    • Manufacturer: Cash Acme
    SharkBite U4016 Polybutylene Conversion Coupling 3/4” x 3/4”. SharkBite push-fit fittings are the fastest, easiest way to join copper, CPVC and PEX in any combination – wet or dry. Simply cut the pipe, de-burr and push on the fitting. SharkBite fittings can easily be removed and are reusable.


    You posted these before and I forgot about them plain and simple.

    I'm now curious if the O.P.'s plumber used the sharkbites that are for poly or was a cowboy and used a regular sharkbite.

    We need some pics from the O.P. of the repair.

          What caused the pinholeak?
          Was the copper touching the point of a nail or other piece of metal?
          That is depressing.
          I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified.

              So does that mean they can expect more such leaks at other copper pieces?
              Any remedy?

                I assured them they will have more and suggested a total repipe and connection to city water.

                      The company had a full page ad in the yellow pages and has been in business for years.
