I was wondering the other day how much pressure a PEX fitting might withstand before it pops off, so I had Jordan make me a test rig!  In this video we are testing Sharkbite Push To Connect fittings, Viega fittings, Uponor fittings, and two types of crimped Sharkbite PEX fittings with a rig that goes up to 14,000 psi!  The results sure surprised us.  Enjoy this special Christmas edition of The Build Show!

Agelbert NOTE: I believe my home water lines are PEX A. I just want to say they are GREAT pipes 👍. My pipes froze one January here in Vermont and they did not burst or leak after they were thawed by a service that did the job the next day. That was over 4 years ago. We still have no leaks. My Manufactured Home is now 19 years old. 8) I have crimp fittings but if I ever have to raplace or modify my pipes, I will use Sharkbite fittings because they are HUGE time savers.
