If it ran this warm,it may have a stuck thermostat,this will cause it to continue to run hot,and water is ok to fill it,coolant is better but only after you have figured out the issue.

Gotta find the reason why the radiator hose built up enough pressure to explode, otherwise your only replacing an ancillary part and not the actual cause of the overheating.

Well it only was overheating after we replaced the radiator hose after it blew up. 2nd thing one of our clamps were not working and we ran the car without coolant when it was 102°. Now this morning the hose popped off,while driving to get coolant and clamps. (Didnt originally have an overheating issue) Thanks for all replys

If you refilled with proper coolant level and bled air from system and hose still popped off, something is over-pressurizing it, and that may indicate a bad head gasket.
