    Hello,

    I have garden hose sprayer hooked up to my shower hose that is a temporary solution for now. My plumber used two fittings but said there is a single fitting available.

    Is the fitting I most likely need the following:

    3/4" GHT Male x 1/2" IPS Male

    I know that both ends are male and I'm pretty sure the sprayer is 3/4" GHT (Garden Hose Thread)

    Does such a brass fitting exist and where can I find one?

    There are so many pipe thread specification names that if you don't search for the correct term you don't get any results and are stumped like I am now.

    I have seen 3/4" GHT Male x 1/2" NPT Male but I don't think that is what I want.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can often connect 1/2 NPT into a straight-thread. Does the thing you are screwing into have a gasket?

    The difference between ips is straight thread npt taper thread same threads per inch. Garden hose 3/4" 14 un thread
    Box stores have a assortment of adaptors around faucet repair parts.

    There is a rubber gasket in the female end of the shower hose.

    I found this:

    GESHATEN 3/4” GHT Male x 1/2” NPT Male Connector, Brass Garden Hose Fitting, Adapter, Industrial Metal Brass Garden Hose to Pipe Fittings Connect (2 Pack)

    I was wondering if this looks like it will work.
