Quick connect fittings behind drywall
 
I am considering putting some quick connect fittings (like Watts or Shark-Bite) behind my drywall. Does anyone know if these connectors are likely to leak?
Thanks

They're no more likely to leak than any other fitting. The SharkBite fittings have ICC approval for use in concealed locations and burial...Not sure about the Watts ones.

What he said ^^^^^ I really like the sharkbites except for the price. Me, I use them for convenience on small projects or if I have a situation where I cant dry out a fitting and get a good solder joint.
