Flexable supply lines for water softner any good?
1 Attachment(s)
Hooking up a new softener today. The new softener lines up a little to the right of the old supply lines. I'm considering just using the flexible stainless steel lines like the one in this picture. Any onions on if these are really the best way to do it? Just wondering if the pro's actually use these things.

Nothing wrong with them.

I'd go with metal personally. In the long term I think that metal is the safer option over plastic - even if it's food grade. Possible a better connection too.

I used corrugated stainless steel lines made by falcon stainless to hook up my softener and I am very satisfied with them.:thumbup:

Flexible plumbing lines
As long as they're installed properly, there's no problem with using flexible lines.

lead pipes are to be avoided

you can use stainless steal pipe or plastic
