Concerned about the rubber disintegrating

I've read some reviews elsewhere that the internal rubber hose will disintegrate especially on the hot water side. It may take only 6 mos to a year depending on your water conditions. Has this been corrected?
Asked by: crawdad
Contact manufacturer. IIi've used several and not seen problem over 5 years.

1/2 in. Push-to-Connect x 3/4 in. FIP x 12 in. Braided Stainless Steel Water Heater Connector is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 68.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works, then you get black rubber pieces in tub. Easy to install, worked for a couple years. Then gf tried to take a bath and a bunch of black rubber stuff came out of the faucet, then all the other faucets with the hot water side. Traced it back to the shark bite connection from hot water heater. Replaced with 2 corrugated steel lines, but I replaced the black rubber washer with 2 red ones (supposedly for high water temps, as the Home Depot Employee stated). First time over tightened and blew out the 2 washers, replaced and didn't tighten down as much and seems to be leak free.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from deteriorating water heater supply line I used a shark bite supply line when I replaced my water heater. About 3 and 1/2 years later we had black specs filling our tub. Replaced the line with another one and now about 3 and 1/2 years later we have black specks in our tub again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

In order to minimize hot water tank changeover time in my rentals, utilization of the flexible shark bite tank hose to copper pipe has been my standard. Easy to install and provides for a professional looking installation.
