How To Fix a Garden Hose Pinhole Leak

How To Fix a Garden Hose Pinhole Leak



Ever have a garden hose spring a leak at the peak of your garden season? Well now you can fix that pinhole leak in your garden hose with two, yes just two, pieces of material that most folks have stashed away in either a drawer or their garage. There's no need to make plans to go to the garden center to pick up another hose, especially if money is tight. Just locate a small hose clamp and a small piece of rubber (like a piece from an old bike inner tube). Or a tire patch would even work. Dry the garden hose off and place the piece of rubber over the pinhole and then place the hose clamp over the rubber. Tighten the hose clamp. Now just test your hose fix by turning on the water and making sure the garden hose doesn't leak. Now you can get back to gardening and make plans to buy a garden hose when you have the cash available.
