As your garden continues to expand and your planting area increases, you may find that the original length of your garden hose is not sufficient. Fortunately, extending a garden hose is not complicated, and below we’ll cover some simple and practical methods and tips.

There are three main ways to extend a garden hose

Hose fitting

Hose fittings are the most common and straightforward method of extending a garden hose. They are simple fittings that connect the ends of two hoses and allow you to connect multiple hoses together. Choose fittings that match the diameter of your existing hose and make sure they are made of a durable material like brass or stainless steel to prevent leaks.

Threaded fittings

Threaded fittings provide a more permanent and secure connection for extending garden hoses. They involve screwing male fittings to the end of one hose and female fittings to the end of another hose to create a tight seal. Threaded fittings are especially useful for connecting hoses to sockets or valves.

Use hose repair tape

Hose repair tape can be used not only to repair hose holes, but also to connect two sections of hose to achieve a hose extension. Hose extensions can be achieved by wrapping the hose repair tape around the connection between two sections of hose to ensure a tight seal.


6 steps to extend your garden hose

Assess your needs

Before embarking on a hose extension journey, it is important to determine the additional length required. Walk around your garden and measure the distance from the water source to the furthest area you want to water. Add these distances together to get the total length of hose extension required.

Buying an extension hose

First, make sure you purchase an extension hose that matches the original hose. Measure the diameter and length of the original hose to make sure you purchase the correct size extension hose.

Cutting the Raw Water Hose

Use a suitable tool (e.g. scissors or scissors) to cut the raw water pipe, leaving enough length to connect to the extension pipe.

Connecting the extension hose

Insert the extension hose into the end of the original hose, making sure the connection is tight. If necessary, use pipe nipples or clamps to strengthen the connection.

Testing the connection

Once the connection is complete, turn on the water supply and check the connection for leaks. If there is a leak, the connection will need to be rechecked to ensure a good seal.

Fixing the hose

Use hose clamps or other fixings to secure the hose to the ground or wall at a suitable location in the garden to prevent the hose from moving or being damaged.

Other tips for extension

Consider using a hose reel: Hose reels help manage extended hoses, prevent tangles and make them easier to store and handle.
Choose quality hose: Purchase durable, kink-resistant hose to ensure long-lasting performance.
Protect your hose from temperature extremes: Avoid exposing your hose to direct sunlight or freezing temperatures, which can damage the material.
Empty your hose before storage: Drain water from your hose before storing to prevent freezing and potential damage.
