fitting wrap procedure. http://www.sharkbite.com/product/sharkbite-silicone-wrap/ http://www.sharkbite.com/how-to/how-to-silicone-wrap/ Thank you

Can these fittings be used on 3/4" PE pipe using a Sharkbite crimp ring to secure it?

Asked by: JohnW
Hello, Our barb fittings are not suitable for use with polybutylene tubing. The only barb fitting we offer that is suitable for use with polybutylene tubing is our polybutylene adapter (link below). This fitting is designed to transition from polybutylene tubing to PEX tubing. http://www.sharkbite.com/product/polybutelene-adapters/ Thank you

Will the UC116LF connect to a standard washing machine hose?

Asked by: katamara
If the piping is PEX pipe and certified to ASTM F1807 or ASTM F2098, then it will be fine. Anything else would not be certified for that fitting.

can I use the on galvanize T pipe do I need to look out for corrosion

Asked by: joey
Joey, Yes you can use this on Galvanized Pipe to transition to PEX Pipe. All SharkBite Push-to-Connect and Barb Fittings use high-quality DZR (De-zincification) Brass which is corrosion resistant. If you want a corrosion proof solution, then our Poly Alloy fittings will be another solution for your application. http://www.sharkbite.com/product/connectors/ Thanks for your question!
