Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dbeeks Easy install
When my wife and I decided to remodel our kithcen my wife wanted a gas oven. I was not looking forward to removing the bulkhead in our finished basement just to run the black pipe. When I found home flex I got excited. The whole install took only two hours. I fished the csst through the bulk head and connected both ends with no leaks. Were is the easy botton?

First and foremost, if you're thinking of buying this and installing the gas line yourself, make sure you watch the videos on the HomeFlex website. They state clearly that you must be qualified to make air-tight connections before doing any installation, and being qualified just means watching the videos and reading the online instructions before you actually try to run a gas line. The videos/instructions online are pretty clear on how to properly make the connections air-tight, including making sure you use a proper cutter to avoid having burrs that can cause leaks. I wouldn't recommend trying to install this prior to visiting the manufacturer's website for instructions (unless you're a pro who installs gas lines all the time, and even then I'd see the manufacturer's specs).
Because the hose is flexible, it's ideal for applications such as installing/moving a gas range in a kitchen remodel. We have access to our crawl space, so it was easy to get the hose exactly where we needed it when we moved our range. Note that some appliances such as dryers are not supposed to be directly connected to this line but require a valve between the tubing and the dryer.

I needed to pull the pipe through tight space under the house and hook up my heater and oven. With Home Flex it went fast, its easy to put all the fittings on, its clean.
You need to be careful not to cut yourself as the edges of stainless steel tube are razor sharp and don't forget to ground the pipe to avoid lighting damage.

The csst line itself seems alright, but the fittings are absolute garbage. No matter what you do, they leak. I'm taking every last piece out and returning to the store. I wouldn't use this junk anywhere. Do yourself a favor and buy a better product the first time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIY worst product I have bought at Home Depot.
First, I can't believe that Home depot actually carries this junk as their CSST products. I bought two lines to convert my 2 wood burning fireplace, 100ft and 25 ft. You can't get a connection leak free with this junk, at first I thought that it was just me that I was doing it wrong, but after 10 different fittings and attempts I finally reach out to a master plumber, he came and said the same thing the gasket is made out of paper, the company called it fiber, but it's cardboard paper. He said in his 20yrs experience he has never seen a gas gasket made out paper. Unfortunately, one of the lines that I ran I had just closed the wall up so I can't bring it back to the store, What a waste of time, money and effort. I hope Home depot review this product and take it off their shelves before they ruin their reputation. Should have gone to Lowes.

I am a master plumber with 15 years experience, this is worst product for the transportation of gas I have come across. I can't believe it was ever approved for sale to anyone. The fact that it uses a fiber washer as the only sealing point is mind boggling. I have used many different brands of CSST for gas and never had a problem, this stuff leaked at every fitting. I ripped it all out and went with a better product.

This information is from Home Flex.
You can test it as high as 25 PSI for short durations.
Most inspectors will test at 15 PSI (or less) for 5 mins.
Working pressure rating is 5 PSI.

Tubing worked well. However I was very disappointed that the tubing came with NO ends. Just bare pipe. This required another trip to HD. If I had been informed of this I would have gotten adapters when I purchased the black pipe and fittings. Nothing was mentioned in the literature.
