Remove the gaffer tape and substitute that for self amalgamating tape - will extend the life of your original hose by a long way.

Bend the pipe to open up the cracks add super glue .. bend the pipe in the opposite direction to close the cracks and hold tight for one min. make sure its clean first..super glue is great for rubber.
Or.. get some large diameter heat shrink tubing .. slide it over and shrink it on .
