There isn't much action over in the pest control forum so I thought I would run my question past you fellers. Are there any good quick connect couplers out there? The specific sprayer I'm messing with has a 3/8" hose about 3 feet long or so at about 70psi and I'd like to be able to swap out spray guns easily. I've tried all the hardware store models and they leak. I have an old one that didn't leak and haven't checked the brand on it, but it sure did rust up solid. I only need to swap out every week or two.

Right now I'm just going back to a hose barb and screwing it on and off, but don't like doing that as I have cracked some handles in the past. What about the pressure washer screw together couplers? Do those work well?

I don't know what a pressure washer "screw together coupler" is. We use quick connects as does everyone else that I know of in the industry.

The QCs come in both brass and stainless. I much prefer stainless.

Try a female swivel NPT connector like what is used for airless spray. Might have to find a Parker Hose dealer. It's not the pressure that your running but the chemical. Might look at brass or stainless fittings.

Good advice
