          No, I do not recommend this product.
          i ordered this post top to see how it would look and fit the Veranda 42 inch cedar post sleeves i already had and plan to use in the near future. sadly it won't work with the post sleeves i have, it is to big to fit into the sleeve opening so i will have to use a different type cap that fits over the sleeve not in it. this cap is smaller in size than most caps and has a shiny high gloss finish that didn't match the matte finish on my post sleeves but it would have looked ok to use it if it had fit. this is probably a good product if you have the right size post sleeves and you want a different style cap but it didn't work for me.
          Pros: Stylish
          Cons: didn't fit post sleeve

          SharkBite ProLock fittings are a versatile and innovative full-flow plumbing system utilizing push lock fitting technology and engineered specifically for use with SharkBite PE-RT and PEX pipe. The SharkBite 1/2 in. Push-to-Connect End Stop intuitive design makes for one of the simplest and most dependable fittings on the market.  No tools are required to make a connection.  They use a collet with stainless steel teeth that grips the pipe when fully inserted, and an EPDM O-Ring to provide a permanent, leak-proof seal. The Twist-to-lock technology ensures maximum security.  When twisted into place with indicator arrows aligned, the locking cap locks the pipe in place and creates an audible click. Removing a SharkBite fitting is just as easy with no tools needed; simply twist the cap turn counterclockwise to unlock then depress collet against the fitting to remove the pipe. ProLock fittings are suitable for hot and cold potable water and hydronic heating applications. They have been specifically designed for the Professional Plumber. Code approved for behind-the-wall installations. 25-year SharkBite System warranty when used with SharkBite PE-RT & PEX pipe.

          Answer: 
          it was designed to be tiled over, the backer board and tile cover the mounting holes to make it water proof and give it a nice finished look. for these reasons i would not recommend installing it without tile.
