I always take mine to a local hardware store that also sells and repairs high-pressure hoses. I think they charge me like 8 bucks for both the fitting including the repair so that's pretty reasonable. Btw, I've tried swivel fittings before and everyone I've tried leaked and didn't take too long about it. I won't buy swivel anymore for my solution hoses for that reason. If this is your main solution hose I'd leave it non-swivel.

It's going to be just a backup hose, but I agree, the swivels never seem to swivel anyways
