    my pole hose split today just next to the barb so after cutting it off & realising i couldn't get the new hose end back on i sat in the van & heated the hose end up with the *** lighter, it took a bit of fiddling but worked fine lol. i use gardiners soft hose which they dont sell anymore so i dont know if this would work on stiffer hose

    yeh it was the van lighter i used cos i don't smoke. doh it never occured to me to use an ordinary lighter, but that would be much easier , might get 1 to just stick in the tool box
