tap hose bursts under kitchen sink

Emergency callout to a house with water coming from underneath the kitchen sink. The rubber hose to the monobloc tap had burst, I capped off the pipes and stopped the leak. These hoses seem very prone to bursting as i often get callouts and, the tap hose is the culprit. Although the hoses do make connecting the tap up a lot easier than the metric copper pipe on other models.

Three Quarter inch elbow blows off qualpex in wall

Emergency callout to a house with water coming from ceilings at high speed. Narrowed down the problem to this wall(pictured) and cut an inspection hole. The elbow had popped off completely from the qual-pex pipe. The damage was not great as i got there quickly. Had this happened when nobody was home the ceilings would have come down and the damage and cost would be high.
