Also known as a 'garden hose';
what do you call them in the USA?
I understand that you even have a special thread for yours - GHT (Garden Hose Thread)! We still make do with good old BSP (3/4")
Maybe we are not 'two nations divided by a common language' but 'two nations divided by dissimilar garden hose threads?
I must remember not to bother to bring my own garden hose when I come and tour in the USA!
