    Leaking Garden Hose

    Asked Apr 24, 2018, 01:10 PM 4 Answers
    Hose was leaking. Cut off end and use a mending hose kit.
    But even with the hose clamp it still leaks. Possibly I have to re position the hose clamp. The female fitting is in the entire way?

    Thank you so much. The garden hose kit is brand new. But it leaks.
    The hose clamp maybe is in the wrong area.

    Hi P1189,

    Definitely need a hose washer (or the female hose connector cracked and needs to be replaced)...belongs in between the female hose connector and the outside faucet threads... should resolve the issue.

    Looking at this a little closer, I would move the clamp higher... move it up to about an 1/8th inch from the end of the hose. Install new hose washer and then see if all is resolved. If not, you may need a new adapter...
