What Are The Risks Of Flexi Hoses?

In Sydney homes, flexible water hoses are used for multiple purposes. Typically, they are found around taps, sinks, basins, and toilets. They are made using braided layers of metal around a rubber interior.

Flexi hoses are relatively inexpensive, and as with most things in life, you get what you pay for. Hoses have a limited lifespan, rarely lasting more than ten years. When your flex hose does burst, it can cause up to 1500 litres of water per hour to flood throughout your home.

Imagine the damage this could cause if you aren’t home when the breakage occurs! The water damage caused by burst Flexi hoses is exacerbated by the trend of open plan houses, which flood quickly and easily.

What Are Some Common Tap Issues In Sydney?

Issues with taps in your home can be a significant hassle. A leaking tap or burst Flexi hose can cause your water bill to go through the roof.

  • Noisy taps
    This issue is more likely to occur in copper or iron pipes than in plastic, as metal amplifies the sound. A noisy tap can be caused by a faulty plumbing design, a poorly fitted washer or a washer seat that requires cleaning.
  • Broken Flexi Hose
    All Flexi hoses have a finite lifespan – generally, they burst after ten years of usage, although they can burst earlier than this sometimes. A burst Flexi hose occurs when the braided inner lining breaks, causing the rubber inside to expand.
  • Leaky tap
    Water leaking from your tap is the most common plumbing issue with fixtures. A wide range of topics can cause a leaking faucet. Some of the most common problems are damaged or worn out washers, incorrectly installed washers or corrosion.

Why Is It Necessary to Repair your Taps?

Water wastage from leaking taps or burst Flexi hoses is the main reason to have your taps repaired as soon as an issue appears. Along with wasting water, a leaking faucet can be noisy and keep you and your family up at night. Leaking water over time can lead to the build-up of mould. Stagnant water can also attract bacteria and insects into your home. These problems are avoidable when you contact a reputable plumbing Sydney company like Silver Water Plumbing as soon as you notice an issue.
