Has anyone seen this item for sell here in PI?

I was just in town and happened to be in traffic and saw a huge sign in front of one of those hydraulic hose repair/makers. On the sign were pictures of some of the fittings he sells and it looked like he sells a male fitting similar to the one you need so you may want to inquire there if you have any in your area.

I even bought a kit made for a washer connection locally and ended up doing that. Must've been made for a million dollar condo in Manila where maybe pipes are threaded.
Because he ruined a perfectly good water hose. Now I cannot use my yard sprinkler... because there is no end on the hose.

Maxx62...seriously consider Mcalleyboy's suggestion about going to a machine shop and just have them make exactly what you want. Last year, we broke an adapter on one of our water purification filtration systems in Tacloban, Leyte and we had one made at a machine shop in Ormoc City for around 280 peso's and in only an hour or so it was finished and ready to use...much less than you will ever get one bought in the US and then shipped to you and then wait about 30 days for it to arrive here in the Phil Post lost and found system, if it even gets to you at all.

Most any machine shop can make anything if you can adequately explain to them exactly what you want. Typically I have found that you can find most anything here but the real challenge is to know where to look.

Try taking the parts and pieces with you and actually show them what you want to do. They may even know where to get one without making it. I am sure you will get what you need for less money and far faster than shipping one from the US.

Good Luck...

I would think they would be available... just on your own trying to find it...

I told uncle I was going to get a fitting like that to hook the water hose to my washing machine. He goes outside and comes back in 10 minutes later and tells me it is done. Yeah, it was done. He cut the end off my good water hose and hose clamped it piece of pipe... It is more fun in the Philippines
lol its true. I had screen doors made for my house, and they didnt have any latches on them. I ask about a screen door handle latch and he says he would fix it, an hour later he come in and showed a small slide lock on it. I sometimes feel like I am speaking alien, because nobody in any hardware store has a clue what I am asking for.

Have you tried the D.I.Y. hardware chain stores they have all sorts of fitting like this.

Instead of a real hardware store maybe try a plumbing/hardware stall in the market or wherever? Since it's one guy that owns it he'll know everything he's got in there and might have better luck. We have one in town in Samar. 20x20 ft store but he's got 100s of parts in there and always has what I'm looking for.

Like mcalleyboy said maybe pari can weld you up a hinged box to enclose the tap with a padlock hasp.
Yeah, both sides of the adapter I'm looking for are standard sizes. One side is standard 3/4" National Pipe Thread, and the other side is standard hose thread. Theoretically 3/4" US NPT should be completely compatible with 3/4" NPT here in the Philippines, but I think that they have some severe quality control issues with pipes sold here in the PI. A lot of times the pipe threads don't seem to be tapered correctly, or to have the correct pitch, so they don't always fit like they are supposed to. At least, that's the way it appears to me.

The only place I haven't tried is Yale Hardware in the downtown area. However, next week I think that I'll try a couple of the small mom and pop places, as someone else suggested.

The helpers we have over here are pretty green, and I think that they came from the mountains of Palawan, or Mindanao. I'm afraid that they would probably come back with a handful of magic beans if I sent them out on such an errand. Nice kids, but they might get lost in Cebu.

They have the ability to make a threaded fitting like this? And it screwed right on?

If you want parts, tools, dust pans, rakes, hammers, BBQ grills and reworked automotive parts the Machine Shop or Welding shop is the place go, amazing but the skills are there, the tools last for years the stuff you buy in the hardware stores doesn't last in the harsh environment and it can't be reworked, so you end up buying it over and over again.

The low labor costs and available metals, hardware, steel bars make it possible, I've learned from my in-laws and neighbors they don't buy the same old garbage I used to buy the plastic or thin metal dust pans, the rakes imported from the US, I made the dust pan out of medium gauged steel and the handle is made from PVC pipe, my rake is now made out of steel and the handle is steel pipe, not the heavy gauge but the cheaper gauged steel pipe.

Basically fed up with items sold in the stores or not finding things that work, impossible or the cost is way to much, the imported items that don't last, so I try to manufacture or make my own or have it built/re-worked for me. My smaller dog keeps twisting his steel chain so I made a anti twist unit like what's used for the Roosters but heavy duty it keeps his chain from twisting, made it from the heavy gauged steel pipe and medium sized nails, he had the same thing used on the roosters but that's made from aluminum and so he's bigger now, had to upgrade the ring to heavy duty steel.
