Default Pipe Adapter

I'm looking for a pipe adapter that will go from 3/4 NPT to 3/4 hose thread, similar to the adapter shown in below picture.

I have people using my water to wash their cars, and other nonsense, when I'm not at home, and I would like to replace my two existing hose bibs with lockable 3/4 ball valves (which I already have) but I need a way to attach the garden hose to the new ball valves.

Has anyone seen this item for sell here in PI?

Couldn't you have one made at a machine shop?

I bought an adaptor like that at Ace Hardware in the states a few years ago. Don't know if you might have the same luck over here though.

Looks like I may have to get someone in the US to send me one. I'm really surprised that they don't have them over here. Back in the US we use those types of fittings in drip irrigation, so they are for sale all over the place.

I might give that a try if I can't find it by any other means. I asked a local plumber where I could find the adapter, and he told me that I didn't need one, and that I could just thread the hose directly onto a 3/4 male pipe. I gave him an old hose end and threaded nipple and asked him to show me how it's done. After about ten minutes he managed to get the hose cross threaded onto the pipe, but it wasn't at all tight, and it would have leaked like a sieve if you tried to use it for a water tight connection. Well, it was entertaining anyway.

The biggest problem with trying to find one is that no one - and I mean no one - working at any hardware store here will any idea what you are talking about. We used them in air conditioning repair in the US, but good luck finding it here.

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

What's wrong with that, how mine is connected and it works right? lol

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.

My first thought is is that the actual size? Maybe its some weird foreign PI size. I've brought plumbing supplies over from the US and nothing would fit.

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.

Have you thought about printing the picture of the adapter then send the house girl, a worker, etc. into town to find it? I've done this many times with parts, etc. that I've needed.
