Substandard Toilet Hoses
I'm doing this because our cousin came home to a totally flooded house, and is now living in a very nice downtown condo! Apparently Canada is infested with these fake parts. It's the home scale of my other article on this. I had a quick check of my house, and you can't tell a damn thing! But it all looked like high-grade nylon. I think it would be a criminal plumber who would put in a fitting made from old plastic forks.
New subdivisions could be the worse for this, since if it is bought from Home Depot, I'm pretty sure it's good. So bend down, and check with the new LED flashlight. If there are stampings on the metal connector side, and the plastic doesn't look like a coffee cup, then you are golden! :)
