Default Anyone else use hard closet risers?

Am I that old fashioned? I still use hard risers for my water closets.
Actual picture of my house. And yes it's keyless stop because all I had.

That electrical outlet beside the toilet would tend to remind you to aim well in the night. Mom taught us boys buy putting the toy box beside it.

I mostly use hard supplies, last forever and dont break...why didnt you chrome the copper coming out of the wall before you put the valve on so it all matches? or cut it shorter so the valve nut bottoms out on the escutcheon?

Nope all flex speedways, no one in 30 years has installed chrome supplies.

Better watch what you buy, I haven't seen one yet that's approved. I refused to install one 3 weeks ago. They complained they bought it at a plumbing boutique and they even called them asking to prove to me it was stamped. Obviously they were clueless.

We use hard supplies a lot. You can't be too old fashioned, you don't even know how to solder. Just between yesterday and today I used like 7 hard supplies.

Imho I think it just looks better?
I hard pipe lavs that need tempering valves as well. I know, ss flex is faster. But man looks like crap on tempering valves under the lavs.

Hell yeah it looks better. We bend a lot of chrome. It was hard for me to learn it but I was taught a couple of tricks and that was it.
