By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools: 
Aviation nippers
Hose brass connector kit (brass nipple connector and hose clamp)
Snob nose flat screwdriver

This post shows the five steps to repair a damaged hose.

Step 1: Above fig.1 shows the hose is a mess. Straighten the hose to find the problem. 
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the hose to see if there were other leaks and there was no leaks and the water came out of the hose like it was designed.

Step 3: Fig.2 and fig.3 shows the hose, the problem was the hose connector had been flatten by a automobile tire and the brass connector
now useless. Use strong scissors to cut the hose, or use aviation nippers which can easily cut through the thick hose.

Step 4: Fig.4 shows the brass nipple is in the hose tip and that the hose clamp is around the hose. Put the hose clamp on first before putting on the brass nipple, this will make it easier to push the hose clamp towards the brass nipple then use the flat screwdriver to tighten the clamp. A simple order of operation, but one that is critical in this simple hose repair.
