Flexi-Hose Plumbing Perth Hills & Eastern Suburbs

Looking to replace flexi hoses or need someone to inspect your house for any faulty hoses? Damaged or worn flexi hoses have the potential to burst and flood your home and cause massive damage. Avoid an expensive disaster and get our guys to address the issue before it’s too late.

HOW A $10 HOSE

Can Cost You Thousands of Dollars

You’ll find flexi-hoses throughout the average Western Australian home, and they’re very easy to recognize.

Also known as braided hoses, their versatility enables them to be used in new construction and to replace copper pipes in older homes.

Here are a few of their more common uses:

  • Found beneath kitchen, laundry and bathroom sinks.
  • Connecting water from the toilet stop tap to the cistern.
  • Connecting appliances like washing machines and dishwashers to their water sources.

Prevent Issues with Flexi-Hoses in your Home

Flexi-hoses have outer braided layers of stainless steel with a rubber pipe interior. And, because of their flexibility (hence, the name flexi-hose), they can be shaped to meet a range of home plumbing solutions.

Flexi-hose damage can cost you dearly. Up to 2,000 litres of water per hour can flood your home from a burst hose. The following information is key to helping you avoid such a disaster:

 

ROUTINE INSPECTIONS
They should be examined frequently for signs of wear and tear by a licensed and experienced plumber.

REPLACE EVERY 5 YEARS

Flexi-hoses should be replaced no less frequently than every 5 years.

TURN OFF WHEN NOT IN USE
To prevent damage when going away even for a weekend, turn off the water main. Contact the Water Corporation for more information on 13 13 75.

3. Can I replace a flexi-hose myself?

While it is possible to replace a flexi-hose yourself, it is recommended that you hire a professional plumber to ensure that the replacement is done correctly and safely.

4. Are there any precautions I can take to extend the life of my flexi-hoses?

To extend the life of your flexi-hoses, you can take precautions such as turning off the water supply when you are going to be away from home for an extended period, avoiding using harsh chemicals that can damage the hose, and checking the hoses regularly for signs of wear and tear.

Thank you all from a very happy customer.Duncan Blandford ★★★★★ Always a good experience dealing with the Kalamunda plumbing teams. Whoever comes out, they are always professional, friendly, and good at their job. Great companySusan Edwards ★★★★★ Excellent service. Diligent arrival times from Cameron and replacement free of charge.Thank you.Linda Wade ★★★★★ Can thoroughly recommend Kalamunda Plumbing.Called Tuesday and Cam was out Wednesday to check solar hot water system. Provided a quote for replacement straight away. New hot water system installed Thursday.Fast and quick service. No fuss no stress.Jeremy Holton ★★★★★ The truck was held up due to other jobs which had turned out to be more complicated, so it was late afternoon before they arrived and I was worried they might not finish the job.Luckily unblocking a jam in our septic system turned out not to be difficult and the guys were very competent and cleared it in about 20 minutes.I paid $240 by credit card on the spot and received a receipt by email with some recommendations for companies to pump the system out.The company was very efficient and did a good job. For the amount of time it took it was a high charge but I guess reasonable for an emergency call-out and being able to use the toilet is a fairly essential aspect of life.Kevin Bishop ★★★★★ I was in Hollywood hospital when Anthony of Kalamunda Plumbing came. But my wife was at home and she told me that Anthony was very professional and reassuring. When we detected we had a hot water leak problem on Easter Monday evening, we had two sleepness nights awaiting the arrival of the plumber. We feared the worst, dismantling of a bathroom perhaps or breaking through a wall!! But when Anthony arrived and after my wife had described what she had heard in terms of water leaking, he was very reassuring to her and guessed correctly the reason for the leak and with the aid of detection equipment, he located the source of the problem. He repaired the ruptured pipe and restored brick paving under which the faulty pipe was located.Such a relief and so many thanks Anthony and Kalamunda Plumbing.Well done Kalamunda Plumbing.Response from the ownerHi Kevin, thanks for your feedback! I'm glad to hear the boys are offering their expert advice when needed. I will definitely pass on your kind words to Tim (and Clayton)!
