First let me say that this is the first negative product review I've ever written. Second let me make it very clear that I love "Shark Bite" products (with the sole exception of this one product). I've used and purchased many Shark Bite products and their products are well made, wonderfully engineered, and easy to use. I recommend them to others. But I must say that this manifold is GARBAGE!!!! It is poorly engineered. The valves are cheep and leak under reasonably pressure. One valve arrived with it's set screw stripped. Since the stores don't carry this valve you can not replace it quickly.
I replaced an entire plumbing system for a quadriplegic's home. I designed the system around this manifold so nurses and family could turn off any plumbing areas easily and quickly with out turning off all the water! I ran hundreds of feet of Pex so every fixture or component would have its own line. This all went down the drain (pun intended) when this stupid manifold failed!!!! Two of the valves leaked around the plastic threads even though I initially installed them with teflon tape! I decided to bi pass the two leaking ports and tried sealing them with marine grade epoxy, marine grade (under water curing) epoxy putty and silicone. Nothing worked. None of these adhesives would bond with the plastic even though I had initially removed the mold-release from the plastic with acetone! (I have a background with boats, diving and marine aquariums). Been there, done that and bought the tee shirt.
Since I had no way of knowing this product was so defective until it was installed, I now had no water to this poor guys house until this product could be exchanged or replaced. They are not sold in the stores (I now know why) so this house had no water for 2 days while I ripped this product out and ran around trying to find the large copper manifolds (which are not sold at the stores either). I had to replace it with multiple 4 port manifolds run in series and then I had to buy numerous ball valves too. I must say that the store (on behalf of the website) refunded my money and treated me very well. The end result was that I bought 1,500 feet of pex pipe to accommodate this item when if I hadn't designed around this manifold I would have only needed about 400 feet! This was a very expensive part and for that price should have been entirely made of metal!!!!! This product cost numerous hours of needless labor and material, trips to the store, etc, and was a major inconvenience for the home owner (who as stated, was a crippled war veteran).
Now, all this being said (can you tell I'm unhappy) when I first looked at this part when it came in the mail it appeared to not be of the same quality of other Shark Bite products. This turned out to be true! Upon closer inspection I could tell it wasn't made by them but some other company. Please Shark Bite, ditch these guys before they give you a bad name!!! In closing, buy Shark Bite products! They are great!!! I continue to do so! But, do not buy any of these plastic manifolds!!!!
leaks like a sieve
