In response to Re: Where can I find components needed to build custom hose?
Just install pipe to hose adapters and then use the pipe thread hoses. I am surprised the plumber did not have the expertise to do it.

: My plumber is installing a whirlpool tub with the Kohler Cirrus faucet. What Kohler doesn't tell you is that you need hoses to connect the fill valves to the faucet. The hose should have a 3/4" female NPSM (garden hose threads) on one side and a 3/4"female NPT thread on the other. They have such a hose, but its only a foot long, and I need 7 feet! McMaster Carr has build-your-own hose and a male 3/4" fitting, but no NPSM end. I image other suppliers have more options but have had no luck finding any.

: Plumber doesn't want to sweat pipe, as it would have to wrap around the tub, go around the pump, etc.

: Any help grealy appreciated. (Local plumbing supply houses said they don't make hoses, and don't know where to get the work done.)
