Leaking removeable water line, kitchen sink.

My 4 foot removable hot water line is leaking at the crimp. I'm going to change it out but was wondering if I can use a S/S braided water line hose like under your sink at home? My main concern would be what antifreeze would do to it? It would be way easier for me to get a 4' S/S braided hose then the plastic one from the dealer. Just looking for any thoughts!

I see no reason the steel line would not work.
Just wondering what those lines go to?

Would just venture a guess that they go to the kitchen faucets.

Ah, thought it might be like a washing machine or dish washer.

My red and blue pex are more or less straight up from the main lines.

I just guessed the kitchen sink as the dual drains are in the foreground.

Yes you can use the braided SS ones. The inside is still plastic/rubber just the outside has the braiding.

Wow, you guys are fast! Yes it's for the kitchen sink. I'll see if I can even get a S/S hose for it. The other end tightens on the pex pipe as well.
Thanks!!!

Just an update! I wasn't able to find a S/S hose that had two turning ends, like the ends for a toilet. I got a hose made up at the dealers, and it worked great just pricy.
