Questions & Answers

Hot & Cold side use?

Can this be used on the hot water side? I have a hydronic heating system and have lots of partially-kinked flexline I'd like to replace with these, but all of that is on the hot water side, not the cold-water feed side.
Asked by: SawSleuth
We installed this on the hot water side (output) of our water heater. It's stainless steel so there shouldn't be any problems.

3/4 in. FIP x 3/4 in. FIP x 12 in. Flexible Stainless Steel Braided Water Heater Connector is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 5.

The newly installed inflexible copper connector was already corroding, so we're guessing the connection was imperfect and there was a minuscule amount of water leaking. Replacing it with the same stiff connector would possibly end up needing to be replaced again. This 12" connector is not carried in stores, which is why we didn't use it in the first place. The longer connectors in stock have to be bent too much to fit where we need it, so we had to special order the 12" and wait for delivery. It was easier to connect than the copper one. It hasn't been installed very long, but so far no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made, bad discription I only my gave it stars because it was the wrong product for the description. It is only 1/2 inch pipe with 3/4 inch ends. I needed 3/4 pipe with 3/4 ends.4

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SS Braided Water Heater Connector I thought that all 12" hoses were the same length? The one I replaced was 12" on the hose and about 1/4" on each connector. Total length 12.5 inches. This one is 12" total including the connectors. As a result of a direct replacement, I was 1/2" short. These hoses are being used on my water softner, and as a result, had to place a piece of 3/4 plywood under the softner to get it where they would fit as before.
