I bought that hose too. That's the only part I'm waiting on. The website had a problem. They charged me correctly for 1 hose, then tried to double charge me for a second hose. Not happy with their communication either. I paid via Paypal and they keep sending me Paypal bills for the extra $20. They don't want to ship until I pay it. I've indicated several times that I only want 1 hose, but I don't get any responses. They still haven't shipped anything after a week.

How do you attach the QDs to the hose? I'm thinking that I can slip a 2"-3" 3/8" black iron pipe nipple into the hose and use a worm clip to tighten it down. Then screw the QD onto one end of the pipe nipple.

Is that how everyone is doing it?


Edit: Well they did ship the hose. Actually they shipped 2 hoses. I called to let them know and they informed me that there was another box on the way with even more hoses. Hmm...this could be one for the ethics thread? Actually, I'm shipping them back at their expense. He said when I placed my order the system just lost it's mind. Apparently my order has been a topic of conversation for their IT guys for the last week.

I got 25' of 1/2" ID hose, Goodyear Pliovic PVC hose. It is generally blue in color. Mine has 1/2" male NPT fittings on each end, as an integral part of the hose. Made it real easy to just screw on my 1/2" NPT QDs. The QDs I bought are HERE. Still at an excellent price for what you are getting.

OK - that's great. I just got the same hose and QDs today. I haven't really looked that closely at it yet. That makes it a whole lot easier than I thought it would be. Thank you. Hopefully I would have figured that out eventually, but you never know.

That is both ends needed for a connection right (Male and Female)? So one would need to order two of these to hook up a gas system?

Thanks,

I like this build. I keep dreaming of having the space to build my own brew stand.

I just bought one...the gas hose will be permanently attached to the rig and only disconnect at the house.

I bought two - one for each end.

Sure - I'd like to know the dimensions. How tall is it?
