I could use some help understanding how to measure and describe the size of a garden faucet.
I need to replace a garden faucet fixture (for the sorry details, see How to repair this leaking garden faucet - update (broken stem)).
I measured the two openings but the measurements do not agree with the stamp on the side. The stamp says 1/2. The inner diameter of the two openings are 3/4 and 5/8. (See photos.)
What size fixture should I buy to replace the broken one?
(I am not going out to shop due to the pandemic. I seek enough information to order a replacement online.)
