    is there a way of mending the hole , it seems a waste to just get a whole new length - its near the middle so i cant just cut it off

    my hose is the soft yellow one that gardiners have stopped selling cos they got complaints about it i think, but i've used it every working day since i got it 15 months ago & this is the first hole so its done me well. i know i've seen a video somewhere about hose repair involving fishing line but i just cant find it. also my hose is 6mm & the joins rc recomended look good but are 8mm to 8mm. im sure ive seen plastic ones somewhere but i cant find them either

    these will work as well, cut the hose, heat the 2 ends of the hose into hot water and wait then push the O clips over hose then push the metal joint into the hose. then when its cool it will make a better connection.

    DONT use plastic as if a car or anything runs over it it could break and thats the end of that!
