Garden hose questions
so, I bought a hose . . . my first! I had to look on YouTube to figure out how to coil it, I'm such a newbie! My questions:
First, my hose leaks from the connection to the faucet when it's on. It leaks a lot, and we're in a desert, so I am wasting water. Am I doing something wrong? I'm sure it's screwed on pretty well, but I kind of don't want to screw it on as tight as I possibly could, because I'm afraid I won't be able to unscrew it.
Also, when turning it off, it briefly sprays a lot of water from the connection, but a friend of mine told me, "it's supposed to do that." Is that correct?
I'm also worried about water from the hose damaging my stucco exterior (from the leaking/shutting off). Is there anything I can do to protect the exterior wall?
