Can you fix a leaky garden hose...

7 posts in this topic

Are there any products that you can use to fix a crack in a garden hose?

You can buy a hose repair kit....cut the bad part out, fit ends onto the coupling and tighten. Most hardware or home centers should have them, couple dollars.

WHat he said. You buy a double male adapter that fits the Inside Diameter of your hose, cut out the bad part, place hose clamps on the hose. Install the adapter and tighten the clamps around the seam. Veyr simple and cheaper than a new hose or working witha shorter hose cause you threw away a whole section.

If you do the repair make sure you measure the inside diameter of the hose. You will need that to get the correct fitting.

Thanks guys!

I was hoping that there was some sort of miracle glue that would fix the problem.

did you try duct tape? grin

I've done the duct tape repair in a pinch on one of my hoses, but it still leaked. grin The method above was what I used for the permanent fix.

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
