I have a portable dishwasher, but the water supply line that sanp-locks
onto the faucet is not long enough to use the dishwasher where I want it.
A lady in an orange smock sold me a brass M-M coupler, but when I
tried to use it to connect an extension (actually a 4 foot length of
washer supply hose - seems to be the same thing), there was quite a bit
Since I used rubber gaskets and tightened the connection down quite a
bit, I am guessing that the coupler solution is only for garden hoses,
and not for higher pressure applications.
I know that I can probably easily cut the hose and making it longer
with splicers and hose clamps, but I thought I'd ask for advice before
doing anything non-reversible.
Thanks for any advice.
Just a word of caution from somebody that had one for several
years: you might not be able to do that. The hose also acts as
an outlet for the waste water, and there's a pump in there that
might not be able to push that far.
Oh yeah, added (cough)feature from mine, hopefully yours won't
do the same thing: All of that pressure that they create in that
water hose played pure *hell* with the cartridge in my faucet.
I think I replaced it about every year because it started to
drip, and the cold side never want bad once in that whole time.
