Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Plumber This is junk don't buy
This is one of the worst products to carry gas I've ever seen. I am a Master Plumber of 30 plus years and one of my top mechanics agree, buy any product other then this. A builder bought this junk to save us the leg work for the material for the job.. Between a cheap fiber washer and even cheaper retainer ring this is a disaster waiting to happen. I would have never wasted my time to write a review if I thought this product had any bit of quality.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Geoff TERRIBLE!!
This is a TERRIBLE product. Almost half of my joints leaked. Do yourself a favor. Take the training for tracpipe or wardflex or any other csst pipe other than homeflex. The lead ring seal in the fittings is a horrible design flaw. Not nearly as effective as a flared joint made in other csst pipe. Never again for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AchersAway Much easier than pipe
I'm old school and did a bunch of gas lines last year with black pips. This year I had to make some modifications and I thought to give this a try. I'm like you and was afraid it would be to difficult, need special tools or not even be safe. But I am wishing now I had done my whole house in this! It is easy, you have to be careful, same as pipe, you have to make sure you do it right, same as pipe. But there are less joints to seal so there is less chance of leaks. It is so flexible you can just bend it anywhere. You do have to take your time if you cut it, but compare to running to the hardware and getting pipe threaded every time it is a time saver! I'm looking forward to more fun with this running line out for my gas grill and for a heater in my garage!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brent DO NOT BUY! JUNK!
This stuff is absolutely terrible, and if you read past the 5 star ratings Home Depot pays people to write, you will see why. The leaks are uncontrollable. This product is completely different from other CSST type tubings, so don't let it steer you away from CSST. The sealing methods used in this product are preposterous and they will not hold. So many other people have said the same thing.
The installer/repairer from the gas company (with 25+ years experience) said the same thing, and even he could not get the leaks to stop after recutting and attempting with brand new fittings. I will pull all of this out and demand my money back, and if they refuse, I don't think I will shop at Home Depot anymore. They should not offer this product anymore based on mine and everyone else's experience. It's total junk! Don't buy it!

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?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Salex Flexible and easy to use
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.

Huge Labor and Material $avings over Black Iron Pipe
Each end needs a special threaded termination adapter that costs less than $10. The cut ends are very sharp and with a bit of care and following the directions the flex tubing was a huge labor-saving benefit
Bringing Gas to our fireplace was going to cost $1000 for 2 days of a plumber with helper to handle and I did the job myself, in an afternoon, for a tenth of that price and a bit of DIY labor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rusty Routing issues are a thing of the past.
Routing this flexible piping is the only way to go in certain applications. Feeding it up through the floor and into a kitchen cabinet that is under a gas cook top is one of them. I would have needed at least 3 elbows and a coupling with black pipe. I took plumbing in High School so threading black pipe isn't that hard but who has a pipe threader handy. Using this pipe will cut your installation time in half.
