If you find a puncture in your hose or leaks around the nozzle, you can stop it with duct tape. Ensure that your hose is dry, around where you are placing the duct tape as water will prevent the tapes adhesive from working effectively. Wrap duct tape around your hose in the problem area and press hard to ensure no bubbles or excess air under the tape. Give the adhesive a little while to stick to the hose, and then your hose will be as good as new.
