COST BENEFIT ANALYSIS
“The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”
A 5 foot pair of standard OEM hoses retails for about $14.00 and should be replaced every 3 to 5 years, depending on what “expert” you listen to. Braided steel hoses cost up to $30.00 or more and should be replaced, because they only have a 10 year “limited” warranty and may not last the life of a washer.
It’s unclear just how often, since so many designs and styles are flooding the market, pun intended. FLOODCHEK hoses have a suggested retail price of $42.95, need never be replaced and have never failed, in this our 20th year. Your choices: Replace 2 or 3 pairs of hoses over the life of your washer and still be at a risk, or install a pair of FLOODCHEK hoses and get on with your life for the next 20, or even, 30 years.
And we’re glad to introduce it to you. For those that rely on the old cliché “We don’t have to worry, we’re insured”, be aware that after that consumer pays a $500.00 deductible on a $10,000.00 loss, that they gambled against happening, their insurer may very well increase the premium on their homeowners policy by 50% for 3 to 5 years.
“What, me worry?” They should.
Someone has to pay, because it wasn’t good business sense to go after the manufacturer.
The word’s getting out, but you won’t find FLOODCHEK at the big box stores, or any other retailer’s shelf. FLOODCHEK hoses cost more to build by hand here in the U.S. than their markup can bear.
They like to buy cheap and sell dear. They can’t buy FLOODCHEK cheap. Quality costs. That’s why we sell directly to you.
