How do I repair my water / garden hose?
We have a rather expensive 100 ft garden hose (I think we paid around $ 35 for it last fall). My husband left it on with a nozzle one day last fall and it formed a bubble near the end of the hose right before the metal connector. I just got home, looks like he left it on this morning and it burst at the bubble and sprayed water all day. I hate to buy another hose...is there something I can do to repair this one? It doesn't have to be pretty, just functional. If there isn't a good way to repair it, is there something else that I can use it for out in the yard? FYI this is one of those hoses that has little "strings" throughout the plastic.

    The replacement part you are looking for is a burred fitting with a clamp. All you do is cut the hose off before the bubble, put the clamp on the hose, push the burred fitting into the hose and tighten the clamp with a screwdriver. Make sure you put the clamp on before the burred fitting.

    you can either use duct tape to help secure it or you can cut the hose past the bubble then re-splice the end onto the hose

    You can cut off the bubble and put on a new plastic or metal end. cne which you can buy at the hardware store. You will need to know the diameter of the hose. It would cost like 2-3 dollars for the new piece. It inserts into the hose and then it has a clamp type thing that you screw tight over it on the outside of the hose.

    $ 35.00 is not alot of money for a 100 ft garden hose,a good hose would not bubble and you will have more time into fixing it than it is worth, buy a new one.

    you can unscrew the fitting nearest to bubble. then cut the hose in half and if not wasting a lot of hose just screw the fitting back on to end of hose. if cutting the hose will result in throwing a lot of hose away, then cut the hose either side of the bubble and buy a joiner fitting and screw on to both hoses you would have.
