What is Needed to Hook a Garden Hose up to PVC Pipe?

Hook a Garden Hose up to PVC Pipe

PVC garden hose, also known as PVC water hose, simply hose, is mainly used for garden sprinkling, irrigation, and cleaning in daily life. Home or garden projects sometimes need to creatively solve a simple problem, for example, how to hook a garden hose up to PVC pipe?

Follow the helpful guidelines outlined below to connect correctly to avoid unnecessary damage to your garden hose.

Scene 1: No Adapter Required

(Advantage:Connect a Hose to Any Tap)

Preparation & Requirements:

The inner diameter of the PVC hose should be smaller than the outer diameter of the rigid PVC pipe (about 1-1.5mm).

Step 1

Heat the head of the plastic hose (hot air gun or hot water can be used), coat some soap or grease on the outer diameter of the rigid plastic pipe, and insert it into the head of the plastic hose.

Step 2

Then, it can be locked with pipe clamp or low carbon galvanized steel wire.

Scene 2: With an Adapter

Step 1: Cut and Support the Pipe

  • Make a clean cut on the end of the PVC pipe with a hacksaw. (Note: If the pipe is sticking out from the siding of your house, leave at least 2 inches between the end of the pipe and the siding to allow room for the adapter. Keep your free hand out of the way of the saw while you’re cutting.)
  • Deburr the end of the pipe with sandpaper or a file.
  • Secure the pipe to a solid surface, such as the house siding, using clamps. (Note: You normally only need to do this if the pipe is rising out of the ground.)

Step 2: Glue on the Adapter

  • Spread PVC primer on the outside of the end of the pipe and the inside of a male-threaded adapter. (Note: Apply the primer with the applicator that comes in the can. Use an adapter with a slip connection that fits the pipe and 3/4-inch pipe threads on the other end.)
  • Apply PVC glue to the outside of the pipe and inside of the adapter.
  • Slip the adapter onto the pipe and twist it 1/4 turn. (Note: Do this immediately — the glue sets quickly. Hold the adapter in place for 10 seconds to prevent it from backing off.)

Step 3: Screw on the Faucet and Attach the Hose

  • Wrap plumbing tape clockwise around the threads of the male adapter. (Note: This ensures a waterproof seal.)
  • Screw the faucet onto the adapter and tighten it as much as you can by hand. (Note: Use a wrench to tighten it more. Hold the pipe steady with adjustable pliers while to tighten the faucet to prevent the pipe from breaking.)
  • Turn off the faucet, turn on the water and check for leaks. (Note: Tighten the faucet more if water sprays from the connection.)
  • Screw the hose connector to the faucet. (Note: Tighten the connector hand-tight, then turn on the faucet.)
