Water Filter Housing Fittings

Argh, this is driving me crazy. The connector that goes into the top of my water filter housing and connects to my fresh water hose got stripped and I'm trying to find a replacement part. I've tried every hardware store I know and googled it every which way but with no success.

I've included a couple of photos of the part here. Does anyone know where I can get it?

In the meantime, I've cobbled together something that works but I would like to have the part anyway.

Thanks!Click image for larger version

I bought a brass hose adapter at Menards last month when I made my own black tank rinsing wand. It has female hose threads on one end, male 1/2" NPT on the other.

Those adapters are sometimes hard to find but any good plumbing supply should have something.

Thanks for the response.

The female hose connection fits a regular garden hose and the end that goes into the filter housing measures 5/8" across. The photo you posted doesn't resemble my part.

I've only been searching for the nylon version thinking the brass ones had a different thread type. I'll expand my search

I just remembered, I started a thread about my home-made tank rinser wand in general discussion forum. I listed the part # of each part there.
UPDATE: Here is the part http://www.watts.com/pages/_products...s.asp?pid=6505. I had forgotten that I had to reduce the NPT threads(internal) from 3/4 to 1/2"NPT with a standard pipe reducer.

Search the PVC pipe fittings bins at any Hardware store. You may find a combo of fittings that will solve the problem. Even a hose clamp could be a solution.

From your description and photo, it looks like you need female garden hose threads on one end and 1/2" male pipe threads on the other. The fitting palehorse89 shows is similar, but it looks like his has male hose threads on one end and 3/4" male pipe threads on the other. Lowe's and Home Depot usually have a display of various brass fittings near the plastic fittings (usually farther up the same aisle or in the next aisle over). Brass adapters with garden hose threads on one end are also sometimes found in the garden department near the hoses.

One word of caution: When threading brass fittings into the plastic filter housing, be extra careful to get the fitting started straight. The threads on brass fittings tend to be kind of sharp, and if you start the fitting a little crooked, it will cut new threads into the relatively soft plastic housing and you could end up stripping the threads in the housing. Don't ask how I know this.
