View Full Version : Hose fitting info needed
03-24-2007, 03:58 AM
I am workign out the water system on the Big Gay 80. I have a freshwater tank, pump and plumbing between the 2 figured out. I considered going to a faucet perm. mounted on the outside but I have a feeling I will destroy it! I have looked all over but what I want is a simple attatchment for the end of a hose that has an on/off flow control. Maybe a thingy just held on by a hose clamp; nothing complicated!

This is what I did. Plastic ball valve.
Bought several pipe thd plugs as shown and drilled out different hole patterns to get a nozzle I like. one shoots really far, others are more gentle.
Got everything from Mcmaster-Carr.

Thanx, great idea. What type of hose are you using?

I'm using 3/8" ID PVC beverage tubing. I think 3/32" wall with a max pressure rating of 36 psi. My pump's switch is set at 30 psi I believe. Check out page 100 of the online Mcmaster-Carr catalog.
Mcmaster-carr, all the way.
Check out the garden hose/fittings section as well, lots of nice disconnects and valves.
