I have used a sharkbite connection behind the toilet in the moho, and one behind the washing machine in the home without wheels(splicing pex into copper)...our water pressure is at least 65 psi. m
(I swear I thought I already posted this...maybe it will show up on another thread)

Trust me space can be an issue at times, I would not have wanted to use sharkbite conn. in a situation like this: (there is a tool to remove crimp rings as well)

Hi Kevin,
I built a copper manifold in that very corner. What is the black thing in your picture? Is that the water pump?

Thanks for everyone's input. Another question: I'm not sure that the water heater is bad but thought while I have everything apart, it might be good to go ahead and replace the old unit with an up to date version. Any thoughts?

My thoughts are...
If you currently have a 6gal and have room, go for a 10gal
Stick with Suburban
If you have a 10 gal currently and the tank is good, just update the valve with something with addl. Features such as electronic ignition etc. Any reseller can advise you on the options and their respective costs. Good luck.
