Floodsafe Hoses Means No Water

Laundry Shutoff Valve
I bought a couple of hoses for the washing machine.  The only stainless braided hoses they had in stock were the floodsafe (also $10 more expensive).  When I hooked them up, the water flow was super slow.  It means every time we use our washing machine we have to wait.  I took them off and returned them.

I joked with the store clerk at the return station that they’re flood safe because the hose doesn’t let any water through. He said it wasn’t the first time he had heard this complaint.

This time they had the non-floodsafe hoses in stock, so I bought them.  They fill at least twice as fast.
