What You’ll Need:
What You Do:
Turn the water on and pinpoint the location of the leak.
Cut out the leaky section of the hose with a utility knife (Be sure to turn the water off first).
Loosen the screws on the hose clamps, and slide one onto each end of the cut hose.
Insert the coupler into each hose end. It’ll take a bit of twisting, turning and grunting to get it to go in.
Slide the clamps down to the site of the repair, and tighten the screws.
Turn the water on, and check for leaks.
