A hose that’s weak is going to leak. Old, lightweight supply hoses should be replaced with heavy-duty versions before they fail and cause major water damage.
There are two types of plumbing leaks: slow drips that do little harm and major failures that often cause disastrous flooding. If the supply hoses for your washing machine are old and worn, the more severe leak is definitely a possibility.
It’s easy to overlook the supply hoses for your washing machine. But ignoring old, worn hoses can have dire consequences, especially if you don’t turn the water valves off when the washing machine isn’t being used.
Standard, consumer-grade hoses can leak or even burst for a variety of reasons. Corroded fittings, worn gaskets and cracked, weakened rubber are common problems that lead to hose failure. If this happens when the house is empty, the leak could easily dump 650 gallons per hour into your basement or upstairs space.
To eliminate worries about burst washing machine hoses, all you have to do is replace your standard hoses with reinforced FloodChek® hoses from Basement Systems. All the materials and specifications for FloodChek hoses are over-engineered. From the heavy-duty brass fittings to the thick, reinforced rubber hose material, FloodChek hoses exceed their performance requirements by a huge margin. It’s the safe, sure way to set up your washing machine. Basement Systems offers a variety of basement waterproofing solutions to keep your basement dry.
