        This hose kit is a must have for any kickspace heater in tight quarts. Since the majority of these heater are installed under cabinets, or in stair risers, this kit will make intallation and service much easier.

        The very heavy duty hose will give you the ability to make your connections, and then slide the heater into place. Unless you have easy access to the rear of the heater, I would not recommend skipping this kit when installing a kickspace unit!

        This kit was not easy to use. In fact it was very hard to get the hose into the supplied fittings. Very, very hard. Even after stretching, and reaming the hose with soapy water. Next-time I'll just use PEX pipe and fittings. This "KIT" took up too much time and "Energy" to put together.
        The word "easy" should be taken out of the products name.

                    I choose to use the hose kit over solid connections to dampen out any transferred noise from the heater unit. The heater noise on low is undetectable and slight with the fan on high. Very satisfied with product.

                                                  Install was done by HVAC pro but easy to do.
                                                  Be sure to get a diverter tee since those are not so easy to find in your local hardware or big box store.

                                                  I bought this product to re-connect my existing kickspace heater after rebuilding my kitchen cabinets. It came with everything I needed to hook into my existing piping. The hose was plenty long enough as I had to cut a couple feet off it. The hose is nice and heavy duty, and I'm very comfortable having it under my cabinets.

                                                    Q:

                                                    (1) will this work for a one pipe system as shown in owner's manual for twin-flo III heater? (2) air vents show in owner's manual. How do you vent with this kit? (3) the air vents that I purchased are 1/2" too high. Is there a special air vent for these?

                                                      A:

                                                      John,
                                                      1) If by "one pipe system", you are saying a single line feeding all of
                                                      the heating devices within your home, I would not recommend it. The
                                                      Twin flow heater uses 1/2" tubing, most heating loops are 3/4", by using
                                                      the twin flow _in series_ with the other devices will cause a
                                                      restriction within the system and loss of heating capacity. Better to
                                                      create a loop (or secondary loop) for the Twin Flow heater that is in
                                                      parallel with the main loop and use mono-tee's to draw the warm water
                                                      through the Twin Flow loop.
                                                      2) If by "venting" you mean "bleeding the line". Then, basically any
                                                      where within the loop will accomplish this task, try to locate the
                                                      bleeder valve as high within the loop as possible.
                                                      3) Due to close constraints that the Twin Flow heater is designed to
                                                      work in, bleeding at the unit is not very practical because access is so
                                                      limited. The hose kit will allow the unit to be moved "out from under"
                                                      If you feel you must bleed the loop at the unit, then you will need to
                                                      find a 90 degree elbow with a bleeder valve built into it. They are not
                                                      easy to find.

                                                      Yes it can.Depending how confident you are with figuring out plumbing supplies you can go to the local hardware store and get all the parts you need. Or you can spend the outrageously marked up price for the easy connect kit.I would also advise putting it on it's own loop using monoflow tees. this way there isn't too much of a pressure drop caused by the heater.

                                                      I had an installed kick space heater that was copper connected and it failed. Since the water input and output of this heater did not match the new one, the flexible hose kit let me simply install the new heater without major plumbing issues. This setup also allows the heater to be positioned exactly where you want it and yes, there is some mobility in the new installed unit that was not there in the old one.

                                                      It was easier to install with the hoses, though. I also think that it isolates a little of the vibration and makes it easier to do the recommended periodic cleaning of the fan.

You might be better off buying a car rad house and the reducer connections from a hardware store.

                                                      No, you can also use copper or PEX. This hose is designed for tight and hard-to-reach areas.
