These are used a lot now in radiant heat systems. Although Pex tubing and their fittings are also used a lot.
I have found I am moving away from copper with exception of doing boilers. But These are great products and have not had any issues with failure as of yet.
Thanks for your reply. It's reassuring to know your experience with them has been a good one. SharkBites definitely save a lot of time and that's the primary reason I use them.
Thanks for your post. I appreciate everyone's feedback because it helps DIYers determine what to do when they encounter minor plumbing problems. I've been using the SharkBite shut-off valves quite a bit with good results.
Thanks for your response, sounds like you're having good experiences with them. Makes me feel confident the product will work as promised.
Thanks for your feedback, sounds like you've been using them for awhile without any issues. I like how you added the "yet". Hopefully we'll never get to that point but time determines these things.
Thanks for your reply.
to fix a leaky pipe.... great invention...a little expensive but saves a lot of time.
Thanks for your comment. I really do like these for small plumbing repairs.
Shark Bite. And what do you think about Pex?
I actually don't have a ton of experience with PEX but what little I do have I like a lot. Here in Pittsburgh we have so much old copper to deal with and I think PEX is a great alternative. Especially when having to run new plumbing for hot and cold water lines. What are your thoughts on PEX.
