Cutting pex tubing

Step 1

When cutting SharkBite PEX Pipe, ensure that the ends are cut square and the surface is smooth. Ensure that both the EvoPEX pipe and fitting are clean and free of dirt and debris in preparation for making a connection.

Push the pipe into the fitting firmly (a twisting action reduces insertion force). Take care to avoid inserting the pipe at an angle.
