A $10 piece could save you thousands
Next time you’re out of town, you don’t want to have to worry about your washing machine hose rupturing and spraying water all over your home. If that happens, you could sustain hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage should the situation go unchecked for a few days.
The solution? Ditch the rubber washing machine hoses and go with braided metallic flexible hoses. This job is easy to do yourself after watching a YouTube tutorial. Steel braided hoses typically cost around $10 a piece at any hardware store.
