Introduction: Fixing a Punctured Garden Hose in 3 Minutes!
One of my garden hoses sprang a leak. On closer inspection it looks like a hole was punctured into its wall. I suspected one of my doggies was the culprit here.
Read on for how I did a quick fix to this leak.
Step 1: The Tools and Materials.
The stuff I used to fix this leak are as follows;
A flat blade screwdriver.
A hose clamp.
A roll of self adhering rubber tape (I used electrical grade tape but there is also rescue tape).
Step 2: Applying the Rubber Tape.
I cut a length of the rubber tape and applied it firmly to the leak spot. I made sure to keep the rubber surface free of dirt for proper sealing onto itself.
Step 3: Clamping It Down.
I put a hose clamp to keep pressure applied at all times.
Step 4: Completion.
Now with my water pump on, there is no leak. All this done in 3 minutes or less!
