Flexi Hoses

We have them all over our houses and places of work!  They are easy to miss unless you are specifically looking for them.  They are used to connect your toilets and taps to the water supply.  They might be in the cabinetry or exposed.

They are rubber hoses that are surrounded by braided lengths of stainless steel.

Flexi hoses generally last between 5 and 10 years.  It is recommended that they are checked every year by your licensed Plumber.  If you are a Fantastic Plumbing client we will provide you with a complimentary plumbing inspection when we are completing other jobs at your home or office.  Replacing the flexi hoses are very inexpensive if managed proactively.

There are new flexi hoses on the market now with a 15-year warranty, so we are providing these to our clients to ensure the longevity of the product.

If they do their job you never have to worry about them.  We started looking closely at our emergency jobs over the last few months and a burst flexi hose keeps coming up as the reason for a call to us after hours.  We are a 24/7 company and we can gladly assist you if this emergency arises but if you have time to do a little audit you can avoid this hassle, expense and potential damage to your flooring and cabinetry.

To avoid a burst flexi hose at your place we recommend some housekeeping at yours

  • Check on the warranty (at Fantastic Plumbing it is 15yrs)
  • Only use a qualified Plumber to install flexi hoses
  • Regularly check them for rust, fraying or bulging
  • Replace them if in doubt
  • Teach everyone at your place how to turn off the water in case of an emergency
  • If you are going away on holidays turn off the water

Take a look around your place at each them, if you see any rust or fraying please don’t hesitate in booking a job now.

  • We had an urgent plumbing issue on a Sunday afternoon and tried several other local plumbers before talking to Conor, being after hours he could not have been more helpful and prompt in response and had the problem sorted within an hour. As a tradesman myself I appreciate reliability and I would highly recommend fantastic plumbing.

  • Fantastic Plumbing lived up to their name. On time, polite, reliable and created confidence in explaining details of my hot water system to one of those husbands who missed the handyman gifts!

    Ian Bridger, Byron

  • Our hot water system was being unpredictable and unreliable, and we weren't sure what the issue was... Conor had it sorted in no time. He was responsive, efficient and helpful - even in the midst of the pre-Splendour rush... We are now enjoying lovely hot water. Thank you!!

    Jacky Morris, Suffolk Park

  • When we recently had a pipe blockage in our investment property in Ballina and our tenant sent us photos we were organizing the fix from NZ. Thankfully we contacted Fantastic Plumbing who located the blockage, jetted it until the pipe was cleared and …. CLEANED UP!!! We were in the process of trying to get a cleaner to the property when Conor sent us photos of the completed work. After speaking to out tenant who couldn’t be happier we saved on the cleaner! If you want no hassels in plumbing do yourself a favour and call Fantastic Plumbing.

  • Conor was prompt, efficient and professional. He showed great attention to detail and I received a summary of the consultation with detailed information and photos for each issue that was needing attention, and for those that were functioning perfectly. Easy, friendly and informative. I will be making him my go-to man for any plumbing issues from now on
