The Night of the Burst Washing Machine Hose in Lafayette, LA

Our title might sound like the name of a cheesy, made-up horror movie, and…it is.  But at Pipes & Plugs  we’re certified plumbers, and we like to talk about—you guessed it—all things plumbing.  So with Halloween just around the corner we want to talk about one nightmare that probably won’t ever make it to the big screen—the burst washing machine hose.

Burst washing machine hoses are one of the most common causes of water damage in homes.  Because of the tremendous amount of water that flows through washing machine hoses, a hose that ends up with a hole in it can cause a lot of damage in a very short period of time.  Imagine all of the stuff you have near your washing machine.  Do you have a finished basement?  Some kind of flooring or carpet?  Other appliances or possessions?  A burst washing machine hose could leave you with inches of water on the floor and thousands of dollars in damages.  Each year washing machine hoses that fail are responsible for millions of dollars in flood damages nationwide.  The local plumbers at Pipes & Plugs want to save you from this plumbing nightmare.  Here’s what you can do.

How to avoid a burst washing machine hose in your Lafayette or New Iberia home:

  1. Never run your washer while you are asleep or not home.
  2. Check to make sure your hose connections are secure.
  3. Replace washing machine hoses every 3 to 5 years.
  4. Inspect your hoses regularly for small leaks.
  5. If you replace a hose make sure it is free of kinks.
  6. Purchase a high-quality hose.

It is much more cost-effective to replace an aging washing machine hose than it is to pay for flood damages caused by a hose failure.  If you need assistance inspecting or replacing your washing machine hose, or any other plumbing repair, Pipes & Plugs is always happy to assist Lafayette and New Iberia residents.  Don’t let this plumbing nightmare become a reality in your home!
