    DIY'er here.

    I understand that I can use a Sharkbite connector on PEX-B, but can I use them on PEX-A as well? I am converting from copper to PEX-A in the crawlspace and don't have the courage to sweat the copper to PEX adapter so I'm thinking of using a Sharkbite coupler for that connection. Can I use Sharkbite in this instance?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    Sorry, yes you're right, I'm thinking of the push-on connector.

    Thanks for the support!
