If you are looking to prevent losses before they start in your community association, inspect and replace standard washing machine hoses made of black rubber with those made of braided stainless-steel.
We have experience working with managers to institute preventative maintenance programs and policy resolutions that are proven to reduce washing machine hose losses. Here are some options to consider:
A policy resolution that enforces annual in-unit inspections of plumbing fixtures (including washing machine hoses) that includes required replacement for noted deficiencies
A maintenance program that requires the periodic replacement of washing machine hoses in accordance with useful life
A policy resolution that requires a steel-braided washing machine hose or other, proven burst-free hoses
A community-wide washing machine hose replacement program
The bottom line is that washing machine hoses WILL start bursting and causing loss leaks, so community association managers should act now to prevent disaster later. If you have any questions or need more information on this issue, please contact us.
