Introducing a new alternative to flexi hoses

No Blows is a new Australian product that has been developed as an alternative to flexi hoses.

In recent years, flexi hoses have become notorious for leaks and blowouts, causing immense damage to home and business infrastructure. A large proportion of all Australia’s building-related insurance claims are traceable to burst or leaky flexi hoses.



No Blows is pitching itself as a straightforward and simple alternative. It’s a copper adapter that will never blow out and is manufactured using high-grade, quality, lead-free, certified materials, tested to more than 2,000kPa.

No Blows meets AS/NZS AS3718:2021, AS/NZS 4020:2018 and WMS 060139 as well as safety and plumbing products WaterMark. It’s suitable for hot and cold water.

“We developed our No Blows product to replace flexi hoses, thus stopping blowouts,” co-founders Stephen Orr and Barry Van Rooy say.

Since the introduction of flexi hoses some 25 years ago, the plumbing industry has had to address untold harm caused by these solutions.

Stephen and Barry estimate that 22,000 flexi hose tap tail connectors fail every year, causing millions of dollars worth of damages to thousands of homes and businesses across Australia.

“Poor-quality flexi hoses have no longevity and are not designed to handle high pressure; they require annual maintenance checks, and the stainless steel braid corrodes and rusts leading to blowout,” they say.
