If you're in the middle of any kind of a plumbing project - whether it's a leaky pipe under the sink or a full plumbing repair job - SharkBite push-to-connect plumbing fittings are designed to install easier and perform better. From residential to commercial applications with DIYers and professionals, SharkBite connectors are the ones to trust when it comes to connecting copper, PEX, and CPVC plumbing components.
Why Should I Use SharkBite Fittings?
SharkBite is the pioneer in push-to-connect plumbing fittings. Push-to-connect fittings are perfect for homeowners making small repairs. These fittings are instant push-fit and are easier to install because they require no soldering, clamps, or glue.
SharkBite fittings also work with most major plumbing materials, including copper, CPVC, and PEX. These are all common plumbing components found in homes, and SharkBite fittings are designed to integrate seamlessly with all of them.
How to Install SharkBite Fittings
Installing a push-to-connect SharkBite fitting is easy. Here's how:
- Cut the pipe or tube you're working with evenly so that its ends are square. Make sure you deburr the ends of the pipe so that there are no rough edges.
- If you're using copper, mark the correct depth for the fitting. SharkBite's deburring tool can help you mark the proper depth on copper pipe after you've smoothed out the cut edges. SharkBite PVC tubing has markings to help you know when the tube is inserted all the way.
- Then, simply push the tube into the SharkBite fitting until you reach the depth mark. That's it!
