    where to find male pvc 3/4 inch garden hose to garden hose adapter

    HI I need a pvc or plastic male 3/4 inch garden hose adapter (male both ends) for my drip system. All I can find are brass 3/4inch male to male garden hose or pvc 3/4 inch male garden hose to male pipe threading. Anyone know where I can find pvc or plastic male x male 3/4 inch garden hose adapters on both ends? thank you

    You need to look at irrigation fittings, no the regular plumbing fitttings, selection is limited in most big box stores but most will allow you to order online for free store pickedup... Try searches for

    3/4" MPT to 3/4" MHT

    http://www.homedepot.com/p/3-4-in-Th...-D49/100111603

    Or you can build your own...

    Coupled together with

    https://www.lowes.com/pd/LASCO-3-4-i...dapter/1067457

    using a short section of PVC in between

    No one side is 3/4" pipe thread the other side is 3/4" hose thread, similar looking but not the same...

    If you want a hose to hose gender bender in plastic, you will probably have to find one online or make yourself one with two of the hose threaded fittings like I posted from Lowes as most of them are going to be brass only...

    is it a salt water tank?
    if you look at the plumbing in your house ill bet youll find brass fittings in the water lines.

    Unless you have super copper sensitive critters like snails or possibly some invertebrates in your tank, a brass fitting here or there isn't going to be an issue... As said above, for salt water it's not idea because of corrosion issue, but for fresh water expect in the most extreme cases a little brass here and there isn't going to be a problem...
