The new SharkBite Max push-to-connect fittings are re-engineered to deliver the same reliability as its first generation fittings but with new product enhancements that provide more strength and an easier installation, the company says. The original brass body now has a reinforced stainless-steel collar for added strength, allowing the fitting to handle up to double the burst pressure compared to the first-gen fitting. SharkBite Max fittings require half the insertion effort as the original fitting, allowing for seamless installations and quicker emergency repairs in wet lines. The fittings are compatible with PEX, copper, CPVC, PE-RT and HDPE pipe.
