3D model description

I have been threatening to build a DIY pool heater for a couple of years now. I have half a dozen of those cheap Intek filter/pumps that pump nowhere near enough water for a large pool, so I plan on using that as the circulator. I will connect the pump to a black, 100' garden hose to act as a solar heater. To do that, I needed a way to couple the pump's 1.25" hoses to the garden hose. I didn't want to cut the hose and use barbed connectors like other people often do... I wanted the hose to remain intact. I have yet to figure out how to design threads in CAD, so I am relying on this fantastic pair designed by codemite for the threaded portion. To use this, you will need to print one each of the male and female couplers.

I am a self-proclaimed know-it-all. I will tackle any project regardless of my experience, or lack thereof. Always ready to learn something new. With over 25+ years experience in electronic repair and 10+ years experience in small engine / ATV / motorcycle repair, there is nothing I can't fix, modify or build.

Why a pepper? In case anyone is curious as to why there is a hot pepper embossed into most of my designs... My nickname is Pepper and that little pepper logo is a hell of a lot shorter than "Copyright © 2017 by Derek J.G. Tombrello" which is how I usually sign my work :)
