Depending on where you live, and what building codes are adopted in your area. Rigid duct may be the only code compliant material (International Residential Code (IRC), International Building Code (IBC), International Fuel Gas Code (IFGC)). See this answer for code verbiage.

If you have to use flexible duct at all, use 2' or less semi-rigid metal duct. The inside wall of the semi-rigid duct is fairly smooth, and will not collect lint as a flexible duct would. The semi-rigid duct is also metal and so will resist burning, unlike flexible duct.

comment GFCI combination switch and outlet to fully switched protected outlet
Check the documentation for the device you're using, the switch leads may not be GFCI protected. If the switched receptacle is required to be GFCI protected, you may not be providing protection by using this device.

Even if this was different enough to be its own question, I still feel like it's off topic. You're looking to start a discussion, not for a definitive answer.

Can you provide any links to credible data that can back up your claims (link to the specs of your system, or the system itself)? I've heard from many sources that distillation is not effective at removing fluoride.
