Lead-Free Gas Water Heater Installation Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made Water Heater Replacement Easy ** Make sure your local municipality approves flexible piping for the gas and water lines ** I also learned that I would need to construct a sediment trap on the gas line. While at the store, I priced out the separate components of this kit only to find out that this kit ended up being cheaper for the same brand parts. Once I started the install, the included compression fittings relieved me of having to solder on threaded fittings to my water lines. (As an occasional weekend warrior, my soldering technique isn't great when soldering threads vertically. Any excess solder tends to drip down and fill the threads.) There were no written instructions included, just a simple picture on the back of the package. But it really is not difficult to figure out how everything works. Especially after watching a few online videos of gas water heater replacement. These flexible lines made installation a snap. I ended up buying this kit again when replacing my parents water heater a few months later.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not clear This kit is designed for 3/4" water lines ONLY. This is not clear in the item description or specifications. It's a nice kit, but make sure you have the right size lines. I had to return it and use a different solution. They don't have one for 1/2" lines.The gas line could be a little longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Measure before you buy Unfortunately the water tubes were too long for me to use and I had to go back to buy shorter ones. Since I had already used the gas hookup I could not return the kit. Not the products fault! It, it is all on me. The product is of good quality. My advice: measure what you need before you buy this kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple Installation The parts fit my 3/4 copper plumbing perfectly. The parts had many excellent qualities and the installation was simple.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made, fixed my problem! This was the fix I needed when I woke up New Years day and our hot water tank was leaking water all over the floor. I was bummed because I had to purchase the $30 kit because the Home Depot near my house didn't have a single 18" hose. Worked well, fixed my issue, just have a couple of extra hoses now...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great kit but:::: The hoses were good quality and easy to install. The gas line is just too short. Had to go back and buy a longer one for my installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WATER HEATER INSTALLATION KIT I was told to buy this kit to install our new water heater by the tech that was doing the installation. What an amazing product. In the past it was required to sweat the pipe fittings on with solder. After he removed the old soldered fitting and put the new fittings in place all that is required is to screw the new fittings on like you are attaching a water hose. Simple, clean and NO LEAKS !!
