Lucky that I noticed a little puddle on the floor by the washer. The hose fitting for the water lines were corroded and started leaking.

A quick replacement with heavy duty hoses and back on line with laundry.

Thank goodness our washer is in the garage so no water damage.

After many ruptured hoses back in the day - my mother started turning the water off at the faucets. I do that to this day. I've never had a leaking hose. The most I've ever had to do is change washers.

Ugh, more than 10 years ago we went on vacation for 2 weeks, came home to find the RO broke and flooded our home, had to have floor molding replaced, sheet rock, not to mention damage to furniture... at that time our insurance company paid for most of it... seems insurance companies now a days only want to collect your premium and not pay out anything in damages...

Sorry to be so dense, but what is an RO?

I don't know either. What does RO stand for?

Reverse Osmosis? Water purifier?

You're not dense... when you live in area where you feel the need to have your water filtered this acronym is familiar... RO is Reverse Osmosis, it removes impurities from your drinking water.
