Flexi Hoses: The hidden flood danger that could be under your sink

Published: October 15, 2018 Last Updated: February 12, 2018


Lee : We're here today with Lachie to talk about the hidden flood danger in many Australian homes. Lachie is this house at risk?

Lachie : Well Lee there could be a risk under the kitchen sink or there could be a danger in the bathrooms let's go take a look.

Lee : Okay Lachie what have you found?

Lachie : Well Lee I found a potential flood hazard here under the kitchen sink we've got a flexi hose here with seen better days.

Lee : What's a flexi hose?

Lachie : A flexi hose is a really common fitting found in most households they are really prone to bursting.

Lee : Okay so what are the risks?

Lachie : Well there are many reasons for the burst can occur:

  • First is incorrect installation flexi hoses are popular among DIYers however installation of flexi hoses requires specialized knowledge that a licensed plumber is best to provide.
  • Another reason is age and maintenance of the hose. Most flexi hoses only have a lifespan of five years and need to be checked annually within that time to make sure that there is no rusting fraying or kinking that could cause a burst.

Lee : Okay Lachie what is the best course of action for people who are concerned?

Lachie : Well the good new Lee is water damage to your home is preventable as long as you have your flexi hoses installed by a licensed plumber checked every six months and replaced every five years.
