My first time ever experience with sharkbite. In finding a leak behind the wall I have removed the toilet stop valve and exposed the plumbing behind the wall. Next I want to temporarily install a sharkbite stop valve so I can turn the water on and find the leak. On youtube it looks like an easy push but when I try it seems like a lot more force is required. It was a ½" copper sweat stub and I have heat wiped then sanded all tinning off. Should it be fairly easy to push on or should just brace the tubing and give it all I've got?
