Default Floodsafe Toilet supply tubes.

Just wondering what everybody's opinion is on these. I tried one about 2 years ago because the customer bought it and the rubber kept shooting up into the toilet tank when i tightened it onto the tank.

The reason im asking is because a customer called looking for toilet supply tubes with metal nuts because a friend of hers had a situation where they left and the nut on her supply tube broke and flooded her house for a week (She cant turn her main water supply off for some reason). I was thinking floodsafe supply tubes may be a better option. Any thoughts?

I 'll bet they are made somewhere in Asia.
I've used Brasscraft for over 25 years and haven't had a flood yet.

They are horrible. Any fluctuations in water pressure shut them off and then you have to go back and pop them off at the stop to reset.

Just bend a chrome Supply. They've been used for 100 years for a reason. Flex lines are fine but the homeowner can go to the depot and put them in themselves. I think they call us for professional quality. Fixing toilets isn't rocket surgery.

We never supplied them, but got a few calls when H.O. could not get water to their fixtures. A good idea that does not work as one would expect.
