Fexi Hoses

Some of the most stylish kitchen taps use flexi hose but you’ll probably find them all over your home. They’re used to connect your hot and cold water points to the base of your mixer taps. They’re easy to recognise. They are the manoeuvrable hoses that have a fabric or steel knit cover. Their flexibility means they can fit into tight spaces and don’t fill your cabinets with pipework but there’s a catch. Flexi hoses are prone to bursting. In fact the Sydney Morning Herald has reported 20% of Australia’s residential water damage claims are caused by flexi hoses bursting. And here’s another eyewatering fact for you. When they burst, flexi hoses can release up to 1,500 litres of water per hour. That means your home could be flooded while you’re away this summer and you’d have no idea until you arrived home!

Sewerage Eruption

The other day I arrived at a customers house to discover the poor bloke had a sewerage eruption along the back of his home.There was poo and toilet paper oozing everywhere over his path and garden . He asked if I have an Electric Eel to unblock his drain. To which I replied, "No, I only use the most efficient of equipment, which is the High Pressure Water Jetter". He then asked, what is the difference?   Electric Eel (Alternatively known as Sewer Snake) The way this tool operates is by a cable spinning around inside the pipe vigorously and abrasively to break through the blockage. If this is done for an extended amount of time it can wear through the pipe.This is a scenario that you would not want to happen.
