Water is critical to keeping your patio looking lush and green. Shrubs and flowers are quick to wilt on a warm summer in the absence of regular watering. It is important to keep a well maintained watering system so that you can keep a well maintained patio garden. In order for you watering system to function with a high degree of efficacy, you should ensure that your garden hose fitting stays in good condition.
A garden hose fitting is the little round piece of plastic or metal that connects your water gun with the hose that transports the water to it. Take care of garden hose fittings and they will last a long time without creating a hassle. Fail to take care of them and you will end up with a dirty and drenched patio.
When it rains it is possible that the water on the ground will carry debris and dirt onto the concrete paving slabs that make up your patio. The same thing can result if you are in possession of a damaged garden hose fitting; leaking water will carry debris and dirt. This creates a mess as well as something else that you are going to have to take care of and clean up. I am all for doing things in the simplest way possible so I recommend repairing your fitting the instant that it stop working effectively.
Repairing a garden hose fitting is completely within the average person’s abilities. It involves a little physical labour and a little mental thought, but nothing that is too tricky. Sometimes fittings get bent because they have been smacked off rocks too many times. I recommend fixing it the same way it was broken; get two rocks bigger than your fist and smash the fitting back into a nice usable shape.
