have you ever used sharkbite fittings and if so did they suck?

i'm putting in an outdoor shower up at the VT cabin so my kids don't track in shit everywhere before they come in the cabin this summer.

i'm gonna do all pex outdoors instead of copper

Is that those ones that just snap together? They're good

I used them on my hard gas line and I still get the occasional leak.

sharkbites are not intended to be permanent

You can use them permanently. Nothing bad will happen willy

I use pex tubing and sharkbites for all my plumbing. It wont freeze and break and holds up better than copper. The fittings are like 10 bucks a piece but its totally worth it for the convenience and quality. Never had one fck up.

Yeah I'm not too worried about. Especially under a sink where it's not concealed

the welding thread reminded me of this.

i put sharkbite tee's on and ran some pvc outside.. works fine.. good pressure.. no leaks.. i'm sold.. even if i get a full blow water leak it's just at the camp and it's no big deal.. i shut off the pump when i'm gone

i guess you could if you wanted too as long as theyre easily accessible. i wouldnt use them inside a wall

Are you taking about pull apart shark bite fittings or the pex stuff they make? It's way cheaper to just buy pinchers, 60 rings or whatever in bulk at a supply house, and like twenty packs of elbows, cuplinks, ts, and then like shark bite into the supply line. And just sweat by pex on a divertr or some shit. Getting all the push on and leaving the copper whole is ok I guess if you're not gonna go all the way thru to the fixtures or not use pex and stay copper to avoid soldering?

Ah ok read the shower thing. It's straight to the head I'm guessing no spout? I don't think that'd be a lotta piping needed or turns, so like you're just gonna get a few shark bite 90s, maybe a 3/4 to half reducer? And is it just a one temp shower? Like cold line only?
