Flexible Hose Connectors
Flexible connector hoses are now the number one cause of flooding in Australian homes. They are usually around toilets, sinks and tubs. It is important to check them regularly for fray’s, corrosion or any other damage to ensure they are still working as they should and to prevent them from splitting and causing severe damage to your home.
If you have purchased or are thinking of purchasing a flexible connector hose, reconsider installing it yourself. It is always better to have a licensed plumber install them as they will supply the correct length and will ensure it is installed correctly with minimum risk of future breakage and subsequent leaking.
Make sure you are checking your plumbing and appliances regularly. A good reminder is to check your plumbing when you receive your council rates bill.
As an extra precaution, consider turning your water off if you are going on holiday.
