hose leaking water?

my garden water tab is leaking when i connect it to a water hose. I have used different hose but got the same result exactly. Please see the following 2 pictures. The first one show from where the water leak and the second one shows that i cover the tab with white strap to prevent water from leaking but it is not leaking from there, it is leaking from other location, please see the picture (it is hard to explain it) thanks a lot.

Your tape job won't help. Garden hoses don't seal at the threads. The bottom of the spigot should have a flat surface, which seals against a washer, which seals against the end of the hose. If any of these 3 things are damaged, or the washer is missing, you may get this kind of leak.

Don't do that yet. Unless somebody was beating on it with a hammer, the faucet is okay. Make sure there is a new washer in the hose end. Just one. Then make sure when you screw the hose on it is going all the way on and compressing (pushing down on) the washer. Nothing wrong with using pliers to tighten it if you don't overdo it. No offense, but if you can't figure this out get somebody who is a bit "handy" to help you.

With the complete and utter lack of understanding displayed thus far, I tend to agree with you. She doesn't need a new faucet. The faucet is fine. It's the rest of the house that's the problem, and needs replacing.

Hmmm, Use Channel lock or Vise Grip wrench and tighten the hose fitting pretty firm and see what happens. Looking at the bib, looks pretty old house? Up here they are all anti siphon and anti frost type.

try tightening it -------------------------------------------------------------------- Bob,
I think you the closest so far. The faucet needs repacking.
Based on where the attempted repair was made with tape, it's probably got nothing to do with hose/washer/spigot connection. That theory is bolstered by her having tried three different hoses.
I have old spigots like that. You have to turn off the main, remove the valve handle and the cover underneath and wrap teflon faucet packing (it's like thick, gooey string) around the stem. It's a *very* simple repair that takes a screwdriver for the handle, a wrench for the "bell" and a few bucks for faucet packing. OP should search google for "repacking outside faucet" to find a how-to site with pictures.

often ALL you have to do is tighten the packing nut around the valve stem a 1/2 turn.
my faucet had started leaking that way, i hadnt taken the time to tighten it.....
a old friend stopped by and said oh you need a new valve too just like ours, hers was leaking too at her home. theirs was soldered in her hubby didnt want to touch the project. the water was running indoors and getting into the main breakewr panel:(
so i showed her how to tighten the nut. she went home and did the same thing:)
PROBLEM FIXED.
her hubby was amazed, and mad he was afraid she would break something.........
its a 10 second fix almost anyone can do.......
if you somehow overtighten it the worst that can happen is the valve will get hard to turn...... easily solved by backing it off a little.
its the best kinda repair

If you turn the valve off and the leak stops, it's the hose coupling. There is no other cause. The only way that water could be coming out of the hose coupling like that is that there is no washer in there, or the ferrule (that metal ring under the coupling nut that circles the hose) is cracked inside the coupling.

It's not leaking in the second picture without the hose attached, so the valve assembly is good, unless you turned off the water to that valve from inside the house. You said you tried other hoses. Did you make sure there was a washer in those (not using the same washer from the first hose)?

a leaking stem packing can definetely wet the wall, and spray the operator when it gets bad enough
