When you choose this lead-free stainless steel braided supply line, you're choosing a product that starts with an extruded core of PVC tubing. The core is then over-braided with polyester yarn and another layer of PVC material. The final layer consists of stainless steel braid to form a strong, yet flexible supply line. Brass nuts on both ends ensure a solid connection on the inlet and outlet ends.

California residents: see  Proposition 65 information

  • Stainless steel braiding over braided PVC for strength
  • Use to connect your water heater to the water supply
  • Solid brass pipe thread on both ends
  • Maximum working pressure 125 PSI

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by junk I am a professional contractor and I just came from an Arco gas station where I used these to install a water heater 3 years ago...now I get a call on Sunday night ( of course) guess what... hot water side has a pin hole just like one of the other reviewers. Do not use this product! totally not worth the liability- Chico Pete April 26, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Failed after 6 years Very easy to install and did so when the water heater was replaced in 2009 (DIY). After 6 years the connector sprung a leak about 3 inches above the connection and shot a thin stream onto the exhaust pipe of the water heater. Maybe fortunately it caused steam and got my attention. I expected the connector to have as long a life as the water heater but it was not to be. Obviously not the quality I expected for the price. Couldn't in good conscience recommend this to others. BTW, made in China. March 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replaced Water heater Connector. Was easy to attach. Only took a short time to install. Works great and is better than the cheap copper connector that it replaced. February 3, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Keep an eye for small leaks, or pay the price! I put a set of 24" connectors on my gas water heater. No problems per say but I noticed a small seeping leak at the compression sleeve after about a year. I let it go for a couple of days and...bammm!!! the hose sprung a huge spraying leak. Luckily I caught it with minimal damage to my utility room. I will say that if you are going to use these connectors, install them hand tight and then give them a 1/4 turn to seal. I've seen people torque the nut so hard that they cut the gasket and spring a leak within a couple of weeks. Bottom line is, keep an eye on them... February 3, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A good flexible connector I purchased this connector to connect the Watts Instant Hot Water pump to the existing CPVC. I also purchased a Brass to CPVC adapter so the connection is solid! Nice product. January 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean professional look I came to buy replacement parts to hook up my new hot water heater. After finding a store associate, I asked some questions and he gave me some suggestions (I took them) and after I installed them it impressed me as a clean professional look. The flex lines looked better than the copper I replaced. April 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Braided Stainless steel water connector I use these connectors to connect water softeners to Iron filters. Both have 3/4" threaded connections. It works great and I have never had a leak with one of these. November 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great replacement This replacement is so much better than the typical copper flex hose. It wont work harden and crack like the older style do. Unless there is a lot of calcium build up, I don't see any reason that this wont last through numerous tank replacements. (For most of us, that will be a life time.) October 18, 2014
