Scepter 5 gallon water container NPT or Garden Hose Threads

This is a relatively easy hack on Scepter 5 Gallon Water Containers.

This will provide you with a O.D. Male Garden Hose Thread Connector.  It will also provide a I.D. Female NPT Connection.  This will allow all kinds of DIY connections or accessories.

This was originally adapted so a short piece of garden hose could be attached to the 5 gallon Scepter Container.  To aid in transferring water into the gravity water fill on an RV/Camping Trailer, when boondocking.

The internal Female 1/2″ NPT is useful for screwing in a threaded brass valve.  The Container can be left on its side on a picnic table the valve opened like a spigot to wash hands, or fill other containers.
