Xhose Repair

My fellow cheap crappy hose (but convenient) buyers, I have found a repair.

I have blowen up 3 (now), 1 green and 2 extremes (bought in a 2 pack). The green blew apart in the middle and the extreme breaks right at the end.

As I went to throw this one away I noticed the end unscrewed, as a salvager I went to take the end off. That is when I found the simple fix;

Used 2 wrenches to unscrew it

That's GREAT! Thanks

We have not yet blown ours, but I guess it is inevitable. And will be fixin' it, if when it happens.

Safe travels

Great tip, but the only one I had was a greenie that blew apart in about six places at a supposed premier RV park in Phoenix. Same place also blew one of my classic white hoses. Since we've room enough, I picked up the heaviest duty regular 50' garden hose and am using that whenever pressure seems to be an issue. Whenever I get around to needing it an the sticks & bricks, I'll get one of those extremes with the brass fittings.

Walt, I decided that I need to connect the pressure regulator directly to the spigot, THEN the "Y" connector for the supply hose and the aux hose! I suspect that most folks (including me) who have had a problem with these hoses were connected directly to the CG water spigot, and I hear that the pressure can be really high sometimes!

With these hoses it is not if but when it will break/burst. Great idea but all of them are total crap.

That is how I do it, still each has only lasted a year with use a couple times a week. But now maybe 2 years.

This I totally understand, but I they make a great back up hose.

I got tired of carrying a big 50 footer. With an on board pressure washer (w/75' of hose) and hose spigots in place of the outside shower, I don't really need another big hose to lug around.

These make a convenient just in case, I just keep shortening this one till it's a 3 footer.

Xhose Repair

PDR John.... It looks in your pics like the hose is splitting right at the end of the connection nipple. That black threaded ferrule provides only locking function . What is needed is bending strain relief. I 'm guessing those are standard thread cuts on the brass fitting, so it may be possible to find a plastic locking piece with the same female thread cut, the same i.d., but about 1/2" to 3/4" longer. Thoughts?

I agree John, I was wondering about a spring or another layer of rubber. Like a air hose.

I'll keep thinking on it, till I over think it. Then I will come up with a simple solution.

I'm still kicking myself for throwing my other one away.

I'm actually going to buy another from Walmart, just to see what happens.
