The Association’s Insurance Carrier inspected the community and made the recommendation that owners install No-Burst Washing Machine Hoses. If your washing machine is connected to bare rubber hoses, you’re risking thousands of dollars’ worth of water damage. Under constant water pressure, these hoses are prone to leaks or even bursting!
No-burst washing machine water hoses are encased in a woven metal sleeve that prevents weak spots in the rubber from developing into leaks. The washer water hoses are available at home centers and through Amazon; installing the washer water hose is relatively easy. If you are uncomfortable with this task, or need help a handyman or Urban Maintenance might be able ti assist.
It is strongly recommended that no-burst hoses (aka burst-proof hoses) be installed on your washing machines.
