Recently I got a used rainbow e2 electric hose from ebay and it's in good condition. I brought it so I can save it for a rainbow e2 blue. Only problem I found out is that the end of the hose, there's a torn spot. Is there a way to fix it up? Since this one has double insulated wires. Thank you.👍

Can twist off the end of the hose in a counterclowise pattern. You cut the hose shorter and symmetrical and reinstall the end of the hose

Cut them with wire cutters. This won't effect the hose at all.

But if you cut the wires in the hose, you have to somehow reattach them to the hose ends so that you can provide electricity to the power nozzle. Itís not a simple process to reconnect these wires.

I was thinking. Can a good type of super glue that has a good air tight seal and adhesive will work instead of me trying to take it apart or cut a piece of the hose off?

E6000 and heat shrink or electrical tape over it and heat the heat shrink.

Lesinutah, just saw your post. A couple of days ago I got some miracle wrap and some super glue to close up the tear and then use some silicone sealant for the outside and inside.

That's basically the same concept as what I suggested.

Lesinutah, hopefully the hose is safe enough for wet pickup when using the aquamate.
