    Is it possible to replace the ends on a vacuum hose?

    Dear Friends:

    I have a fairly new vacuum hose. The ends are cracking. Is there an easy repair? Anyone have pictures of how to replace the ends? I would like to save my hose if I could.

    Sincerely,

    If it is the non swivel end then there are replacement available at most decent pool stores for a few bucks. I have never seen a swivel end replacement, however, so if that end is bad you might need to replace the whole hose.

    They do make swiveling replacement cuffs. I didn't know it, but I went to SCP to pick up some regulars and when I opened them up they were swiveling. Which is cool and all, but I needed the regular ones... Anyway, they exist.

    Can't find a picture of it but this seems to be one.

    I replaced mine last year, got one of each, one with swivel and one without, ordered them online from leaslie's. Much cheaper than a new hose. I used some silicone and just twisted them on.
