What size thread is a standard garden hose?
The standard was defined by NFPA 1963, "Standard for Fire Hose Connections", then later by ANSI-ASME B1. 20.7, which is 11⁄16 inches (27 mm) diameter straight (non-tapered) thread with a pitch of 11.5 threads per inch (TPI). via
Are all garden hose fittings the same size?
Garden hose fittings come in different sizes to match the different tap sizes, pressure and volume needed and also length. via
Are garden hose threads the same as pipe threads?
Hose threads are almost always the same size, ¾”. Whereas pipe threads can vary greatly from one manufacturer to another and one system to another as well. Hose threads and pipe threads are not compatible with each other and cannot be interchanged with systems using one or the other. via
Does garden hose fit NPT?
Garden Hose Threads (GHT), just like NST and NPSH, seals with a gasket in the female coupling. A typical garden hose may be 5/8" or 3/4" inside diameter but the fitting on the ends will be GHT. GHT is not compatible with NPT. For example, 3/4" GHT is not the same as 3/4" NPT. via

Does garden hose diameter matter?
Here's the thing to remember about garden hose dimensions: A larger diameter of hose carries more water per minute. A larger diameter hose can also be useful in handling differences in water pressure. For example, if you are pushing water uphill through a hose, it will be more beneficial to use a large diameter hose. via

Is the garden hose 3/4 NPT?
Threads are garden hose thread (GHT), which is 3/4" diameter strait (non-tapered) thread with a pitch of 11.5 threads per inch (TPI) on one end and tapered NPT (National Pipe Thread) on the other. via
How do you connect hoses of different sizes?
All you have to do is cut off the threaded part of each hose, measure the diameter from exterior to exterior, attach the coupling (it'll slide inside and outside of the hose at the same time to prevent leaks), and hand-tighten it. Do the same for the other hose, and you'll be good to go! via
What size thread is washing machine hose?
3/4 inch BSP threaded connection (standard washing machine hose thread). via
What type of thread is a hose bib?

Do garden hoses screw into each other?
It isn't difficult to figure out how to join two garden hoses together if they already have standard fittings; you just screw the male connector of one hose into the female connector of the other. You can find parts to solve both connection problems at any garden center, and it's easy to modify your hoses yourself. via
How do you measure a garden hose fitting?
Measure the distance across the opening in the paper tube with a ruler. This measurement equals the diameter of the inside of your garden hose. According to Gardener to Farmer, standard sizes include one-half inch, five-eighths inch, three-quarter inch and 1 inch. via
How do you measure a hose connector?
To determine the size of your connector measure its inside diameter. Do this by laying a tape measure over the mouth of the connector and reading the measurement from the inside wall of one side of the connector to the opposite inside wall. Don't measure to the outside of the wall, that diameter is larger. via
What is a 3/4 NPT fitting?
A 3/4” NPT pipe thread has an outside diameter -OD - of 1.050 inches. Each thread size has a defined number of threads per inch - TPI, or pitch. The 3/4” NPT pipe thread has 14 threads per inch. via
How far do NPT threads engaged?
As a general guideline, after hand-tight engagement, tighten 2 full turns for sizes up to 1 inch for NPT thread fittings. You should have between 3.5 and 6 engaged threads. Any number outside of this range may indicate either under or over tightening of the joint or out of tolerance threads. via
