Corrosion is no match for BrassCraft’s COPPER-FLEX water heater connectors. Constructed of seamless copper tubing, COPPER-FLEX water heater connectors are the professional’s choice for water heater installations. Featuring an integrated dielectric sleeve, the sleeve isolates dissimilar metals within the waterway, where galvanic and electrolytic corrosion have their greatest potential. This separation provides complete protection against galvanic corrosion that can deteriorate the connector and cause leaks. In addition, the integrated dielectric sleeve eliminates the need to install an additional dielectric union, reducing time and installation costs.

I ordered two of these on-line. I returned both items because the quality was so poor as to be unusable. Had these items been in my local store, I doubt they would ever be purchased. I was very disappointed to receive unusable products. This is a quality control issue which needs to be fixed. On a high note, I'd give five stars for the box in which these items arrived.
