1st off, I appreciate your help. I'm not the smartest guy on the rock, but I'm trainable, or so my wife tells me.
I assume the SS is for Stainless Steel, right? So this part seems pretty cheap online, but the shipping is going to jack the price up. Unfortunately, I do not have a LHBS, so I either have to source at a Menards/Lowes/etc. or spend like $10 on a $2 part and pray I don't order the wrong size (like I did for part of my order at McMaster Carr).
I don't need anything special about it, right? It just needs to be metal, and probably should sanitize it before I stick the hoses together?
What section of the store should I look to find this? Plumbing?
Thanks for your help. If you swing through Iowa City the beer is on me.
