Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved SO much time. I used these to replace my hot water heater a couple months back. It took me a total of 5 minutes to cut out the old water heater and connect the new one, provided that the old was already drained. It really helped that I could tighten the threaded end even after I had connected the fitting to the solid copper.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks Good The Sharkbite connection was easy. My issue was the threaded end. It should have come with a rubber washer. Instead you have to use the tape which adds time. Bought 2. After installing and turning the water on one had a leak. Had to take apart and do again. There was no way of knowing if it came with the rubber washer as it was not in the description or a picture showing inside the threaded end. Also the only rubber washers the store had was for garden hoses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from life saver The easiest way to hook up a water softener. And compared to other (multiple) adapters required, this is comparable in price.

Questions

Can I use the water softener fittings on a standard 65 gallon hot water tank (both the hot and cold inlets) or are they specifically made for softeners. Thanks.

Asked by: northern guy
Good morning, As long as your systems stays under 200 degrees Fahrenheit and 200 PSI, you should have no issues using this fitting with a standard water heater.

Greetings, As long as it doesn't exceed the SharkBite temperature/pressure and has the same thread, it should work fine.
