Drain Hose Water Damage- Boynton Beach, Florida
Friday, January 15, 2021
The washing machine is a very convenient appliance. But it can quickly become extremely inconvenient if the drain hose comes loose, allowing waste water to flood the area around the washing machine and cause significant drain hose water damage to your property.
What is a drain hose?
The drain hose on your washing machine allows laundry waste water to drain out of the machine and into a sink or standpipe, also called a drain pipe. Your laundry room may have a special alcove built into the wall, called a drain pipe receiver, that holds this hose securely. If not, you must fasten the hose to prevent it from coming loose.
