Don't see why it wouldn't but I'd definitely use one with a valve.

Re: Will A Sharkbite Stop A Full Pressure Leak?

yep, great stuff those sharkies... despite the haters.

and yeah 1/2, 3/4 and a 1 inch sharkbyte ballvalves are always in my truck. Sometimes youre limited in tight spaces so i pop on a union and a section of pex hose to bring it to a workable spot.

it's rare to not get water turned off (siezed or broken shut off) but when it happens this works slick.
