Q:Do I need apply gas compound at connection?
by|Dec 6, 2022
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Hi, Billy - Pipe compound or yellow Teflon tape should be used only on the IPS threads. Not on the brass-to-brass threads of the fitting. Check out our CSST Design & Installation Manual available at homeflex.com/resources. Thanks.

by|Dec 7, 2022

    A:  You do not need to apply pipe dope or tape to brass connections, however, I have had small leaks with these pieces i the past and a little dope took care of it.

            by|Jan 1, 2022

              A:  Hi, Timmy - As mentioned in our Design & Installation Manual (available on homeflex.com), CSST should NOT be exposed to direct sunlight for a prolonged period of time. We suggest it be protected by a non-metallic conduit (like PVC pipe) that is at least 1/2" larger than the OD of the CSST. Further, there should be no fittings (tube only) inside the conduit.

                  Q:Can csst fittings be re installed after initial installation ? Or will are they one time use once compressed ?

                  Answer This Question

                  A:  Hi, Rich - Yes, HOME-FLEX CSST brass fittings can be re-used after initial installation. You should, however, change out the hard fiber washer. A 1/2" / 3/4" combo repair kit is available at Home Deport for about $6.

                  by|Dec 27, 2021

                    A:  You would need to use a new compression ring

                    by|Sep 28, 2022

                      A:  I had the same question and yes they can be re-used.

                      by|Dec 28, 2021

                        A:  Yes, “but” you will need a new compression washer which are sold separately 

                        by|Dec 26, 2021

                          A:  Check the rubber seal on the ends. so long as there is no damage there should be no problem reinstalling

                            Nothing but Leaks
                            Alpha Flex (now called Home Flex) is a horrible system. The pipe is good, but the connection system was not well thought out. There is only one non-metallic washer that seals against the stainless steel pipe. Out of the six connections I made, I could only get one to seal so no bubbles appeared when performing the leak test. I cut off several connections and tried again. When I disassembled the connections, everything looked smooth, but yet they still leaked. A couple connections were obviously deformed. When tightening the connections, the pipe folds back on itself and is supposed to create a smooth seal against the washer. I can appreciate the ingenuity of the system, but in four words: IT DOES NOT WORK! I could not tighten the connections enough to stop the leaks. I purchased Pro-Flex connectors from Lowe's and they are much better and easier to use. They come with a thick silicone washer to seal to the connector. I made an airtight connection on the first try. You also don't have to tighten the connections as much, just hand tight and then another 0.25-0.50 turn more.

                            Horrible product
                            The gasket on this product is a one time use and doesn’t seat well at all no matter how clean you cut the gas line.

                            Hi, LeeroyJenkins - Sorry to hear you had difficulties with our brass CSST fitting. Make sure you're using our fitting on our pipe. You can't mix manufacturers. Yes, it is important that a clean cut is applied to the ss tubing. If there's a "shard" file it down. Cut back the yellow jacket 2 valleys of the CSST (about 1") and place the flange nut on the CSST pipe. Then insert the retainer ring in the last valley of the CSST. Be sure to squeeze it enough to stay in the valley, but not too tight as to oblong the part which can make the ss out of round. Then screw the 2 main brass pieces together. Continue to tighten until you cannot tighten any more. Along the way, you may feel that you "stripped" the fitting (it'll get easier) but that's simply the ss turning in on itself creating a nice smooth end which embeds on a hard fiber gasket. Generally, you'll see 1 thread or less in between the 2 brass pieces. As for "one time use", the fitting can be taken apart, a new gasket inserted, and reused. If you'd like to speak, please call our Technical Services Department at (661) 257-3923 x 1026 (Dave) or x 1010 (Jon) M-F 8a - 5p. Thanks. ValenciaPipe

                              Do not buy these. They are worthless and will not seal the line. I am doing a major project and needed 12 of these and only 3 of which sealed and the rest ended up in the trash or being returned.
