    Wait for the leak, get ya money's worth :thumbsdown:

    If it splits during work, just wrap some electrical tape round it with some ptfe inside the tape, then when home get ya fresh hose on :thumbsup:

    Although you probably can't resist getting the hose on now, so my guess is you'll get giddy and put it on anyway :rofl:

    There's a tape called Kraken tape that will fix it. It seals all sorts of stuff: hoses including high pressure hose, hot water, even gas, etc. Great stuff (I don't work for them!)

    If you leave it on I bet you keep "accidently" keep catching it on things, sliding it along sharp edges and maybe after a few days if is still going strong "accidently" fall on it with a stanley knife in your hand haha :D

    Talking of leaks, my orange PU hose decided it was going to die today. Freekin leaks all over the shop at the points where I kink it to stop the flow. I must have wrapped 6 or 7 loads of electrical tape round the holes. I had to put me phone in another pocket as that side of my shorts were getting drenched full on.

    I also have been waiting for old hose to die, it just wont quit, got a shiny new 100m of yellow mini bore here ready, then Evistevie commented on color branding your gear and made me jealous with his RED powder coated ladders so now I've had to order 100m of GREEN mini bore hose instead! :(

    Keep it on and use the tape.

    Ive got a bit of a leak on my wfp trolley, the connector from the hose to the red hose is leaking, and i cant seem to find a spare on gardiners website, anyone know where i can buy one?
