Flexible hose


I'm installing a new toe kick heater under cabinet. What hose can I use that is flexable n can hold the hot temperature from the water. I've seen that shark bite has n hot water hose that just slips on. Would that be good to use.

I would refer to your installation manual for proper hosing. Usually they come with their own flexible hosing all ready to go unless you want a specific type of hosing. What brand did you get? Is it a Myson?

I am not sure if sharkbite would work. It's possible. Have to match it up and see.

This is the one they make for the k84: k84 hose

Flexible hose


In commercial hydronic systems it is common to use threaded stainless steel woven wire flex connects at equipment connections. It would be similar to an appliance connector. What size of a hose do you need?

It should be fine. Check the tag on the hose to make sure you are within the recommended temperature and pressure rating.
