How connect Toilet Valve to Garden Hose?


Hi!

I'm looking for the shortest way to connect a 7/8" toilet valve straight to a Female Garden Hose for a project. Is there a single adapter that will make this connection and still keep the connection as short as possible?

A 7/8" Female IP x Female Garden Hose adapter would be perfect is such a thing exists. If not, how would I do this??

Thanks,
Dave

Home depot has a pretty good selection of adapters it may take a couple fittings but it is still better than ordering something online to me.

It maybe easier to connect a toilet supply line up first and then adapt from 3/8 or 1/2 to garden hose

Just another example of manufactures making things more difficult to sell more product.

No, no, no. Ballcocks (toilet fill valves) have always had their own thread type. No pipe is ever designed to screw on to the ballcock threads directly. All connections must be some sort of compression, i.e. rigid or flexible toilet supply line or pex adapter fitting. Just do what "JustinK" posted, come off the ballcock with a flexible toilet supply line. To make it easier use a 7/8 ballcock x 1/2" fip sized line. From the 1/2" fip you can screw in a 1/2" mip x female hose thread adapter. Any store that sells plumbing supplies should have the fittings you need for this simple hook-up.

Ya at one point the manufacture decided to make there own thread type. Even if it was 60 years ago

So what are you building Dave?
