I am wondering whether there are any reasons to NOT use Sharkbite
push-fit plumbing fittings other than their relatively high cost?

I was wondering the same thing since the water-powered sump pump I
just received came with one pre-installed.

One wonders how a sump pump is water-powered...

one example :


39.99 Canadian at the home hardware store 2Km down the road from me.

Sounds great

"1 gallon of water from a garden hose, pumps out 6 gallons of water"

Is that possible?

"Basepump uses 1 Gallon of City Water to remove 2 Gallons of Sump Water
at an average of 90 lbs. PSI and 10 Feet Lift" Basepump has been
around for 20 or more years and I think there were endorsements of it
here, and it only claims 2 gallons, but that's with a 10 foot lift. Only
the bottom of the swimming pool requires that Maybe???? when the pool
is full and it only requires a 6" lift it could do 6 gallons on one

If it works at all since it has no price, no dimensions and no rating!

Here are better ads with price, a bit of dimensions, and this one has 3
reviews. About 35 dollars.

One guy complained that it floated to the top, and turned over, so put a
weight on it!

Another ad with fewer details says "You're shopping in 21216
For more accurate pricing and availability, please provide your zip
code" That's NYC. Why does it think I'm in NYC, and why zone 16, which
I've never heard of?

Without any hoses, $21

I think, that you are mistaken. I can defend the position. Write to me in PM, we will talk.
