Any advice to help me fix a plastic crack in my hose wand. I used a heat gun it didn't work. It's in a spot hard to get to but read about model glue but don't know what to glue to it. ThAt piece of plastic might work so tried to smooth it on it but did not work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    My go to miracle repair tip is the Oatey epoxy putty stick.

    I have repaired numers household items with it.

    This clay like putty can be sculpted and fill defects. It does harden in a few minutes and will dry a gray color can be sanded or drilled and will needing painting unless its final gray color works for your repair.


    It's a two-part epoxy sticky-found at big box hardware stores in the plumbing department near the pvc purple glue. In a clear plastic red capped tube. I get mine at Lowes $6. Home Depots its version and JB Weld is another but more $ and smaller. Other smaller 2 part epoxy sticks options can also be found in the boat marine rv and wood repair shopping sections.


    You mix -press -then you can use scrape off excess (I use depleted gift card) and/or sand and paint. Cured putty is strong enough to drill through.


    Putty safely seals/waterproofs for plumbing boat repairs.... Ive used it for exterior entry door frame wood rot repair, repair, multiple arts and crafts repair of damaged pottery- wood -ceramics, plug up holes in planters laundry tub sinks, repair cracks in planters or make a new lip on the pottery planter, both metal and wooden candlesticks. Ive repaired holes in a utility garage sink ( thanks previous HO) repaired a break in the top rim border of an elliptical peddle, repaired damages in a concrete statue, fixed a split wood disk on a wind chime, its a great defect filler, those ornately detailed gold plaster frames and be repaired with this putty and wood filler.


    Consider the epoxy putty for your repair needs.I hope this helps.

    I would buy another one from the dollar store, You could try gorilla tape.

  • Hi, Marie!

    In all honesty, cracked plastic is hard to repair so that it is usable again. In my opinion, it’s best to just buy another hose wand. I hope this helps!
