Recently i had to connect two garden hoses together but they had both male ends. You can buy an adapter for about $15 or make your own set for $10. For about $5 ill show you how to make a Female to Female garden hose adapter.

Step 1: Parts

Not much you need just 2 Female hose couplings and about 6" of garden hose

Step 2: Cut Around 2-4" of Garden Hose From the End of Your Hose

Cut around 2-4" of garden hose from the end of your hose

Remove the couplings from their packaging

Step 3: Assembling Step 2

Assemble the pieces, and tighten the clamps.

(not much else i can say)

Step 4: Assembling Step 3

Attach a coupling to the end of your garden hose if you want to still use it.

MAKE SURE TO USE THE SAME SIZE HOSE AND COUPLINGS

In the picture i used a 3/4" coupling on a 1/2" hose, the coupling should fit snugly in the hose. If you have to force it in its to big, if it falls out its to small.

Step 5: Done

That's pretty much all i can say about this. These costed about $5 each were you would have to spend $15 for a store bought one.

Your favorites and comments are greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Matthew

Not sure of the price difference but most hardware stores have hose to npt threaded adaptors. Two of required adaptors, a pipe coupling of the correct size, a bit of pipe sealant,and you don't have to worry about the hose or the worm clamps. A tee used instead of a coupling and you build the last hose splitter you will ever need.
