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: seeProposition 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 3.7 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Absolute junk. Failed after 4 years This Watts hose was connected between 2 water heaters 4 years ago and last night the hose failed where the braiding meets the hex nut. Water hissing out onto the floor below and dripped through the wall downstairs. September 23, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Product a little pricey Good product makes water connections easy. It is a little pricy. August 21, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Looks are deceiving I'm struggling with one of these right now because it won't form a decent seal with my other hardware. Made in China. I've bought 3 of these and nothing seals, with or without plumber's tape. Also my plumber says the plastic tube inside the flex disintegrates when exposed to hot water. FYI. August 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great purchase to help solve leaking hotwater heater Was very easy to remove old line that was leaking to replace with a new one to stop the leak from the hotwater heatre. Great product for the price. This connects to a coupling so that you DO NOT have to heat to install. January 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by works as expected This was a replacement that had developed a leak, since I was replacing the one that was there was very easy June 10, 2014
