I did the same thing. Instead of paying over $7 for a male and female repair connection, I bought a 10 ft length of hose at Wally World for $3.98 and just cut the ends off and used them...yes I had 9' of remaining hose, but it was cheaper to do it that way.
Side note: The remaining hose can be cut into 1 ft sections and used when staking up small trees to protect the bark from the staking wire. If you feel bad about wasting 9' of hose, donate it to your local landscaping professional to use for tree staking.
