I have an American Standard kitchen faucet from 2011. The hot and cold water supply line hoses are falling apart. The outside silver/grey layer has turned brown and flakes off. In the attached picture you can see the underneath whitengut of the hose, which looks ready to burst.
I'm trying to figure out what caused that, and I can only think that it was caused by vapors of chemicals stored in that same cabinet. Under the sink we have the usual stuff
- Dish detergent,
- Potatoes and onions in a bin,
This can't be caused by the water itself; you can see the supply line to the removable faucet is perfectly fine in the picture (silver). Why didn't that one turn brown and peel off?
I have a replacement faucet coming and the supply line to the dishwasher is starting to brown out. Does anyone have any thoughts as to what may have caused hoses 3 years old to look like they are 30 years old?
