  • There is no specific length of "hose threads" - and it (long) is irrelevant as it is NOT tapered. Only issue would be if they were too SHORT!
    A female garden hose connector will work fine with properly cut 3/4" NPT threads. The only reason it would leak is if the pipe is not cut square on the end (which is NOT an issue with a NPT fitting) such that the gasket can't seal against the end of the pipe. So...if a piece of pipe or nipple is cut, reamed, and threaded correctly all on the threading machine, it should work fine - I have several such connections.

No public wish lists :(
