There are many reasons to use a flexible connector. Some County Codes require flexible connectors. Most customers in areas of seismic activity would benefit from using a flex connector because a flexible connector will bend, allowing for movement while keeping the connection safe from breaking. Another reason is hard pipe installations are more expensive, time consuming and often times difficult to maneuver. Flexing the install translates to saving time and money. Also, keep in mind some appliance manufacturers require that flexible connectors be used when installing their products or else the Warranty is void.
