What is the term for the rubber coupling with 2" ring clamps?


I'm trying to order 3/4" ones online because local stores don't see to carry them that small.

Are you talking about Fernco couplings? good luck finding one that small. You might be better of using radiator hose and clamps-

Found em on eBay:

3/4" Fernco Pipe Connector Coupling

Expensive, but nice if you need to take something apart in sections and can't use threaded.

I wonder what you will use them for.
Only thing I can think of in 3/4" is a supply line, do you think they will hold the pressure with hose clamps?

Yeah, there really leak proof. Obviously I'm just using them for utility pumps, I doubt they'd hold back 40 psi.

I generally run all my water lines 3/4", since all but the beefiest pumps tend to have a 3/4" outlet (I have a 1 hp cast iron one with an 1 1/2 outlet, always wanted to use it to make the worlds more wasteful shower -- it would have to have a separate water holding tank, probably would backup the drain)
