Jeff Long, director of global marketing for SharkBite, joins co-hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick for this week’s All About Real Estate edition of the Atlanta Real Estate Radio show to discuss the SharkBite difference.

SharkBite, owned by Reliance Worldwide Corporation, is considered the “total plumbing solution.” The distributor provides plumbing and water control systems for domestic, commercial and industrial application.

According to Long, one of the things that make the SharkBite fitting special is the easy push-to-connect installation. Rather than your traditional time/labor intensive pipe joining methods, you just push on the end of a pipe and that is all you have to do to install SharkBite! No soldering, clamping or gluing pipes – you literally just have to push it on.

“It solves a couple of problems by removing lot of guesswork,” said Long. “And it works with any kind of pipe.”

SharkBite products are created with the intention of being maintenance-free, which is why the push-to-connect valves are covered by a 25-year warranty! Should a SharkBite product need replacing, the cost is minimal and should only take a matter of minutes.

For professionals that use SharkBite products in their services, SharkBite offers a Contractor Rewards Program. Contractors earn rewards points from SharkBite purchases, as well as from purchases with other leading manufacturers.
