OK, perhaps a silly question, but I need advice from someone who has done this. My gravel vac has the adapters to attach to a standard fawcet. Well, my tank is in the basement, and I use the service sink to to the job. The problem is that the service faucet has no aerator, and the spigot is larger with outside threads. I'll need to stop at the hardware store and get an adapter. I would REALLY prefer NOT to have to take several trips back and forth to the hardware store until I find the right adapter. I'll take the vac with me, but I have no idea how to measure the fawcet spigot to know what size of adapter to get. Holding up a ruler, it looks to have about 3/4", maybe 13/16" outside diameter (outside of the thread to outside of the thread). I do not have a caliper or a thread pitch guage.
Are these spogits standard sized (that would be very cool)?
