Are Metal Shower Pipes Better Than Plastic?
Both metal and plastic shower pipes will do the job. Metal hoses are more robust, last longer than PVC ones, and withstand high water pressure.
What is the Standard Hose Length?
There is no standard length for hoses. It depends on personal preference. 1.25 or 1.5 metres would be sufficient, while a long hose may be difficult to use. But, if you require extended hoses, we offer long ones with 1.75 and 2 metres in length.
What Causes a Shower Hose to Leak?
Shower hoses leak rarely. The connections to the hose leak because it contains rubber O-ring washers that wear over time or if the water pressure is high at the connection point.
If the connection point is loose, it can cause the hose to leak; tightening the connection can prevent leakages.
If the hose has cracks or holes, it can cause it to leak; it happens if it has been used for a long time.
Can it be Repaired?
Most shower hoses leak because the washers at the connections are worn down. You can replace the washers, but it can't be repaired if it has holes or cracks. Duct and similar hose repair tapes are unsuitable for any hose carrying water under pressure.
What Does Double Interlock Shower Hose Mean?
A double interlock hose is constructed differently from ordinary metal ones. It is more robust and flexible and can withstand high water pressure.
