Great time saver
I used two of these to connect my new Rheem softener to the existing threaded plumbing connections. Made it easy to align and install and also allows some flexibility to take stress off the plastic softener connections. I also used a different size to connect my water heater several years ago. I like the fact that solid stainless steel will not corrode like the old copper flex pipes. May people use the braided stainless hoses instead of these, but under the braid, the pvc hose will eventually crack from age when the plasticizers wash away. Appliance manufacturers recommend replacing those braided hoses every five years, so why even use them, when corrugated stainless, soft copper tubing, or PEX is long-lasting? I purchased these online and when I received them, the 3/4" end rubber washer was missing on both, which I had to replace myself.
