If your rubber garden hose has a kink, there are a few steps you can take to try to repair it:
Straighten the kink: First, try to straighten the kink in the hose as much as possible by gently pulling it apart.
Heat the hose: You can use hot water or a heat gun to soften the kinked area of the hose. Hold the hose under hot running water or use a heat gun to apply heat to the kinked area. This will help to make the rubber more pliable and easier to work with.
Work out the kink: Once the kinked area is softened, try to work out the kink by bending and flexing the hose. Use your hands to gently massage the kinked area until it is straightened out.
Apply lubricant: If the kink is stubborn and won’t come out, you can try applying a lubricant such as vegetable oil or silicone spray to the kinked area. This will help to reduce friction and make it easier to straighten the hose.
Prevent future kinks: To prevent future kinks in your garden hose, make sure to store it properly by coiling it up neatly and avoiding any sharp bends or twists that can lead to kinks.
