Secondly, what is the difference between male and female hose connectors? The difference between Male and Female connectors is simple. Just like people the Male has a sticking out “pin” which he plugs into something. The Females on the other hand have a “hole” in which to receive something, usually a “pin”!
Also question is, are all hose connectors the same?
All fittings are the same size, but specified by pipe or hose's internal dimensions. So typical fittings are 3/4-11.5NH or 5/8-11.5NH (3/4 is the internal diameter, 11.5 is the thread pitch).
What do you need to connect two hoses?
Installing and Using Quick Connectors Once you've installed these connectors, joining the hoses is simple: Pull the spring-loaded ring on the female connector back. Insert the male connector into the female one and push it in all the way. Release the ring on the female connector to lock the two halves together.
