How to keep from losing your water hose connection fittings


Recommended Posts

I posted this back in 2018 but was reminded of this again this morning. While disconnecting my hose I noticed my city water female hose connection fitting was loose.  The picture below shows the fitting after I removed the strainer/ washer.

You need to carry a 1/2 inch hex key (Allen wrench) or you’ll have to use a bolt with a head that fits a 1/2 inch wrench. Just snug this fitting up after removing the strainer/washer.

Be sure to replace the strainer/washer after tightening the fitting. 
 

 

 

Here is the post that I made about this back in 2018. Just disregard the threadjacking in the middle of the original thread.

I figured out one of mine was loose because it was spraying water when I hooked the hose to it…  didn’t have a 1/2” Allen wrench at the time, but I do now.. 

any project requiring a new tool is a good one as far as I’m concerned. 🙂
