3/4 in. Push-to-Connect x 3/4 in. FIP x 18 in. Braided Stainless Steel Water Heater Connector with Integrated Ball Valve is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 114.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Push, Twist - done I always take the cheap way out. So when I first saw this I kept looking. But when I realized the cost of a cutoff valve, two elbows 18 inch copper pipe, it was cheaper to just buy this thing. Push, twist and I was done. It was so quick and easy I checked everything about five times. No leaks and it works perfectly. Just put it in your cart and be done with it. You will save money and time over the long run. Would highly recommend it to anybody.
