you need to buy tape and then have one of your people get a drink to lower the water pressure and then tape the hose. thats what i found on jaysgames walkthrough.

I looked in the store for the tape and didn't see it anywhere. Is there a magic trick to this? It wasn't showing under miscellaneous items or home repair...

Unfortunately, it just shows up in the store at random. I had one family get it immediately, and another went into the third generation before it showed up. So just keep checking, and when it does appear, make sure you grab it before the store contents recycle.

***SIGH*** I guess I'll just keep checking... What a horrible concept to put in the game.

Yeah, I agree. That is one thing I really hope they change. I can understand not always making it available in the first five minutes, so everything isn't done right away. But waiting through three gens. before I can do any repairs, is crazy. Right now I have a family that started out with the wall repair goop, and the birdbath pump. Who knows how long I have to wait for the tape.

Getting someone to have a shower works to lower water pressure too. :-)

Put it outside near the bucket. Can't use it though until the back hose is repaired. Once that's done, drop somebody on it and he will mix it up and take it to the workshop to repair the wall. Keep him (them) working on it constantly until it's done, otherwise the mix will harden and you'll have to start all over again.

Only thing free is the hour trial download.

Is there a special kind of tape needed? I picked up the waterproof tape in the store and tried to use it to fix the hose, but it keeps telling me I can't use it there.

Also if you have a leaking pipe in the bathroom or kitchen you can repair the hose because of the drop in water pressure.

Just drop the tape near the hose (there are two hoses - you want the one nearest the kitchen door) then get one peep taking a shower or using water inside in some way, drop the other peep on the hose, and that one should fix the hose.

my problem isn't having too much water pressure, it's not having enough. Any ideas how to fix that? I'm trying to use the wall compound. I have it near the bucket, but there isn't any pressure to use the hose...

Look in the forum for answers to all the questions I see here.

To do the Wall: you must first repair the hose where you see the puddle of water.

Then you only have to drop an adult on the bucket. Make sure you stand by and keep him at the work until it is done, otherwise you will have to wait for another wall repair kit to finish.

having to wait through 3 gen and still not having the tape is taking the fun out of the game, I hope that they fix that.

You may have to buy something to get something new to show up in the store.. I always get the work kits weather I need them in that generation or not.. save them for next round..
