Floodchek's 20 year guaranteee- Is it a scam?
Floodchek hoses aren't the type that restricts the flow of water if something goes wrong. I've read enough complaints about those hoses to know to avoid those.
Instead, floodchek hoses claim that they're better made and more durable than the standard rubber hoses or stainless steel braided hoses. But, has anybody really had any problems with their stainless steel braided hoses?
As proof that floodchek hoses are superior, floodcheck says that guarantee their hoses for 20 years while rubber hoses need to be replaced every 3-5 years.
But, when you carefully read floodchek's guaranty, it actually states, ""They're guaranteed for 20 years, or the life of the washing machine."
But, this is a scam, right? No washing machine nowadays is going to last 20 years. My previous washing machine was only 6 years when it broke down, and I needed to get a new one.
So, if floodchek guaranty really covers the life of the washing machine, which inevitably will be much shorter than 20 years, this 20 year warranty is pretty much meaningless.
