Customer Questions & Answers

Do i need to put teflon tape on the 1" FIP side commections? Or is OK just to tighten down the connections to the bypass valve?

The FIP side of the flexible hose has a rubber gasket. Will that ensure a solid and dry connection?
Asked by: JP
The seal is formed only by the oring. Putting teflon on the threads is useless.

Slightly too short

We needed a hose a little longer than 2 ft to connect our water softener. What is the easiest solution to make it reach?
Asked by: Pcsn0122
you will need to extend your service line.

What is the ;minimum radius bend that can be made?
Asked by: Dick
OK bought the connectors so I can answer my own question. The minimum radius bend is about 3 inches; think of being able to wrap it around a 6 inch diameter cylinder.

3/4 in. Push-to-Connect x 1 in. FIP x 24 in. Braided Stainless Steel Water Softener Connector is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 70.

I was installing a Scala2 water booster pump, and I needed to connect my 3/4 pex to the 1 in connections. I had a brass reducer that I could use with a pex crimp connection, but I have used pex long enough to know that while it is flexible it is not always easy to get it exactly where you want it. I saw these and thought they would be a better option, and without a doubt it was the easiest part of the project!

Purchased two of the hoses to make short work of a water softener replacement project. Original softener was hard-piped in, of course the new softener was not the same orientation to original hard pipe. With these hoses it is short work to simply cut directly into the 3/4 in copper in & out piping, and "done". The 3/4 slip fitting really grabs the copper, they did not leak a drop on either end.

This was the first time I have installed a water softener. This connector saved me a lot of time, not having to convert Pex to some other plumbing options, and money, not having to pay $300 for an installer. Both the flexibility and push to connect features make this connector easy and quick to install your softener.
