Ways to re-purpose a busted hose?


Hello everyone,

What are some ways you can re-purpose a bad hose?

The hose in the picture exploded on me, so I cut the bad end off and I am planning on putting a clamp on it and puncturing tiny holes in it to use it for a slow drip around some bushes.

Any other ideas?

They make "hose-mender" ends and splicers, sold at most box , hardware, and even Wal-Mart stores.

Just re-attach a mender and you have a usable hose again.

Siphon hoses, coverings for steel rods, whips, covers for swing set chains, come to mind as uses for busted hose material.

Dang, wish I knew about the hose mender before I poked holes in this one. Next time I guess. Thanks!

Being on the farm 60 miles round trip to anywhere that hose would have been plugged by making a wooden barbed fitting and zip tied in place if I couldn't find my worm screw clamps.

I use a short hose for water heater draining or hooking up to utility sink in the basement and filling buckets/whatever with water.

And unfortunately last week I had a floor drain overflow so I used a hose to run clean water over the affected area to wash all the crap down that came up.
