The plumbing solution for any installation.

Contractors, specifiers, architects and installers alike can all experience the benefits SharkBite offers when specifying and using the SharkBite range of highly innovative and technologically advanced fittings, designed to meet the demands of both modern day residential and commercial hot and cold water systems.

How SharkBite works

The sharp stainless steel teeth of the internal grab ring bite into the pipe once pushed into the fitting, gripping it tightly and never letting go. The specially formulated material of the o-ring compresses to create a perfect watertight seal. A SharkBite demount tool can be used to remove a fitting and it is immediately reusable, making SharkBite the true modern plumbing solution.

With no solder, flux or heat required, SharkBite is ideal for use in listed buildings or sites where flamed jointing is not permitted. Wet joints are as easy to make as dry – meaning repairs can be made in seconds!
