    Just a friendly reminder to inspect your washing machine hoses and replace them before they start to look like baby pythons.

    I got the braided steel ones. Do you think they make a big difference?

    yes, the braiding keeps the rubber from expanding, but they still need to be changed every 10 years or so.

    One of my air compressor hoses has looked like that for several years. I put a layer of black tape on it a while back and that seems to be doing the job.

    not much of a chance of that thing blowing open and flooding your house while you're not home.

    At a certain age, you should check your hoses regularly.

    I need a new dishwasher and the guy at Lowes told me that I may not be able to fit one under the counter because of some new rules and how the floor is cut or some bullshit. I personally think he doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about but he was pretty confident.
