If your AC unit is producing high pressure water jets then there is a good chance that the hose connecting the compressor to the unit is faulty. In most cases, this hose will burst if the pressure gets too high.
To fix the problem, you’ll need to replace the hose.
How to replace a high pressure AC hose
There are a few different ways to replace a high pressure AC hose.
The most common way to do this is to remove the old hose andreplace it with a new one. To do this, you will need to remove the cover over the air conditioning unit and the screws that hold it in place.
Once these are removed, you can pull the old hose out.
To replace the hose, you will need to buy a new one. The type of hose that you need will depend on the type of air conditioning unit that you have.

How to troubleshoot a high pressure AC hose
If you are experiencing high pressure in an AC hose, there are a few things to check:
- Make sure that the AC unit is properly grounded. The ground wire should be connected to a metal part of the AC unit and the neutral wire should be connected to the grounding screw on the unit. If you are having trouble with your AC unit, this may be a problem.
- Make sure that the hose is not kinked or twisted. If it is, it can cause high pressure.
- Check to see if there is any debris or objects in the line that could be causing the high pressure. If there is, they will need to be cleaned out before continuing.
- Inspect the valve at the end of the hose for leaks or damage. If there is anything wrong with it, it will need to be replaced before proceeding.
