I needed a lot of garden hose so lay out a drip irrigation system. So on junk day i searched around for used garden hose and found a lot of it most of what i needed i found in the trash.
So what you need is some pipe a hack saw, and two zip ties.
I just happen to have a long piece of scrap metal pipe, and it just fit perfectly inside a garden hose, tightly. Cut off a pices about 3 inches long. And twist it into one of the hose ends, then do the same with the other end.
Make sure its a tight fit and yourtwist them together as much as you can. Then use the zip ties to tighten the hose around the metal pipe. And there you go!
