SharkBite Makes It Easy to Install a Toilet

Doing your own light plumbing chores can save you a lot of money, but it can also be frustrating. That’s particularly true when you’re ready to install a toilet. The process itself isn’t difficult, but let’s face it: the average do-it-yourselfer could use every bit of help they could get.

That’s why SharkBite developed its easy-to-use fittings. The SharkBite Click Seal Toilet Connector takes do-it-yourself toilet installations a step further, making the process simple enough for anyone to understand.

Hands down, it’s the easiest way to install a new toilet line. For instance, just slip the Click Seal Toilet Connector over the pipe and the stainless-steel teeth will bite down and grip tight. Meanwhile, a specially formulated O-ring compresses to create a perfect seal.

The Click Seal Toilet Connector is versatile — it works on copper, CPVC or PEX pipes in any combination. Better yet, it works with no soldering, clamps, unions or glue required.

These fittings aren’t just quick to use when you install the toilet. Disassembly is just as fast. For instance, just use the simple disconnect tool, which comes with the product and allows you to easily change and reuse fittings and valves.

The fittings can even be rotated after assembly for easier installation in tight spaces!

The Click Seal technology also means there is no need for tools when you install a toilet line; simply turn the Click Seal nut until it clicks and you have a secure seal.

Plus, the fittings are corrosion-resistant, rated up to 200 psi — a big plus, since these will be exposed to water.

  1. I have some personal experience with the SharkBite fittings shown. The important part not shown in the video short was, most installations do not involve clean copper pipes. Often, pipes have solder drippings all over preventing the installation. Cleaning the old solder is not easy. The water has to be shut off and the old valve cut away or heated to removed taking care not to burn the wall or floor or unsolder the fitting in the wall. SharkBite is wonderful if this problem isn’t encountered. That would have been a good how-to segment.
