SharkBite Max fittings are the newly designed version of the SharkBite (1st Generation) push-to-connect fittings you know and love. These products meet the same level of quality, reliability and code requirements as SharkBite 1st generation fittings.

How is SharkBite Max used and how is it similar to 1st Generation?

SharkBite Max couplings come in sizes ranging between 1/2 – 1 inch and are installed using the same steps as the original fittings: cut, deburr, push and done. After inserting the pipe, stainless steel teeth bite down and grip the pipe tightly while a specially formulated O-ring compresses around the pipe to create a watertight seal.  

Like 1st generation SharkBite couplings, SharkBite Max fittings are the fastest way to connect PEX, copper, CPVC, PE-RT or HDPE pipe compared to other conventional plumbing methods. They also: 

  • Require no special tools    
  • Can be installed on wet lines and be pressure tested immediately
  • Can be installed underground (wrapping required) and behind the wall without access panels   
  • Can be rotated after installation for quick adjustments
  • Are rated to 200 degrees F    
  • Are code-approved, third-party listed   

SharkBite stands behind its products with a 25-year warranty for all Max fittings when properly installed with PEX, copper, CPVC and PE-RT pipe.
