SATURDAY, JULY 30, 1060 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE THIRTEEN Garden Hose Is Often Misused B? MR. PIS Written lot AMR* Considering it's such a relatively simple piece of equipment, a garden hose ought to last indefinitely. But. it vton't. Neglect will shorten its We. A simple act such as putting it away each time it's been used will do much to preserve it. Toughest foe of a hose is the automobile. There's no apparent damage when an auto runs over a hose. Th/e material is flexible and springs back. In time, though, the hose will break down at that point, will develop cracks or a split. If the host must be stretched across a drive when it's in use, do something to protect it. A simple bridge can be made by placing pieces of scrap wood on each side of the hose. Wheels will go over it without crushing the hose.
