I bought many of these sets to replace the plastic versions I had purchased from a local box store. The plastic versions worked ok, but several broke over time and connections were sometimes leaky, sometimes hard to connect or disconnect.
The new brass sets work great. I tested each and none of them leaked. The only leaking occured when the gasket in the hose item I was connecting was tired. Have a set of new gaskets on hand and replace them. Old gaskets get stiff and crack causing leaks.
Teflon tape is unnecessary. You don't stop leaks by filling in gaps in the threads, you stop leaks by applying good pressure between metal and gasket.
A major advantage to this type of disconnect is that the internal diameter of the fitting is larger resulting in significantly less hydraulic loss when the hose is operating. This matters if feeding a power washer, trying to get sprinklers to shoot farther, or trying to hose off your car. If you use 3/4" diameter garden hoses (which are somewhat unusual), this coupler is even more important.

Poor interchangeability due to manufacturing tolerances2017年7月11日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This item couples up fine as a pair, but does not fit similar brass quick connects or even the same branded product. The male end requires removing a few thousandth's with emery cloth on a drill or lathe for it slide into other female connects (not a big deal but is sort of a nuisance). Would think some standardization is appropriate especially if one has many hose connections as I do. Since these are (over) pricey to begin with I would expect closer tolerances on parts for interchangeability. I give it a three because if you need these things it is priced a little more competitive, than the price gougers that offer the same thing.
Don't waste time with plastic hose connectors2014年3月2日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I use quick connectors for fittings around the barn, which require frequent disconnection and reconnection for regular cleaning--and any leakage is unacceptable, if I want to maintain a dry, healthy space for my horses. For years I had bought what was available at the local hardware store; all they had was plastic. Finally I bought brass connectors, this Gilmour model and Dramm 22629's. Both work so smoothly and effortlessly, without any leakage, that I could kick myself for sticking with the cheaper plastic models (like Orbit) for years. Get these, or the Dramm, and avoid my mistake!

Works great. Although you might want to spray down with some lubricant once in a while if you leave your hoses out in the weather. A few here and there quick connects in the past on my hoses that are exposed to the rain and cold have had trouble getting apart. But you just need to spray it down with some type of lube like wd40 or something and jiggle a bit and you will free them. These brass ones are way better in quality and durability then the plastic ones. I would buy some extra rubber seals as well just in case. I have had mine for about 7 months now and haven't come across the usual problems I see with the cheaper quick connects I used to buy. I have 4 of these. You can also buy the female and male parts separately. I have these quick connects on everything.

Great just to save a little time and hassle, but also for emergency preparedness!2016年12月18日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
One of the people who lives on our property is just sure the pipes are going to freeze if you don't disconnect the hose... even if it's 70 degrees out. This is Colorado, so I suppose it's not a totally misplaced fear. Anyway, these little buggers make life SO MUCH EASIER... so many of our hoses are old and cross threaded that it can take a bit to get them screwed on to the tap or hydrant. Plus it's worth noting we live in a high-fire area and quick connects could save valuable time in an emergency. I'm going to buy more of the female ends so I can put them on all the hoses. Haven't tried the other brand but (at least when I purchased) these were way cheaper and work well enough I don't know why I would.
