Water Heater Solutions
Valves, fittings and flexible hot water heater hoses for tank replacements, tankless installations and new construction jobs.
Water heater connections for a clean install, even in tight spaces.
Water heaters are one of the most important components for providing comfort in homes. However, installations and repairs often take place in tight closets or confined spaces. SharkBite’s range of water heater products make completing any job easier with clean, leak-free connections, regardless of the space. Whether installing a water heater with PEX, copper, PE-RT or CPVC, our connection kits, flexible water heater connectors and full scope of valves and fittings make the job simple.
Water heater installations often happen in confined spaces that are out of sight and difficult to access. Due to energy efficient NAECA regulations passed in 2015, water heaters now require more space for installation. Larger tanks add extra difficulty when replacing water tanks in an already small space. SharkBite makes installing a water heater with PEX or other pipe types easier with a complete range of hoses, valves and fittings that can be installed without bulky tools, harsh glues or soldering.
Flexible water heater connectors easily connect misaligned water lines caused by larger tanks and are available in both corrugated and braided stainless steel, designed to make tight turns without kinking. Flexible hot water heater hoses with integrated ball valves are also available for code compliance and easy shut-off when servicing.
Whether installing in bulk for a new construction build or replacing an old tank, the setup and tools needed for a tankless water heater installation are entirely different compared to a traditional water heater install. Tankless water heaters take up less room, and connections are hosted on the bottom of the tank — which can often make reconnecting the lines difficult. SharkBite makes this easier with flexible water heater connectors that bend without kinking to reconnect lines. Whether plumbing a hot water heater with PEX or another pipe type, you won't have to waste time repiping or reconfiguring water supply lines. SharkBite also offers tankless water heater connection kits, featuring a push-to-connect design and a slim-fit valve for recessed or covered boxes.
SharkBite water heater valves and repair products help prevent scalding and protect the water heater system. From thermostatic mixing valves that boost hot water to thermal expansion relief valves that replace expansion tanks, we are dedicated to quality solutions to make hot water heater service and repair jobs easier.
