Q:Any chance this zinc hose mender will get stuck to a brass faucet the same way aluminum does? Not much point in using it if that's the case.

Answer This Question

A:  I wouldn't trust this 'faux' brass fitting to Not get stuck. For insurance, smear a material called "No-Alox' or a similar material HD does sell to protect that from happening. I keep 3 tubes of that stuff around for all these faux brass fittings.

      A:  Don't know. A normal user is not in the position to find out about the content of the metal components. Have to find this information from the manufacturer.

            Q:What is the hard washer at end of packaging for, is it just for packaging or part of the mender

            Answer This Question

            A:  I don't understand your question. The black washer in the female end is to seal to the hose

            by|May 4, 2023

              A:  It is part of the mender. It's what keeps the water from seeping past the threads which can result in leakage and even spraying of water.

                  A:  If you are talking about the hard plastic washer that keep the hard plastic piece that runs through the piece on the unit, no it is not part of the mender. The hard washer is used to keep the unit in one piece. Yes the unit comes with the usual soft washer used to seal the hose to the hose bib (your home water spigot). The washer part keeps the soft washer from being separated/removed/stolen off the part. In this day and age, people seem to steal things unless they are nailed down. This hard plastic washer is part of the proverbial "nail".
