Trying to establish PEX connection dimensions

Hello:

I have been looking at PEX connectors online for a 3/4" (ID) PEX hose. That is, a PEX connector with one end that goes into the hose and the other (male or female) going into at water outlet connector (intended for a regular garden hose)..

My male or female garden hose connectors seems to be 1" in outer/inner diameter, but I cannot find any info online of the corresponding diameters on the non-hose side of the PEX connectors.

Any info you can offer would be appreciated.

What are you specifically looking for?

Most PEX fittings fit into the PEX tubing, then some type of ring is attached to hold it permanently in place.

Here's some technical specifications for PEX in general. Does this help?

Garden hose fittings are 3/4" threaded GHT (garden hose thread) or NHT (national hose thread).
These are straight 3/4" threaded with no taper like standard plumbing fittings use.

That means..... I doubt you'll find fittings that will attach to PEX and allow you to connect a garden hose to it.

Zorfdt, I should have said "connectors". It would have been more accurate. See PJmax's response. However, I have saved the site you referenced. It can only help.

Thanks,

Ohh, sorry, I must have mis-read. You won't find a single connector to go from PEX to garden hose, but you can make your own.

I'd use something like:


And connect it to:

using some teflon tape.

There are similar connectors for male/female differences depending on what you specifically need.

Okay, Zorfdt. However, my hose connectors ave an 1" diamter (treaded part). However, I figure I can use your "I'd use something like this" and then a 3/4" female to a 1" male (or female) adapter.

Thanks for your help.
