Thanks! Are there any special tools I need? I'm assuming I can just cut the stuff with my sawzall, and bend it with my EMT bender?

I was looking at water heater flex hoses, but they seem to have a maximum BTU rating.

They will crack from vibration... Not allowed..

Thanks for letting me know. Saves me 30 bucks plus an explosion.

My dad has a tubing cutter I can use, I'll have to hunt down a flaring tool.

That looks easy enough.
