Bib to Timer Hose Help/Suggestions

sethmgJune 4, 2013

Hi All,

I have built myself a make-shift automatic sprinkler system with a four station timer. My hose bib is low to the ground so I need to run a 5 foot hose from the bib to the timer which is attached to a metal stake in the ground. The hose will be under constant pressure. I used a regular garden hose, but it started bulging under the constant pressure, and it if burst I will likely end up with water in my basement.

Anyone have a good suggestion on what kind of hose to use from the bib to the timer? Any links to them on Amazon or other sites where I can purchase them would be really helpful.

I found that some people suggest a washing machine supply hose, but they seen to all have two female ends.

Thanks so much for any help.

Get an adapter to put on the washing machine hose that is male hose threads on both ends.
