The main areas that are susceptible to causing leakages.

The main problem with hose pipes are leakages caused by weakening of a given part of the pipe or tearing of the given zone. Repairing a leak depends on the extent of the damage. Basically, leakages are classified into 3:

1. Small leaks

These are just small leaks that you might not easily find out. Small leaks may occur around the area you've joined two pipes, joined the pipe to a spraying device or sprinkler head. For small leaks, water won't come out gushing on your face.

2. Leaking Spigot

A hose spigot is that insertion done at the end of the hose pipe and which controls water movement out of the pipe. A spigot has both a male a female connector. They are joined using a thread layer connection.

3. Large leaks
