What is the Difference between a Male and a Demale Quick Connec


    The only thing that separates a male quick connect fitting from a female fitting is where the fitting thread is located. On a male fitting, the thread is located on the outside, and on a female fitting, it is located on the inside.

    The water treatment industry uses several other terms to describe fittings, like connectors and adapters. The terms connector and adapter really mean the same thing. If you want to be specific though, an adapter is typically a fitting that changes venue. On one end, there is a thread connection, and on the other, there is a stem adapter. However, they both are still connectors. The threaded side connects to other threads, and the stem side connects to tubing.
