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.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
