Flexi Hose? What is it and where are they located in the home? If you haven’t heard of Flexi Hose, you’re not alone! These flexible hoses only started to appear in homes around 15 years ago, to replace the copper piping.
Most people are unaware, however, that these Flexi Hoses have a limited life span, and usually last around 5 – 10 years. Flexi Hoses are used as a connection from the water main of the wall outlet to sinks, taps, basins and the toilet tap of the cistern. They are covered in an outer layer of braided stainless steel with a rubber pipe inside. Unlike the copper pipes which used to last much longer, these hoses tend to remain unseen, forgotten, but unfortunately, they can leak or burst any time from five years after installation!
