I am looking for some creative solutions to repair the hose on by steam cleaner.
The brand is Hoover Steamvac widepath 6500, model: F6028-900.

The problem is with the hose pulled away from the plastic molded coupling. This is the hose that carried the dirty water back to the unit, so it needs to be water-tight.
I have tried splitting the black connector to trim the hose and re-install it, but it appears to be molded as a single unit and will not split.
Anyone have any ideas how to repair this? The unit is older, so trying to find a replacement hose is difficult and expensive.
