How To: Install SharkBite Valves Video Transcript:

SharkBite offers a full range of valves for controlling water flow. Our line of valves include ball valves, pressure regulating valves, thermostatic mixing valves, temperature & pressure relief valves, check valves, outlet boxes, and stop valves. SharkBite valves feature push-to-connect ends that make them quick and easy to install.

To make your connection, cut the pipe as cleanly and squarely as possible. Ensure the pipe is free of scratches and debris. If you are handling copper pipe, remove any sharp edges or burrs.

Next, use your SharkBite Depth & Deburr tool to measure and mark the insertion depth on your pipe. You can find the insertion depth chart here:

Push the pipe into the fitting on the valve up to the insertion mark. Now, turn on your water and check the connection.

Using SharkBite is Fast, Efficient, and Reliable.
