Can you fix a leaky garden hose...

7 posts in this topic

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.
