Re: Where to find 1/2 inch No Hub Coupling


Thanks everyone

Sharkbites are applicable only for copper, CPVC and pex pipes. Galvanized Compression Couplings seems to be a solution of this problem, but I am not exactly sure whether it can use for unthreaded galvanized pipes in long term or not. Reviews are also very different. Some experts suggest it only for an emergency repair, but some others believe it can be use with no worries. Anyone has experience using these dressing couplings before?

Long term you should plan on replacing all of the galvy.

Thanks for your reply

Is your pipes galvanized iron?

Could you please provide me a link or a picture of the coupling you used at your property?

Thanks again

Sorry, I haven't check your user name. I doubted maybe it is another product that it shared here before.
