A: Hi Sam, The Hose Mender is designed to be used for irrigation purposes only.
A: Both sizes 5/8 and 3/4 are considered to be "typical". I think you would be most happy with 3/4 as I , but it depends on how much water flow you want and what your household water pressure is. I am usually disappointed when I use a 5/8 hose.
A: 5/8 hose work perfectly
A: Thanks for your question. Although there's no warning about lead, the California Proposition 65 warning includes a notice for arsenic content. Prop 65 does not attempt to determine safe levels of toxic materials, so it's up to the consumer to use the general warning to make an informed decision.

A: Brief overview of the repair process: Neatly trim the end of the hose that you want repaired. Insert the brass fitting into the end of the hose. Then screw the metal brackets together, thereby clamping the hose over the brass fitting. There is no place to put a washer in this process. After you have made the repair and wish to connect the female end of another hose or wish to connect something like a spray nozzle, then, yes, by all means use a washer to ensure a good seal between whatever you're connecting and the newly repaired hose. The washer fits inside the female end of whatever you're connecting.
A: I did. A washer always aids in bimetal connections and makes removing the fitting much easier

A: No washer is required as this is a male fitting,
A: No washer needed this slides into then clamps on to the end of your damaged hose. A washer is used on anything you attach to the male threaded end.
