That adapter is quite common in our own countries........but I also find "industry standard" tolerances are almost non-existent here.

Having said that..........Pipe Masters on T. Padilla St in Cebu City has about everything you need.

Well, I tried to have a machinist make me the adapter I was looking for, but the hose threads he cut were just a little bit undersized, and and it leaked too much to use. However, yesterday I happen to be looking for something else in the hardware store, when I stumbled across something called a 3/4" tap adapter. It has both a 3/4" female pipe thread, and a quick coupler fitting to attach to a garden hose. It's made out of pretty cheap plastic, so it will probably last until someone pulls really hard on the hose.

Aghhhh.... I see what's going on here. Those shut off valves (good idea by the way, lessons learned with the water tank) I'll extend some more pipe and then there's the same fitting just like the shut off valve but no valve, it does have those two-way threads on each side and then attached to that end I'll put a heavy duty steel faucet and then attach the hose.

Nothing lasts forever but for sure the hose fitting and the faucets fail and won't last a year if that, the D.I.Y. shop does sell replacement plastic hose ends, both sides and in the hose fitting's section usually by the washer hoses they sell steel hose connections a two piece kit when all else fails, with this I'll follow it up with my emergency old inner tube, long strips cut to re-enforce the strength of the rubber hose connection by wrapping it around several times and tieing.

If the hardware store has some extras, buy them now. You may never see them in stock there ever again.

The reason I want to use the type of shot off valve (ball valve shown in above photo) is because I picked up two ball valves (not yet installed - not the one shown in picture) that have a place to put a padlock on them, so that people cannot turn your water on and off when you're not around. Maybe I'll get around that that later this week.

The reason it leaked is because you didn't hire a Filipino plumber to apply two full reels of PTFE tape and half a tin of plastic padding.

And also the 300 - 400 Pesos that I would have to pay the plumber, the free lunch that I would have to provide for him, and the fact that he would be hanging around my house for an entire afternoon, just to connect a hose to a pipe.

Small price to pay and it wouldn't leak for at least 2-3 days
