I carelessly ran the lawn mower over a soaker hose severing the female connection end.
My sister now lives in our family home and my fathers shop is just the way he left it 20+ years ago, brimming with just about anything you could ever want or need in the way of hardware. (sometimes its easier to buy what you need than try to find where he kept his supply of thing-a-ma-jigs but) I found a coffee can full of plumbing parts and located just what I needed.
All I had to do was make a clean cut.
I had some trouble forcing the replacement into the hose so I used boiling water to make the hose more pliable
Then I could insert the female connection and screw the collar on nice and snug.
My frugal roots run deep. Thanks for your help Dad. I’ll never call you a pack rat again.
