Hose Thread
Officially called "Garden Hose Thread" (GHT), hose threads are found on garden hoses and many irrigation parts and adapter fittings. Generally referred to as "3/4" hose threads" the outer diameter is 1.0625 inches and has a pitch of 11.5 tpi (threads per inch). Hose threads are NOT the same as pipe threads and should never be screwed into pipe threaded fittings.

Male hose threads are found on the outside of a fitting and thread into female hose threads.

Female hose threads are found on the inside of a fitting and accept male hose threads.

Hose threads do not require Teflon tape or pipe dope (like pipe threads), just a hose washer. If you find a water leak with hose threads, it is most likely a worn hose washer. It may be time to replace it. Hose washers are found inside fittings with female hose threads. See also Pipe Thread, Adapter, Swivel, Hose Washer, Teflon Tape.

Pipe Thread
The common term for National Pipe Thread (NPT). Pipe threads require Teflon tape or pipe dope to create a water-tight seal. Do not thread together pipe threads and hose threads. See also Teflon Tape, Pipe Dope, Hose Thread .

Teflon Tape
A non-adhesive tape (made of Teflon non-stick material) that is used to create a water-tight seal with pipe threaded fittings. It is tightly wrapped in a clockwise motion 3-4 times around the male pipe threads. Male and female fittings are then threaded together.

Hose Washer
Rubber gasket found inside fittings with female hose threads that makes a water-tight seal. See also Hose Thread .

Tips & Tricks

Use Teflon tape on pipe threads
For a water-tight seal

Always use Teflon tape with pipe-threaded fittings. Wrap Teflon tape clockwise 4 - 5 times around pipe threads. Hose-thread fittings use a hose washer to make a water-tight seal.


Sprinkler irrigation systems are commonly used in lawn irrigation systems and other planted areas where a spray or mist is desirable. For plants that require uniform coverage of water (grass, ground cover, seeds) a sprinkler irrigation system is appropriate.

If you are installing lawn sprinkler irrigation systems, Irrigation Direct carries a variety of supplies and parts like an adjustable nozzles for Rain Bird sprinkler heads. Our shrub adapters are perfect for garden sprinklers and shrub zones.

Combine pop-ups and rotors with electronic sprinkler controllers (timers), and inline valves to automate your landscape sprinkler irrigation system. Browse our Sprinkler System Supplies and Parts to find sprinkler nozzles, bubblers, swing assemblies, cut-off risers, Marlex 90s, and more.


Drip irrigation is a watering method which delivers water to plants slowly and right where they need it at the roots. Where typical pop-up sprinklers spray water into the air and onto plants, drip irrigation systems combine flexible poly drip tubing and drip emitters or "drippers" to both conserve water and save money.

Drip irrigation systems are not affected by wind and will greatly reduce evaporation and runoff common with traditional irrigation systems. Drip irrigation is the perfect solution for raised vegetable garden beds, hanging baskets, and potted plants.
