Garden Hose Adapters

PVC garden hose adapters provide an easy way to connect your home garden hose to a PVC pipe line. We carry a full selection of durable fittings for connecting to male and female hose ends to suit your unique needs. Standard home garden hoses are 3/4” size. Some of our garden hose fittings are reducing parts (3/4” x 1/2”), so they are made to reduce the size down to a smaller size PVC connection.

Connecting A Garden Hose to PVC (Plastic) Adapters - Fittings

Garden hoses like the ones found in the front or backyards of most American homes, are generally ¾ inch size. They employ threaded metal ends to connect to a valve or to your hose nozzle for washing your car or watering plants.

Our unique PVC adapters are made to connect your standard garden hose to PVC parts. This can be especially useful if you are using a PVC pipe line for irrigation or for a fun DIY water project with the kids. Our adapters come in a variety of types for different connection.

Garden Hose Connection Types Explained

  • FHT = Female Hose Thread – This means your garden hose end has threads on the outside and will screw into the female hose thread adapter.
  • MHT = Male Hose Thread – This means your garden hose end is female threaded (threads are on the inside) and this adapter will screw into the hose end.
  • FPT = Female Pipe Thread – This end type has threads on the inside of the adapter, and it is made to be used with a PVC male threaded part. FPT ends do not connect to a garden hose, only to other PVC parts.
  • MPT = Male Pipe Thread – This end type has threads on the outside of the adapter, and it is made to be used with a PVC female threaded part. MPT ends do not connect to a garden hose, only to other PVC parts.
  • Slip = A Socket End Fitting – This is a socket end fitting made for the same size PVC pipe to fit inside and be installed using solvent cement.
  • Spigot = A Spigot End Fitting – This is a fitting end that is made to fit inside the socket end of a PVC fitting of the same size. Spigot ends are the same outside diameter of a piece of PVC pipe of the same size, and they function like an end of PVC pipe.

Great for DIY Projects

PVC is ideal for DIY projects, because it’s cheap, light, and durable. PVC is unique in that it does not scale, rust or pit. PVC pipe and fittings are also available in hardware stores across the US, so it’s easy to find the basic “building blocks” to put together whatever you dream up. More unique parts like our garden hose adapters are still very economical when compared to similar metal parts.

Wondering what you can do with PVC and your garden hose? Just do a quick internet search for “PVC water project” and you’ll see there are tons of possibilities! Some of our favorites are DIY PVC pipe sprinklers keeping the kids cool in the summer and custom PVC pipe irrigation systems for watering your garden or planters thoroughly and efficiently.
