Flooding Disaster Caused by Faulty Washing Machine Supply Line in Ocean City?

2/7/2023 (Permalink)

Rubber ducks float in a flooded laundry room. We restore water damage 24-hours a day in Okaloosa County.

For more than twenty years, our local team in Fort Walton Beach has been responding to water damage emergencies in Ocean City. Our technicians have the training, experience, and equipment to restore water damage emergencies quickly and efficiently. Routine inspection of your washing machine supply lines may prevent severe water damage. The Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety offers these helpful tips for maintaining your washing machine supply lines:

  • Look for signs the supply hose may be ready to fail—blisters in the hose, worn tubing, stress cracks, or a loose connection
  • Replace the supply hose with a reinforced steel braided hose if it shows any sign of wear
  • Tighten the connection if it feels loose. The most common site of failure is near the connection where the hose bends.
  • Replace supply hoses every five years, even if there is no evident deterioration or wear. Some signs of deterioration may occur from the inside out and may not be visible until it is too late. When replacing washing machine supply hoses, always choose a reinforced steel braided hose over the traditional un-reinforced rubber hose. These hoses will last longer and are far less likely to result in catastrophic water loss.
