Plumbing is often something that no one really thinks about until something goes wrong. Sometimes it may be that a tap starts dripping or leaking, a toilet is noisy, or your hot water stops working. While inconvenient these issues are unlikely to cause a large amount of damage.
If you have a flexi hose that bursts – the results can be disastrous. They burst sporadically due to deterioration over time. When they burst they can damage not only the flexi itself but kitchen or bathroom cabinetry, flooring and other items depending on the speed at which someone is able to turn off the water to stop the flow. Unfortunately, there is no telling when exactly they will burst, and it often happens when people aren’t home or even worse when they are on holidays. this
