I hang the hose ending on the garage door rafters and let the oil ooze over night. Then I just disassemble the hose from the can and wind the hose into 3 coils, sticking the smaller male end into the female end. No problems so far???
Sorry to here about the implosion, have you called the place you bought it from to see if they will swap it with a new one? Never know, they may have a great "Customer Service" policy.
