Are the hoses old? Did you do anything with the cooling system rescently? i.e. Change the coolant, bleed it?

Is it close to anything, like your clutch line? It might be rubbing up against it and that might be causing your hose damage.

Seriosly, is there a rodent problem in your area? maybe they're eating through the hoses? I don't know why they would though

They can either crack over time or when you have a lot of pressure, it can bust a hole. Has happened to mine several times. Replaced it with brand new OEM one's and all has been well since. Well, only until the next older hose went bad. Then one bad hose after the other. Radiator hoses and heater hoses have all been replaced now.
