Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GDiaz Great product and system
First you MUST read the online instructions they cover sizing, assembly, routing, securing and bonding. Plus the manufacturer has videos. Very easy to install. After the local Gas company found 23 leaks in the old black pipe system, I redid everything in Home-Flex except the fist 20 ft from the gas meter which I re-doped and re-assembled the original black pipe. As for leaks absolutely none in the Home-Flex - tested at 10 psi for 1 hr with compressed air. Just passed final inspection from the Gas company, purged lines - no leaks - gas is back on. Let me clear up a couple of incorrect reviews - the black O-ring does not seal the fitting - it is there to keep gunk from getting under the jacket - see instructions for using tape if you lose the o-ring. Also replacement brass retainer ring, o-rings and fitting non-metallic gasket are available at HD both online and at stores that carry Home-Flex. A tip that may help you make a leak free connection the first time - I took a metal file to each cut end, removed any burs or uneven cuts before assembly - if you look at the instructions burs are a common reason for a leaky connection. Finally the 1 inch by 3/4 inch manifold in my photo is only available by special order from HD - you won't find it at the stores or on the web site.

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 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 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.

I would suggest you don´t even think about buying this product. My licensed and certified installer could not get it to seal. I checked other reviews, maybe some of those folks got a better product and were successful. I am among those that are disappointed in the product.

This is the first time I’ve used this in place of steel pipe. It’s clean, easy to handle, snakes easily, flexes around corners well and is easy to see after installation. I used it to install a tankless water heater. Just drilled my holes and snaked it thru, There was no cutting, sizing and fitting nipples, Just put a connector on each end and you’re done, you don’t need to buy additional fittings. If you’ve worked with black pipe before you will be amazed at the time savings as well as keeping your hands cleaner and making it easier to work. A great and quality made product.
