I sort of installed a soaker hose this morning and had to cut it to length and install a new fitting on the end which was easy enough - however it now leaks like the dickens at the new fitting (oh the irony.) Is there something I can do to help seal up the end a bit more so the water actually soaks what I want instead of flooding the end the fitting is on? Would pipe dope or teflon tape do the trick in this case?
It is a recycled rubber weep hose. I'll try to re-fit it tonight, although it occurred to me since I posted the first time, a fitting that actually covers the hose instead of a crimp fitting it might work out better.
The fitting I used is similar to this one. I would guess something more like this would be a little more effective.
