So, I installed a new water heater for the house over the weekend and I was sweating having to sweat the copper pipe fittings for the hot and cold water lines, mainly because I really stink at it. But I found these Sharkbite connectors that eliminate the need to sweat copper to copper. They work great.
They work with copper, PVC, and PEX. They hold tight and are easily disconnected with a $1.50 disconnector tool. Anybody else tried these things? They are great!
I don't know if they would be usable for pool stuff or not because I can't really tell if they make 1.5" or 2" ones.
