Hope someone can set me straight on this one.
I've recently bought a condo apartment. The fixtures were crap so I
replaced them all. Rather than try to screw around with fitting a pipe
to the faucets I just picked up some of those flex connector hoses from
a box store.
I talked to the guy there, who seemed knowledgeable about it, and he
said that that was how everyone was making their connections these days.
Meanwhile I've just spent a lot of money installing laminate flooring
throughout the place as well. Water and laminate flooring do not mix.
Now I'm wondering just how secure these flexible connections are. They
must be just some type of rubber inside and they have a silver coloured
braided material on the outside. I have no idea on how they are rated
etc. and the water pressure in the building is very high. I'm used to
65psi( I think ) and this is higher than that.
So... what do you think. Should I go back and take the time to do the
hookups the right way. I'm not a plumber and it would be quite a bit of
work for me, but if it means that I will sleep better at night then I'll
