Shark Bite fittings are a type of connection that simply gets pushed over the pipe and it’s done. You don’t need any special tools or equipment to make the installation. Many remodeling contractors like these fittings to make easy repairs without having to call out the plumber.
Most professional plumbing contractors will only use a shark bite fitting as a last resort. We have only used a handful of these fittings over the last 5 years. To me, it’s just not worth the liability if a leak were to develop around the o-ring.
