Product Overview

HOME-FLEX Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing or CSST is great for installation of gas appliances. CSST easily snakes into attic and basements areas, around corners and bends, and through walls.

  • Cleaner and easier to handle than black steel pipe
  • Bends around corners eliminating need for additional joints and fittings
  • Use coordinating HOME-FLEX CSST fittings

Answer: 
Hi Mpizzo-- Yes, generally speaking it is OK to use our Home-Flex CSST in Michigan, however, it is important for you to know your local codes and requirements. Our CSST is marked with a working pressure rating of 5 PSI. It is most likely that the regulated Natural Gas pressure coming out of your gas meter is in the 1/4 PSI range, so it is OK to use our CSST directly off of your gas meter. Be sure to read Read More

Answer: 
Hi Jack. CSST is not approved for direct burial. When routing underground, you must run it through a water tight non-metallic conduit. Please refer to section 4.3 of our System Design and Installation manual. http://homeflex.com/downloads/HOME-FLEX_Installation_Manual.pdf For additional information, you can contact us here at 661-257-3923 M-F from 8-5PM Pacific Time.

Answer: 
Yes, if the requirements are met. Building codes require that gas piping runs that come in contact with earth or other material
that could corrode the piping be protected from corrosion. Piping installed beneath (underground)
or within the slab of a building must be encased in a nonmetallic water-tight conduit
that is vented. Fittings and couplings are not permitted when HOME-FLEX® is installed

HOME-FLEX® should never be buried directly underground without a conduit. To route
HOME-FLEX® tubing underground, it must be protected within a nonmetallic water-tight
conduit that is at least ½" larger than the outer diameter of the CSST tubing. Fittings and
joints are not permissible in such runs; the run must be one unbroken line of tubing.
For outdoor underground installations, the annular space between the CSST and the nonmetallic
conduit must be sealed to prevent entrance of moisture, dirt, debris, and insets.

Hi Dgm
CSST is not approved for direct burial. When routing CSST under ground, you must run it through a protective non-metallic conduit. I recommend electrical PVC conduit. No fittings are to be used on the CSST within the conduit. In almost all cases, the conduit will have to be sealed around the CSST at both ends and you will have to vent the conduit somewhere in the run. For more specific

Answer: 
Hi Balch, No. When running in the ground or in a slab, CSST must be protected within non-metallic conduit. Please refer to section 4.3 of our Home-Flex System Design and Installation Manual for specific CSST routing instructions that apply to your situation. Our no cost manual is available at most Home Depot stores and online.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not Compliant! I bought, as a certified installer, your Home Flex brand of CSST gas pipe for a new home install. I invested $800+ dollars and 2 days of my time to install everything in the new home. Loudoun County Plumbing and Gas inspector says it isn't compliant with code and is making me tear it all out and put in a different brand of CSST that has the ANSI# listed on the pipe. Now I have to buy all new pipe from another supplier. So now my time, money and work is more than doubled. I have $800+ of Home Depot product that will be trashed for non-compliance. If your going to use this pipe, buy a section and take it directly to the inspector FIRST! Do not install this product first. March 5, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disaster Used this for gas line in my new construction house. Inspector said our county won't accept them because they don't have the rating printed right on the pipe, even though it's in the instruction manual. I had to tear it all out and replace it with similar stuff from Lowes. Home Depot was very good about working with me and I made them aware of this problem. Just check with the county before you use this!!! April 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great quality, easy compared to iron I'm a fan of flex stainless, but mind your p's and q's with this stuff. Remember to bond it (electrically) when you install. If you don't know what this means, don't use it. Seriously. Also, consult standard tables of gas pipe diameter and carrying capacity. This 1/2" line doesn't have a huge capacity to run three different appliances at once. Used properly, this stuff is magic, and can save you hours of install headache. December 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Piped entire home with Alpha-Flex I hard piped from my propane tank down the side of my garage wall then, to my grill with black pipe (required outside) and then, inside the attic with 1/2" Alpha-Flex over to my water heater, and heating units. I also installed a manifold in the attic for any future needs. Doing this by myself, it took only two days to complete and was very easy to work with. July 29, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by csst not compliant with code according to baltimore inspector junk connectors had more leaks to just two appliances on one job then i had in two years (approx. 50 houses) using ward flex junk junk junk March 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great price, easy to work with I ran a line out to my grill using this pipe. It's very easy to work with and bends easily. Attaching the ends was also DIY friendly so no need to hire a plumber to run your gas lines. Just make sure everything is tight and check for leaks. July 9, 2013
