Picture of Male-Male, Female-Female Garden Hose Adaptor

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

Picture of 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

(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.


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.

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.
