Inside the fitting yes. Inside of the actual hose it is a rubber lining.

How do this connectors work?

Meaning the sharkbite type.
Asked by: Rene
Inside the fitting there is a set of teeth that face towards the inside of the fitting. When you insert the pipe into the fitting it slides into two o-rings and the teeth grab the pipe so that it cannot pull out. There is a special tool used to release the teeth so it can be taken off.

Won't the brass threads on this react dielectrically with the galvanized steel tank to corrode in time?

Looks like you are matching up dissimilar metals here if using this on a hot water tank with steel inlet\outlet. - Won't the brass threads on this react dielectrically with the galvanized steel tank to corrode in time? I doubt if a little Teflon tape in between is enough to stop that process.

I have sharkBite connectors on my hot water heater. They were installed approx. 7 years ago. I now have black specs in the hot water. I have replaced the anode rod suggested as a possible problem. I still have the black specs. I have flushed the tank many times which helps for a few weeks. I have seen comments on the internet suggesting that the inner lining on the braided stainless steel water connectors may be causing the problem. Could this be my problem ?
