Unexpectedly easy.
5 Star Review   By shag3 on Home Depot - Feb 4, 2013   

I was a little sceptical to try something that was supposedly so simple. I bought the part, went home, cut the pipe and installed it in about 15 minutes. Everything was just as promised. Easy, and no leak.

Try this valve first before sweating!
5 Star Review   By Steve on Home Depot - Jan 19, 2013   

Wasted two hours and destroyed the seals trying to solder a valve to shut off a leaking outside sillcock. Then I tried the Sharbite valve. 30 seconds later and the copper pipes were connected. No leaks and no threat of frozen pipes. Saved at least $125 over hiring plumber.

This product was just what I needed. It installed super easy and works great allowing me to shut off the water supply to my outdoor faucet for the winter.

Easy Installation
5 Star Review   By Haydn on Home Depot - Jan 27, 2012   

Product was very easy to install and turn on. I had installed the valve on the input to the hot - water heater. This is in a 30 yr.old Mobile Home System.

Works perfectly
5 Star Review   By Taborton on Home Depot - Jan 17, 2012   

I am no plumber. This worked so well, I stood there expecting it to come off. It held and is still holding. No leaks. Very simple to do.

Fast, Easy, No Leaks
5 Star Review   By KCDeerSlayer on Home Depot - Jan 2, 2012   

Used these under my sink (no room to move). Had them installed in minutes (make sure you clean up the old pipes and mark the depth the pipe has to be into the fitting). I will be using these in the future. They have been installed for 2 months now and everything looks good.

Easy to install but...
3 Star Review   By HomeDepotShopper on Home Depot - Nov 18, 2011   

After installation there was no leak but it was disturbing that the valve is not rigidly mounted and rotates.

This works so well God himself must have made it!
5 Star Review   By HGonz59 on Home Depot - Jul 9, 2011   

I went to my Home Depot after trying to replace a sill-cock on the outside of my house. The sill-cock was soldered on and connected to a shut off valve in the basement. I de-soldered the 1/2" copper pipe from the shut off valve and removed and replaced the sill-cock. When i tried to solder the 1/2" copper pipe to the shut off valve it leaked. I tried to re-solder it 3 times and had the same result. I then attempted to de-solder and remove the shut off valve and was unable to do that. I applied the propane torch for 15 minutes but was unable to remove the valve. I then went to my local Home Depot to buy a torch that would be hot enough to get the job done. After looking at the prices of the torches I went to the tool rental area and asked if I could rent a torch and was told no. After telling the man in the tool rental area what I was trying to do he asked me "Have you ever heard of Sharkbite?" well he showed me the product and I bought a shut off valve, went home and cut off the old shut off valve with a hacksaw, cleaned up the ends of the copper pipe with emery cloth, enlarged the hole so that the sill-cock would fit flush against the wall giving me the extra length I needed, and connected the Sharkbite shut off valve in about 10 seconds. The person who invented this system of plumbing deserves the Friggin Nobel Prize.

Shark Bite Shut off Valve
5 Star Review   By crandreww on Home Depot - Jan 7, 2011   

No need to sweat, no need for coupling, needed to put a shut off valve in, decided to put it where the pex transitions to copper to go into the water heater, just pushed the copper in snug, then pushed the pex in snug, and no leaks, no problems whatsoever. Make sure the copper end has no burrs, and is clean. The only problem was that I thought it was waaayyy too easy. I kept checking for leaks, knowing that this plumbing job was too easy to function..or so I thought. I have become a HUGE fan of shark bite fittings. They have gained my respect! I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a plumbing fix!

Sharkbites - Quick and easy
5 Star Review   By shearek on Home Depot - Nov 28, 2010   

After two attempts to sweat on a shut off valve in very limited space, put in the sharkbite ball valve in 20 seconds and instantly provided a drip free solution with no mess. Made sure the copper pipe was clean and sanded at 1" minimum.

Sharkbite shutoff valve
5 Star Review   By Bob133 on Home Depot - Aug 16, 2010   

I installed one on the copper water main in my old house. The existing gate valve did not shut off the flow of water coming in, so a steady, smallish stream of water was always there. Even so -- after I cut the copper pipe (on the house side of the old shutuff valve) I was able to install the Sharkbite valve without a problem. Now when I shut off this new valve it works perfectly.

Well worth the money...
5 Star Review   By Braelin on Home Depot - Jul 14, 2010   

Found out that I'm not a plumber by a long shot. Unfortunately, I ended up taking on a plumbing project with a torch that wouldn't get hot enough for the solder to flow. This came to a realization after 10:00 PM, after my local Home Depot had already closed. Due to the state of my butchered shower, I had to leave the water off for the night until the store opened, leaving me to smell of flux as I tried to get some sleep. In the morning, I grabbed two of the Sharkbite 1/2 inch ball valves and installed them on the PEX below the copper pipes that I was working on. Installation was simple, no leaks, no mess, water back up and running. I would definitely recommend these to anyone new to the world of plumbing or even an experienced DIYer working in close quarters...
