Re: Auto Shut SS Supply Lines

This is one of the reasons I have not really liked these things from the beginning. They all seem to be made of a rubber like tubing surrounded by a braid.

Most also seem to use a soft washer in the end to compress and make a seal, rather than a ground metal joint.

They have several good points, such as speed of installation, but they just have never outweighed the bad points in my book. It seems you always have to use one that is too long, and as a result, the supply always looks armature to my eye.

I'm with Killer on this. I prefer spaghetti or acorn heads whenever possible. I also recommend changing out washing machine supplies every year.
