      ** Make sure your local municipality approves flexible piping for the gas and water lines ** I also learned that I would need to construct a sediment trap on the gas line. While at the store, I priced out the separate components of this kit only to find out that this kit ended up being cheaper for the same brand parts. Once I started the install, the included compression fittings relieved me of having to solder on threaded fittings to my water lines. (As an occasional weekend warrior, my soldering technique isn't great when soldering threads vertically. Any excess solder tends to drip down and fill the threads.) There were no written instructions included, just a simple picture on the back of the package. But it really is not difficult to figure out how everything works. Especially after watching a few online videos of gas water heater replacement. These flexible lines made installation a snap. I ended up buying this kit again when replacing my parents water heater a few months later.
