I bought my Shark Bites at my local Ace Hardware. They carry Pex also. Their web site is, acehardware.com.

Neil-

Do you have a part number? I just went to their site and got "0" in their search for PEX or Sharkbite.

In the Home Depot ad today for the zip code 32404 (just in case it differs) they had several prices and displays for the shark bite fittings...

Chuck, Cash Acme has a Price list on the site you originally linked.

http://www.cashacme.com/2006_Pricelist.pdf

It would be nice if these could be used for the propane supply lines also. I did not see any indication that they could be.

I just checked with my local Ace and they were surprised when they could not locate Shark Bite on acehardware.com. Their only possible explanation is that Ace just began carrying it. I am not necessarilly promoting Ace it is in my case very convenient as the store is 'just down the lane' from me. I knew I would need to make several trips with exchanges a new and different connections.

I was going to attach a picture of my water heater connections but the 'Manage Attachments' is not working. I will post the picture later.

The picture shows the view of the new Atwood WH as it looks from the top. I 'married' the Pex to the copper supply with Shark Bite connections. Then threaded Shark Bite elbows are wrenched to those. This was done before sliding the new WH in place. I installed a winterizing by-pass to the WH also before sliding the it in place with 2 more SB elbows on the by-pass. Now I slide the WH in place, anchor it, and connect the Pex between the SB elbows. Work space is very limited. No room for a wrench or crimping tool. I had to hold my arms above me to work my upper body thru the bathroom closet at a twist then right myself with the closet door frame squeezing my ribs. And I did this with arthritis and 2 titanium hips. Before inserting myself I placed the 2 pre-cut Pex tubes and a small pruning scissors (for minor trimming) on top of the WH as I plan to make squishing into that closet as few times as possible. Also included with the tools on the WH is the Shark Bite removal tool should I need to make adjustments. Shark Bite is too pricey for me to completely renovate my plumbing. However, with tight installations as this it is Priceless!
