          RUST = LEAKS
          I bought a pair of these similar products for my new water heater, but with the shark bite fitting on one end and a thread type on the other, about six months ago. I checked my hoses, and both hoses dripping water because of RUSTED connections. I immediately replaced those with better quality steel belted hoses. I definitely do not recommend those steel flexible hoses for anything water. If you have them, replace them asap.

          Sorry you had an unfortunate experience, MP2024. We're concerned that you might not have a HOME-FLEX product, however. We do not make anything with a Shark Bite type fitting. ValenciaPipe
            Home-Flex 3/4 in Water Heater Connecting Hose
            This type of water heater connecting hoses are way cheaper than the copper type and much easier to bend. They are not stock in stores but need to be ordered online. If you have time, this is a good and wise purchase.

            More flexible thus easier to install than braided supply lines. Swivel nuts are taller and more robust than most braided supply lines. Very good value overall.
