How to replace the threaded piece on the end of a damage water hose. Read on for the details and a video.
Get a clean, straight cut on the water hose. I used garden shears and scissors.
To get the fitting down into the hose, it helps to lubricate the fitting and the hose first. I used a spray can of synthetic oil. Any oil would work, including food-grade oil. You just need it to be slippery so you can push the fitting all the way down into the hose. Without lubrication, this is nearly impossible.
Tighten the metal clamp with a simple screwdriver. That’s it! It’s fairly easy.
For about $2 worth of hardware, you save the expense of buying a new water hose. I feel good knowing I’m not putting this hose into a landfill.
