Yea....I guess the pipe dope is a bit over kill....maybe about 20 wraps of Teflon tape would be better.

Comments like yours shows why most businesses wonder why people do not use them, or go with someone else after the truth comes out about the owners way of thinking.

The first thing I would do is put your application in the round file.

That the way its in Florida, i been lucky we had over the years good guys and i exaggerated i wouldn't fire someone for using sharkbites at least not the first time, i would explain my reasons why i don't like using them if they did it again i would look for a meeting of the mind by the third time then he's gone.

Are you talking about unemployment? If so you have already been fired. No appeals in non union areas.

Sharkbite Fittings


The justification of why they don't use sharkbite fittings is the same when the industry went away from the following:

Lead Oakum Poured Joints - ABS / PVC
Threaded Galvanized Pipe - Soldered Pipe
Copper Pipe - PEX Tubing
Threaded BI Pipe - Gastite
50/50 Solder - Lead Free
Cast Iron Joints - Fire rated plastic pipe

The industry will leave those resistant to change behind.
