Some of the quick disconnect may specify flow direction. Specially if you are using the shut-off valve kind. I am using the quick disconnects from McMaster with silicone seals for a higher temp rating and no shut-off valve. I choose the male on tank and female on hose because of economics. The female quick connectors are a lot more expensive
For more details, you may want to post your question to the "Zen Master" Bobby_M. I followed his recommendations on the Q. disconnects.
