Suitable for Permanent Use When Used to Extend Water Supply Pipes?

by articoceanic » Thu Jun 04, 2015 12:45 am

Hello

http://www.screwfix.com/p/wras-hose-15m ... _container

Does anyone know if these are suitable for permanent use connected to the water supply?

thanks

BACKGROUND
I'm installing a douche shower spray near toilet, and need to extend the water supply to it, as no pipes nearby. Was thinking of attaching these to the pipes underneath the bath tap and extending the water supply that way.

But then read that shower hoses can't be permanently attached to the water supply, due to wear and tear from changing water pressure causing them to leak.

Was wondering if these are different and are suitable?

HI

These are for permanent use, but what you seem to be suggesting sounds like something of a total bodge. There are also special regulations covering this type of ascending shower.
