A hole in a garden hose is not only annoying, it can also cost you extra money on your water bill. Instead of throwing out the hose and getting a new one, purchase a hose repair kit and fix your leaky hose. Hose repair kits include couplers that you use to connect the hose together after you cut the hole away. Kits are available at most home-improvement centers.
Cut the hose on each side of the hole with a sharp utility knife. Make the cut as straight as possible, leaving two pieces of hose.
Place the ends of the hose into a bucket of hot water to help make the hose more pliable.
Slide a hose clamp over each end of the hose. The hose clamps come with the coupling kit.
Insert one end of the coupling into one end of the hose and insert the opposite end into the other cut-off piece of hose.
Position the clamps over the hose ends and tighten the clamps with a screwdriver.
