A garden hose serves many purposes on hot summer days. It can be a gardening tool, used for outdoor cleaning, filling up water balloons or as a sprinkler for the kiddos! Whatever you’re using it for, a punctured hole can be a nuisance. It wastes water and decreases pressure from the end of the hose. But no need to worry! If you’ve got a rubber band, you’ve got a solution. Just wrap it around the hole until the band is secure against it. The band should block the exit and allow water to keep flowing. We recommend a thicker band to make it easier for the rubber to lie flat against the hose. We think our Slip-On Grips would be ideal for getting the job done.
