Answer: 
if the hole is near the end and you won't have to cut off too much, you can get an Orbit Model # 27943 for the male end or Model # 27944 for the female end or they have a Orbit Model # 27990 which is a splicer type fitting to make repairs in the middle of the hose. with any of these, you cut the hose off and slide the hose clamp over the hose and slide the barbed fitting into the hose and tighten the Read More

Answer: 
If the hole is near one of the two ends, cut the hose evenly and install a male/female hose mender. If the hole is somewhere in the middle, cut the hose clean on both sides of the hole, and install and hose-to-hose mender. If all else fails, turn in the old hose for a new one. I wouldn't recommend patching, taping or gluing.

Answer: 
If it's a hole in the middle you'll want to use this mender: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Orbit-5-8-in-Inline-Male-Metal-Mender-27945/100659290
cut off the section that damaged and join the two remaining sections.
Use the mender pictured only if the male end of the hose is what's damaged.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Warning! Do not use! Warning! Unless you are looking for a project down the road, don't use these. I bought four of them and learned the hard way that they corrode very quickly where the threads make contact with hose bib, nozzle, etc., eventually making it impossible to remove, no matter how much WD-40 you use. They are cheap aluminum fittings colored to look like brass. Aluminum presents a greater risk of galvanic corrosion than most other materials. This means that where it comes into contact with other metals it corrodes quickly, and the result is the threads become permanently stuck together. So unless you are handy with tools and want to waste the time cutting away and knocking the old threads off with a chisel, hopefully not damaging your hose bib, nozzle, or other fitting in the process, then go with REAL brass (but these seem to be getting harder to find at home depot) or plastic. I've attached a picture of the aftermath. September 13, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not Brass as described... Warning: This mender is no longer made of Brass as described in the product specifications. It is a 2 piece cast material. It does come with a stainless hose clamp. This is a mediocre repair kit at best, but size and function will work in a pinch. I would recommend that Home Depot revises the product description AND picture ASAP. October 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buy a separate 3/8 to 7/8 in clamp and you are set Based on various reviews I did not trust the clamp that came with the hose-end mender. I bought my own clamp that is a little smaller (3/8 to 7/8 in) so I could really tighten it down. I'v e been using it for days - no leaking, not a drop. A very cheap alternative to a new hose. February 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works as described I bought these to basically make a male to male hose to connect 2 hoses together, don't ask. they worked great. a great way to fix a bad hose end. I highly recommend. March 21, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Long term issues I was sorry to see the metal hose end menders changed from a decent metal fitting to an anodized (?) aluminum. I repaired several damaged hose ends with these last season (2012). The installation was straight forward, although I was not a fan of the dangling metal end on the hose clamp used to secure the replacement end. They worked. This season, I found the replacement hose end threads were oxidized/corroded and were very difficult to join. Had to use pliers and ended up damaging an original end trying to screw on a replacement end. Give me a brass fitting any day. They last for years. May 2, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by not brass. over priced for coated pot metal. Not a quality brass fitting. I have bought the real thing in years past for the same money at the same store. Now it's a brass counter fit for the same money. December 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fixed what was broken I was surprised at how easy it was to fix my hose. This hose end was water tight with very little effort. Kept me from having to buy a new hose, so I'm happy. November 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by useless still leaks, look for a brass one with a better mechanism to tighten September 11, 2014
