Braided water supply lines
These hoses only have a service life of ten years and need to be replaced to avoid potential blow outs. The image on the left below shows signs that this braided hose is well and truly due for replacement:

When to replace a braided water supply line
As per the first image in this post, you may notice some rusting of the metal braiding, kinking of the hose or slight fraying of the material. This can indicate that your water supply line is on the way out.
Act now, over 1,000 litres of water can flood into your house from burst water supply lines. The last thing you need is water damage to your floors, carpets, cabinetry and the like.
