Outdoor shower replacement

I've been to Home Depot twice looking for the correct adapter to replace the existing hose with a shrinking garden hose. All I can find are the tapered NPT threads adapters.

Cannot find an adapter the screws on straight down to rest against a rubber gasket.

What am I missing?

I made my connection at the other end of the installed hose but I think the technique is similar. If Home Depot can't help you go to another store. I put a 1/2" male pipe thread (to screw into the free end of the hose after you remove the sprayer) to a male or female (depending on what you want to connect it to) garden hose thread. Where the 1/2" male fitting screws into the shower hose you need some pipe dope or teflon tape. Even though the hand shower fitting used a rubber washer, it's not used when you go with the 1/2" male hose fitting.

Here's another option for you. You can get a flex line for a faucet with 1/2" gasketed fitting then put a male hose fitting with adapter on the other end. That gives you the option of hooking a hose to it or just using a standard spray head which works better than the plastic hose and head.
