Braided Stainless-Steel Washing Machine Hoses - Best Update You Can Do

Stainless-Steel Washing Machine Hoses - Best Update You Can Do!Braided Stainless-Steel Washing Machine Hoses - Best Update You Can Do!

Whenever an inspector sees rubber hoses supplying water to a washing machine, particularly on an upper floor, they recommend to the buyer that they upgrade those supply lines to Braided Stainless-Steel Washing Machine Hoses.  When I first heard this (years ago), of course I went home and changed out my lines to my lower level washing machine.  After all, who wants a flooded basement? 

A few weeks ago I saw first hand the reason that spending about $35 or less can be the best update to stainless steel that a seller or buyer could possibly do.  I arrived at a home that I was showing, and we walked the yard before going inside.  The family I was touring really liked the neighborhood and the yard, plus the outside looked great.  Let's just hope the inside would measure up!

I opened up the lockbox and opened the front door--anticipation was high.  Unfortunately, it looked like Niagra Falls had decided to take up residence in this lovely home.  Water was almost to the front door.  I immediately called the listing agent who told me where the water main could be located.  I waded through the house (literally) and shut down the water and the hot water heater as it was going nonstop.  I then did a little investigation.  The second floor laundry room washing machine hoses had burst.  The second floor was flooded.  The first floor was flooded.  The basement was flooded.  $35 worth of Stainless-Steel Washing Machine Hoses could have saved this house.

We locked up the house and headed off to our next showing.  Later that day I got a call from the listing agent thanking me profusely for notifying her and stopping the water flow as quickly as I did.  She had already called in a water emergency repair company, and they were getting right to work.  She said there was $7,000 worth of damage.  $35 worth of Stainless-Steel Washing Machine Hoses could have saved the homeowners $7,000.
