    Re: Sharkbite fitting and ASSE #

    I've only used a few Sharkbites and have had no problems. One should note from the "warranty" however that they are warrantied against defects in materials. They are not warrantied against the failure of the integrity of the joint. (Unless I missed it.) So, if one blows off, that's not covered. If it leaks when you put some sideways pressure on it, that's not covered. If there's a hole in the casting, that's covered.

      come on guys, We are plubers here. If you want to use shark bites for temporary repairs or testing, fine. But to use it for a perminant repair and worse yet to charge for doing so is just lazy hack plumbing.

        Thought it was spelled "plumer"...?

                      Interesting point, awhile ago on another sharbite thread I mentioned my general liability insurance appreciates the fact that I do not use these.

                          Cash Acme SharkBite fittings were tested by IAPMO to the ASSE 1061-2006 and IGC 188-04C. You can find all the information on warranties and certifications on Cash Acme's website. www.cashacme.com you can also see what I was talking about on this direct link http://www.cashacme.com/_images/pdf_...B_ASSE1061.pdf

                            I have never used a Sharkbite fitting. That is a good idea for test setups though. To say that they are bad because of the rubber seal? What about Victaulic then? I have not seen problems with them for rubber related breakdowns.

                              So what exactly is tube support liner as it pertains to the use of Sharkbites and PEX pipe...

                              I know I have seen it mentioned here before but I have never been clear as to exactly what material to use or is this a manufactured item.

                                It is an insert which makes sure the PEX is full size and round when it intersects with the o-ring. It comes pre-installed in the fitting and you have to remove it for copper or CPVC.
