Pocket Hose - How to fix leak
The outer cover when exposed to sun will weaken causing the hose to explode. My fixes worked but the hose won't even last a season - very poor material. It came apart in the middle - it is now in the trash.
Purchased three pocket hoses all of them have burst at the hose connection.Cost to much to ship back.
I have taken apart and applied a hose clamp - works great now with no leaks! Use an Allen tool to take apart, cut the medal band with a Dremel Tool, slide hard black plastic part back up hose until later. Slide hose clamp over hose and put inner hose on fitting them outer yellow hose tighten clamp. Then put black hard plastic up to hose clamp and wrap with duck tape.
I have photo's if others want to fix - step by step.Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org #414067
