A burst flexible hose connection is still the number one claim for insurance companies. It’s impossible to count how many of these issues we have attended. We recommend replacing flexible hose connection every 5 years or installing a direct connection with copper pipe.
We attended a burst flexible hose connection where the owner was home at the time and managed to isolate the water at the mains. This was very lucky, as if he had not been home, the property could have sustained extensive water damage. When we began to repair the damaged pipework, the other hose connection broke easily with the lightest of touch.
We checked every sink and the washing machine for any sign of damage and repaired or replaced each one. We recommend this work is completed by a licensed plumber to ensure the correct method is used and the highest standards met.
