They got good deals on tools on occasion,,,, I go there and get some dirt cheap large battery type flashlights for 475 each all the time...they work great and the battery alone cost 5 bucks anyway so I got probably 6-9 of them in the back of the truckWho buys plumbing products from HD? Only when I'm in a bind and I need a coupling or a cap or something.
master mark said:i can solder with my eyes closed... Started soldering back on a work bench making wing ell risers back in 1962.. Its no big deal but i prefer not to waste the time if i dont have to..... Its more a matter of your labor time and materials spent... And with less fittings you have a less a chance of leaks on the joints.... And they can really speed up a job... And they eliminate the need for dialectric unions too...... We have been using the stainless steel ones exclusively since about 2012 with no ill affects yet. Used the brass craft black ones before that and had some small issues with them flex connectors also keep stress off the pipes on both the water lines and on the gas connectors...they are mandatory in some parts of the usa where foundations can rise or fall ..... . The flex connectors from hd are pretty good for 10 bucks each and the brass craft ss ones are real good too... You should really try the 24 inch ss brass craft ones.. Or the 18 inch ones.. All you got to do is solder on a 3/4 male adaptor above the heater somewhere and bend the ss flex into shape and they look pretty good.. I think you will find them to your likeing kc......:yes::yes:..
