Agreed. I think they're great for a temporary fix. Like we had a project we were working on, ran into hiccups, and it was getting late. Made a quick trip to home depot for a sharkbite so that we could turn the water back on and finish the next day.

Pretty soon we're going to be relocating some plumbing in our basement. It's going to require taking out what's there, some steps in the middle, then putting in new stuff. Sharkbites will be great for that middle time so we can still use the rest of the house's plumbing.

I don't think I'd ever put one in with the intention of leaving it there though.
