Hose to Pipe Adapter
A major area of confusion when designing a drip system is the use of fittings and components with unlike threads. Some fittings have only pipe threads while others have only hose threads and some have both. Hose to Pipe Adapter fittings are used whenever you need to join incompatible threads. All hose threads are the same size. Use thread sealant tape or thread sealant pipe dope on all pipe threads to prevent leaks.
