Question about Dryers
I have to replace a broken flex hose at my condo in chicago. The old broken hose is plastic. I heard this is againt code. Is it supposed to have a metal flex pipe?
Yes, the semi-rigid metal flex tubing is recommended because it resists crushing, crimping, collapsing and heat. The old plastic flex hoses would collapse easily, develop more clogs, melt and rodents could chew through them easily. When installing a new flex hose, the SHORTER and STRAIGHTER you can keep the run, the better. The more bends you have, the greater possiblity you have of creating areas where lint can clog. I hope this helps you. Post back if you need further guidance.
