How To Fix A Female Hose End

Spread the love

Ever have a hose bust a hole near the female end of it? Why replace the whole thing when you can fix the female hose end? I’ll show you how.

I’m not sure about your place, but we have pretty long hoses around here. Occasionally, there will be holes that burst the hoses. Rather than spend more money than needed on buying a new hose, we spend a couple dollars and usually just fix the hose.

Steps To Fix The Hose

  • First, we need to cut the end off below the hole/crack. The end you cut off can be thrown away.
  • Next, slide the hose clamp onto the hose far enough down to still get the end on.
  • Slide the new hose end into the cut end of the hose. It will be a tight fit, so be sure to push it all the way in.
  • Then, slide the hose clamp over the hose end that was inserted into the hose. You want the clamp close to the new end of the hose.
  • Finally, tighten the hose clamp with the flat head screwdriver.

Unknown Homestead

Hello! Welcome to Unknown Homestead! I'm Erika. While I would love to say we have an amazing, huge homestead that is complete and bringing in the's a work in progress on just over 2 acres. We bought this property in 2019. I had big dreams but this fit the price range. Being built in the 1980's it was not an old house like people buy, but it still needed some work to be done. I handle the animals and yardwork, while Greg handles the smoking/grilling of meats and still works a fulltime job until this homestead is complete and profitable. Having 3 stepchildren does help get some things done around here, but now there is another one on the way. We started out as (I guess you would say) normal people. Depending on grocery stores for food and binge watching whatever TV show or movie we were into at the time. Our ways have since changed (and are continuing to change). We have added chickens, ducks, turkeys, and pigs to our Unknown Homestead (along with our dogs and cat of course). While this property is not that old to us, I have been trying to change my ways for many years. This blog shows what we are doing and how, with the hopes it can help some of you with your hopes and dreams as well!
