You have no problem installing a pump system that has the potential of poisoning a municipal water supply, yet you balk at using a sharkbite fitting?me and the original poster here installed a Zoller water powered back up sump pump last week ,i think its one of their newest models , its all pre assembled really sweet , easy to install, and the weird thing is that it comes with a brass male port for the water supply connection(which i liked much better than the old plastic female port) and a female sharkbite adapter, which we threw away and used a copper female adapter instead. I agree with j , shark bites are stupid.. your never gonna catch the dream team installing one!
Not even close Ron. Shark bites are "push on" fittings, pro press is what it says, they are pressed on with many many pounds of pressure, Huge difference, not even close.:no:Shark Bites seal the same way as pro press via an o-ring, so do you think the same way towards pro press?
I talked to the inspector about those pumps, he said we could use them as long as the proper backflow device was installed along with it otherwise he would fail it. I think I'll stick with my regular sump pumps anyway.:thumbsup:You have no problem installing a pump system that has the potential of poisoning a municipal water supply, yet you balk at using a sharkbite fitting?
I fail to see the logic involved in this thought process.
Ok you got me there but that's like saying me and the cat are the same cause we both have eyeballs!:thumbup: meowThey still seal with an o-ring.
That's when I used one, under a trailer but you can add a 3 in front of that 5 and then say below zero.When its 5 degrees under the house and you're cutting out broken pipe, you use sharkbites.
