A majority of garden owners must have, once in lifetime encountered a situation where the hose’s metal fitting refuses to connect to the spigot. So what causes the condition? This is probably the first question the unfortunate garden owners would be tempted to ask.

The condition occurs primarily when the threads in the spigot and those on the hose fail to establish compatibility. The only probable solution to the problem is getting hose couplings. They are designed in a manner to fit both the hose and the pipe quite comfortably, thereby connecting the two. However, before you go looking for hose couplings, here are some important things worth knowing?

Standard hose couplings are made to fit nearly all garden hoses irrespective of size. The finest of couplings are made from metal. However, brass couplings can fare well too. Ergonomic couplings come with plastic grips that make them simple to use. Additionally, the barbed fittings help users to connect chemical hoses to a pipe. In looking for corrosion resistant couplings, it is best to choose between zinc-plated and Nicole plated varieties. However, crush-proof varieties can fight the water pressure quiet effectively. Some people use lead free couplings to meet their drinking water needs.

A good coupling, through heavy compression, creates a seal by getting the threads matched properly. However, if the hose you are using is inferior in terms of quality, then you as well might get a washer for a tighter fit. The fitting’s sleeve, when crimped or compressed, supplies you with an effective seal. Ferrules, as the sleeves are better known, can help you solve leakage problems in a variety of ways.

Hose couplings are sold by a majority of home improvement stores and online dealers. Business organizations looking for couplings or companies in need of hose ferrules should first get a quote from the manufacturer. Countless manufacturers will even offer to ship the products free of cost.
