Survivor Creates Plumbing Wonder – Australian-Made Bendable and Extendable Silicone Nozzles


VICTORIA, Australia September, 2012 – Most people who suffer major injuries usually wallow in self-pity and lose their self-esteem. They lose their drive and zest for life. But this is not the case for Alex John. This Aussie survivor turned what could have been a disaster into a wonderful opportunity. After suffering from a serious injury to his spine and while he was off work, unable to continue his trade as a plumber, Alex managed to develop a one-of–a-kind plumbing wonder.

Alex John, Owner and Founder of the BENT-OVER™ Silicone Nozzle company, has been a plumber for 16 years, working in all areas of plumbing both commercial and domestic. In 2007, Alex went through a very tough and challenging situation when doctors discovered that he had an impounded fracture in his vertebrae and had to go through surgery. Alex was hospitalised for 2 months and attended physical rehab for 4 months.

The rehabilitative stage was the most challenging of all. For a person who has been used to an active lifestyle like Alex, being stuck in bed was definitely not easy. It was traumatic and extremely frustrating for him and his family, who disliked seeing him so inactive. “It was during these trying times that I came up with the initial design concept of a bendable and extendable silicone nozzle,” Alex says.

The BENT-OVER™ Silicone Nozzle, designed after 16 years as a plumber and due to frustration over the lack of practical and flexible silicone nozzles available, features a very practical screw point. This is handy enough to ensure the attachment of any standard silicone tubes and the tubes can freely move and explore different directions with the use of the two ‘ball joint’ feature. The length of the tubes can also be modified by adding additional ball joints, which means plumbers can easily make the tubes longer to provide easier to those hard-to-reach places.

The bendable silicone nozzles are also made to be durable and can be cut into different lengths. They are made of ‘acetal’, one of the strongest plastics of today, making it more resistant to acid and chemicals. The bendable and extendable silicone nozzle is proudly Australian designed, made and owned and is of great use to both professional plumbers and ‘jacks of all trades’ using the nozzle to apply silicone around the home.

Spa installer Tony says about using the BENT-OVER™ Silicone Nozzles, “The task was successfully completed and I can unreservedly recommend your flexible silicone nozzles for this application. The Bent-Over Silicone Nozzle is the only obvious solution to applying new sealant to the lower (underside) sealing surfaces from outside the spa.”

Alex John’s traumatic experience paved the way for him to create a one-of-a-kind product that was inspired by his own extensive experience as a plumber. The BENT-OVER™ Silicone Nozzle is an innovation that Alex and fellow Aussies can be proud of. To learn more, visit
