The only way you have a slight chance of a successful repair is by using a ‘compression union’ - provided one can be found that’s the correct size and the line is straight enough at the damaged section.

Any other attempted methods will fail in short order - there’s simply too much pressure - the hose clamps will not hold the hose onto the metal line - fact!

The BEST repair is replacement!

JB Weld or any other patching materials is a waste of time and money!

However you can certainly try it if you like..

Good luck!
