Question

How do I control water pressure and prevent the hose from bursting?

Answer

Preserve the hose and control water pressure by adjusting the handle at the faucet.  DO NOT turn off water from a hose-end valve with the faucet on!  It is not necessary to fully open the faucet.  Open the faucet slowly, approximately half way.  If any part of the hose breaks while you are using it, it is your responsibility to repair it immediately.  Hose repair kits are available through your garden leaders or they are stored in a designated area.
