Burst Pipe in Hillarys Costs Thousands

In your Hillarys based home, have you ever looked under the kitchen sink or bathroom basin?

This plumbing pipe in Hillarys is called a braided flexi hose. It allows the hot and cold water to flow to your taps. They’re designed for water flow and are used across the entire suburb of Hillarys, Western Australia 6025.





Hillarys Basin Hose Hazard

Did you know that braided flexible hoses or silver basin hoses have a limited lifespan in Hillary?

In fact,  burst flexible hoses have cost thousands of dollars of damage in the suburbs of Hillarys. Home owners in this suburb have too often returned from a trip or vacation, only to find thousands of litres of water running through the home.

Hillarys is now reaching an age where the new homes are actually more than a decade old. This means that some of the original flexi hoses that were used in the suburb are now beginning to fail.


Basin Pipe Repair



Alpha Co Plumbing and Gas recommends that Hillarys home owners inspect all flexi and basin hoses every 3 to 6 months.

How to spot a failing Flexi hose

If you can see any sign of rust on the pipe then it means its material has started to deteriorate. It is equivalent to a flood time bomb.

Additionally, while you may not notice rust, the pipe may be deformed in some way. If the pipe is no longer tubular and healthy looking then it means the internal structure has broken. Again, a leak or burst can occur at any time.

You should make sure to inspect all the hoses in your home. You can find them:

Under the kitchen Sink

Under the Bathroom Basin

Behind Filtration Systems

Behind Toilets

Don’t be the victim of a simple missed hose check. If you find any of the above, or think you require a professional inspections, call Alpha Co Plumbing and Gas on 1300 006 101 or visit us at https://www.alphacoplumbing.com.au
