Another major cause for concern is the rubber hoses that connect your washing machine to your water supply in the laundry room. These hoses will deteriorate from the inside out and rupture due to loss of elasticity. The way to prevent this is to replace these hoses with stainless steel washing machine hoses. These will not rust or deteriorate, ensuring peace of mind.
Water quality is the main reason for most plumbing complications. The local municipal water contains minerals, contaminants, and chemicals that cause scale build-up and deteriorate the inner workings of toilets, faucets, appliances, and other plumbing fixtures. Whole house water filtration, conditioning, and purification are the only solutions to this issue.
