Ok people, ideas needed here. Backround, in my old house i had nice old garden hoses that i connected to the hose bib every year, no problems. I moved 2 years ago and bought new hoses. I did get the heavy duty type, not cheap. When taking them in last year, they fused to the hose bibs. So im thinking dissimiller metals, aluminum and copper. I have 2 ideas, coat the conections with something. Teflon tape, valsiline etc, or cut the ends off and , go plastic. Im thinking the latter as my property is big and i need to change hoses and fittings a lot. Needless to say, i had quick connects, but they fused to the aluminum on the hoses also. What do you do? Why cant they just make copper ends! And im not buying new hoses, i have 6 between 75 and 150 feet. Not in the budget. Thanks.
