Just tried to change the water on my 45 gallon tank and noticed my lovely dog chewed a gaping hole through my hose. Can I just replace the hose or do I have to buy a whole new water changer?

I don't owe one but i'm guessing you can just buy a new part...I've heard of others buying the attachment so i assume you can buy the hose as well.

You can replace the hose I have had to do it twice due to one my pack chewing the hose. I just went to Home Depot with the damaged one and they cut me a new one.

Great! Hopefully it won't cost as much as a new one. I'm not too thrilled with my canine friend right now.

im so redneck i would just duck tape the crud out of it. then too finish it all up i would soak it in super glue
Trust me, I thought about taping it up at first, but then I realized that wouldn't be the safest thing to do. Needless to say, this hose will be stored in my fish cabinet, out of reach of the dog.

Why not? I've used duct tape IN my tank before. Duct tape fixes everything.

I was concerned about exposing them to the adhesives on the tape. Its replaced now, so no worries.
