Many people have garden hoses in their yard with broken or damaged ends. There is no reason to buy a brand new hose if the connectors are damaged. Fixing the end of a garden hose is a simple task that takes less than an hour to complete.
Drain the hose of any water. Hold the end of the garden hose above your head. Move down the hose lifting it up to drain all of the water out.
Take a new connector end and slide it 1 to 2 inches past the end of the hose. You may have to loosen the connector clamp to fit it onto the garden hose.
Insert the washer down into the connector. It should be flat against the hose. All connectors come with washers included.
